Waist Length Leather Jackets
Should you be looking for a more casual look, then the waist length biker or racer style bomber should be right up your street. In a varied range of colours and with button or zip fastening, these leather jackets with a vintage twist can be worn with confidence by men of all ages. This iconic garment has come a long way since it was first worn by fighter pilots in the first world war. It made the crossover from the military to fashion wear when in 1928 a version was designed for Harley Davidson. From then the vintage leather jacket became synonymous with class and panache. It was given an additional cachet of edginess when sported by Marlon Brando, James Dean and Steve McQueen. It showed its adaptability to all situations when the pop culture of the 1950/60’s took the ubiquitous leather jacket to its heart and vintage bands like the Beatles ensured its continued rise in popularity. The longevity of this garment in one guise or another can still be witnessed today in both vintage and high street fashion. It’s a timeless classic.
