|A leather jacket is a type of clothing, a jacket
made of leather.
The jacket has usually a brown, dark grey or black color. Leather jackets can be styled in a variety of ways, and different versions have been associated with different subcultures.
For instance, the leather jacket has often been associated with bikers, military aviators, rock stars, punks, goth's, metal heads, and police, who have worn versions designed for protective purposes and occasionally for their potentially intimidating appearance.
In the 20th century the leather jacket achieved iconic status, in major part through film.
Examples include Marlon Brando's Johnny Strabler character in The Wild One (1953), Honor Blackman as Cathy Gale in The Avengers, and Michael Pare in Eddie and the Cruisers (1983). As such, these all served to popularize leather jackets in American and British youth from the "greaser" subculture in the 1950's and early 1960's.
A later depiction of this style of jacket and time was "The Fonz" in the television series "Happy Days" which was produced in the 1970's and 1980's but depicted life in the 1950's and 1960's. The Fonz's leather jacket is now housed in the Smithsonian Institution, and the Grease movie duo has also since popularized leather jackets with their T-Birds male clique. Back then a leather jacket would have cost between $7 to $20 which was expensive considering the time.
There is a substantial difference between leather jackets made for fashionable purposes and those worn for protection (in activities such as motorcycle riding).
Leather jackets designed for protective use are safety equipment and are heavier, thicker, and often equipped with armor, thus becoming a very practical item of clothing regardless of the symbolism invested in them by popular culture.
A leather jacket primarily designed for fashion purposes is not likely to be of much use in a motorcycle accident.
