C'mon guys,lighten up.Is Mick Jagger a poseur? I've seen many pictures of him sporting a motorcycle leather,yet never astride a Harley.How about The early Beatles,seldom seen without MC leathers.The Ramones,The Clash,seldom deemed poseurs,yet always in leathers.To take it further,should anyone in a trench coat actually have to be a spy,or be looked upon as a phony?Or anybody in a pea coat not a veteran "Swabby"? Better yet,how about a jeans jacket or Levis jeans or cowboy hats.You'd better be a real honest to goodness cowpuncher or be frowned upon.Go tell a rap star he's a poseur for wearing an uniform jersey yet isn't really an athlete. Pu-lease,what do you think many forms of fashion are derivative of? An actual functional piece of garb.Though people wearing motorcycle leathers may have never ridden one,they've become undeniable,iconic classics of American and international fashion,and I don't think people should ridicule them simply because they don't have "helmet in hand." I have more respect for someone in motorcycle gear than for the masses in their North Face, cookie cutter,"I wanna be like everybody else" garb.
