5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Alan Burridge on 2 July 2010
Format: Paperback
Marlon Brando, James Dean, Alvin Stardust, Lemmy from Motorhead. And as Lemmy himself said, "You put one on, and that's it, you're bad."
This book tracks the history of that bad but instantly rebel look of the black leather jacket, from those mentioned above to bondage and fetish gear where the fragrance is also a factor in the equation.
Channel 4 TV later made a documentary to accompany this book, with 'Easy Rider' Dennis Hopper narrating. It was also released on VHS, but now long-deleted, so a DVD would be welcomed. Meanwhile, enjoy this lavishily illustrated and superbly written book on a most unusual subject.

I felt that there was nothing new (including the photographs) or particularly insightful about this book.

A primer on motorcycle jackets 28 April 2013
By BikerBehr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Certainly not complete but this is a good primer on black leather jackets. It gives you plenty of pictures of how and why of design.
Good insight.... Needed more of a biker focus 12 Mar. 2014
By mike fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book. Good insight. But not enough info on the biker culture. I had no interest in the punk culture, for example.
