By | Pedal Mode | No Comments

Thanks to James Dean and Indiana Jones, there is no substitute for leather as the ultimate cool. The classic take of wearing animal hide conjures ideas of rebellion and bad boys on Harleys. Today, the leather jacket spans the entire fashion panorama from punk to chic.
