The art of keeping the leather jacket on point

 

When we think of leather jackets, what may come to mind are old school German Pilots, Harley Davidson, Marlon Brando and The Sex Pistols.
Yes since post WWI the leather jacket has been adopted by film makers, actors, singers and has always represented and portrayed an iconic lifestyle.<

Why do we love this classic garment? Well, apart from the fact that leather jackets are the epitome of coolness, they are also long lasting.

However, when it comes to a rainbow of styles and vintage shops, Tokyo comes a close second. It is one of the most influential fashion capitals, where people are known for their innovative street style and eccentric outfits.
