This past weekend, I visited Milwaukee's Harley Davidson Museum, and the special exhibit they had was "Worn To Be Wild: The Black Leather Jacket". Fortunately for me, I visited just in time since the exhibit finished up on September 3rd. And it was a very interesting exhibit, full of really cool jackets throughout history. They referred to the leather jacket as the Adventurist's Armor and The Antihero's Anti-Sportscoat, and there were many styles to see.
There was the first incarnation:

Staples of Rock-And-Roll style:

Although this exhibit at the Harley Davidson Museum is over, another is just around the corner. I don't know what the next special exhibit will be, but I'm sure it will be just as stunning.
