Isn't it a costume though? unless you're a fighter pilot from the 40's.

Just about every modern leather jacket is based off either fighter pilot jackets or biker jackets, so it's not that much of a stretch... I get what he's saying, if it looks beat up it looks like what it is (a cool thrift store find) while if it's new it just looks ridiculous.

Isn't this one of these unwinnable 'authenticity' vs. 'costume' arguments?

 

The only completely undeniable fact is that any leather jacket looks bad with flip-flops... crazy.gif

Now I understand what you meant when you said you could pull off leather and flip flops.

You're a douchebag.
