Leather is still a favorite material because of its durability, natural weather resistance and thermal properties. Leather is fashioned into all sorts of items today.

There are some jackets that started out as really a functional part of a uniform. Like the motorcycle jacket which is very popular and has been since it hit the fashion scene in the nineteen thirties. The reason that leather was the chosen material of motorcycle riders is because of its durability. These leather jackets are used as a second skin, in case of a fall they will protect the body from road rash.

These functional leather jackets are still the favored apparel of motorcycle drivers and still provide the same protection, but they are also favored by the masses for their tough skin look.
