MUMBAI: While we have constantly reported about women’s fashion, there are a few items of menswear that come packaged with as much attitude, heritage or unfiltered masculinity as a leather jacket.
The leather jacket is such a classic and versatile item of clothing that’s been on trend since the beginning of time and will never go out of fashion. If you don’t already own one, this is a ‘must’ staple piece missing from your wardrobe. The first contemporary-looking style arrived in 1928. A Manhattan raincoat maker, Irving Schott, designed a motorcycle jacket for Harley Davidson. Dubbed the ‘Perfecto’, after his favourite cigar, this leather jacket was built to protect riders from the elements and accidents.
Today, the garment is likely to be one of the most expensive additions to a wardrobe, so don’t be a rebel and make a shrew purchase if you still haven’t.
We have television celebrities in the likes of Sharad Malhotra, Parth Samthaan, Mohsin Khan, Siddharth Nigam, Vikas Gupta, Remo Dsouza, Karan Singh Grover, Sehban Azim, Harshad Chopda and Aly Goni inspiring all the men to go all out an up their winter fashion game!
