A jacket is a mid-stomach–length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically
has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally
lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some
jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.
A leather jacket is a jacket-length coat that is usually worn on top
of other apparel or item of clothing, and made from the tanned hide of various animals.
The leather material is typically dyed black, or various shades of brown, but a
wide range of colors is possible. Leather jackets can be designed for many purposes,
and specific styles have been associated with subcultures such as greasers, motorcyclists,
military aviators, police, and music subcultures (punks, goths, metalheads, rivetheads),
who have worn the garment for protective or fashionable reasons, and occasionally
to create a potentially intimidating appearance. Most modern leather jackets are
produced in Pakistan, India, Canada, Mexico and the United States, using hides left
over from the meat industry. Fabrics simulating leather such as polyurethane or
PVC are used as alternatives to authentic animal hide leather depending on the needs
of the wearer such as those pursuing vegan lifestyles or for economic reasons as
synthetic fibers tend to be less costly than authentic leather.
Antelope, buckskin, lambskin, sheepskin and cowhide are the hides most commonly
used to make leather jackets. As soon as the skin is removed from the animal at
the meat processing plant, it is refrigerated, salted, or packed in barrels of brine.
It is then sent to the tannery where the skins undergo a series of processes designed
to preserve and soften the hides. Sewing materials such as thread, lining, seam
tape, buttons, snaps and zippers are generally bought from outside vendors and stored
in the garment factory.
