Leather jackets or rather the lather biker jackets were a big furor in the olden days and that’s how one could related a biker, like a Cowgirl was known because of her exquisite sense of dressing i.e. due to the leather chaps then. Then there was time when Marlon Brando shaped a revolution with his raging and maddening to earn one leather jacket in those days.

Well, in those days, the application of leather was also extended to the use of leather pants and accessories. Leather pants in those times when worn by women were considered hot, sexy and appealing.
