The history of leather jackets traces its roots back to the early 1900s during World War I. These jackets were initially introduced as bomber jackets for German fighter pilots who flew at altitudes of 25,000 feet, dropping bombs. The primary purpose of these jackets was to protect the pilots from the harsh conditions they faced in the high-altitude environment. Eventually, the concept was adopted by the US Army, and over time, leather jackets underwent an evolution in their appearance.
One significant milestone in the evolution of leather jackets came when Harley-Davidson enlisted the expertise of Irvin Schott, an English raincoat maker, to create their first café racer jacket. These jackets were designed specifically for bikers, providing them with an outer layer for protection and enhancing their biking experience.
