Leather Jacket as Style Icon
The leather jacket has been a popular style icon since the 1950s and it’s not difficult to see why. These jackets impart a cool, classic statement no matter whether the wearer is male or female. Although leather is available in a variety of different colours, black or brown jackets are the most popular staples in most modern wardrobes. The original flight jackets worn since the early 1900s were reserved for the military and aviators, they soon became known as “bomber jackets” and their heavy insulation meant they were renowned for warmth, particularly at high altitudes.
