When it comes to leather jackets, forget anything too girlie or love-me-tender. We look to the boys for inspiration, and we're lookin' for love in all the wrong places...just like Marlon Brando as Johnny Strabler in "The Wild One". As the swaggering leader of the Black Rebels Motorcycle Club, he's a boisterous anti-hero who broods darkly, invades a small unsuspecting town with his posse, and causes mayhem - all while looking quite fashionably biker-fabulous. We have no doubt if Strabler were still raisin' a ruckus today, he'd do it in some version of this slim fitting nickel-studded, overdyed "Harris" biker leather from All Saints. Crafted from individually-sourced vintage patches, a particularly cool detail is the wire inserted discreetly into the collar for an authentic, chicly crumpled effect. Paired with a pair of their vintage-feel NFL "Kick" denims, an "Anat Chelsea" boot for some modern mojo, and other stylish touches like a "Dark Matters" tee, fringed pompom "Nirvana" scarf, bold horseshoe ring, and "Ulysses" glove with a roomy cement-gray messenger bag tossed on with an appropriately devil-may-care attitude - prepare to step out as a Wild One yourself! (And don't forget sunglasses...yes these "Mercury" ones were made for the fellas, which makes us love them all the more.) All available at AllSaints.com.
