A must-have in every man’s style arsenal, the leather biker jacket is as appropriate on the open road as it is at a late-night loft party, a cottage weekend or Sunday brunch. View this standout item as an investment.  It’ll stay the course through the trends, look better with age, and become one of your favourite pieces over time.

First produced in the 1920s by Schott Bros. as a functional item designed to protect speeding riders from the elements, the jacket shot to fame in 1954, when Marlon Brando immortalized a 618 Perfecto in the classic biker flick, The Wild One. Brando and film were iconic, and designers began to draw on the jacket’s image of rebellion mixed with free-spirited adventure.

Upon learning of his terminal cancer in the 2008 ode to Canada One Week, Joshua Jackson took to the T-Can. in a Brimaco British Cycle Riders jacket, and gave us a conflicted and introspective anti-hero searching for life’s meaning. Still, the jacket’s appeal will always reflect a kind of system defiance, and the look will always belong, at least partly, to society’s fringe – things which make fashion desire it even more.
