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.
