jedna kožna jakna /one leather jacket


Is there anything more timeless than a leather jacket? Considering that first clothing was made from fur and leather, it must had been one of the first clothing items.  However, what we know as the leather jacket today is more similar to the ones worn by aviators and the military in the early 1900ties. Leather jackets have since been associated with many  subcultures and groups (soldiers, cups, bikers, punks, goths, metal-heads etc) and ultimately they have made their way into closets of most people.



Što je muškarac bez brkova, što je žena bez dobre kožne jakne? (to sam baš morala napisati) Vjerovatno je kožna jakna jedan od prvih komada odjeće ikada napravljenih, uzimajući u obzir da se u samim počecima civilizacije odjeća radila od kože i krzna. No, kožna jakna kakva nam je poznata danas nastala je u prvim godinama 20 tog stoljeća i nosili su je zrakoplovci i vojnici. Sve od tada, kožna je jakna popularna u mnogim subkulturama i i udruženjima (vojnici, policajci, bajkeri, rokeri, metalci, punkeri itd), a zadnje vrijeme kožne su se jakne našle u ormarima većine ljudi.


Perhaps we can make the distinction between the fashionable leather jacket (that has made its appearance in the last few years) and the one that is used more or less as a protective piece of clothing or even equipment. Don't get me wrong I like them both ( I wear both types), but they are different.

Možda možemo napraviti razliku između kožne jakne koja se nosi u zadnje vrijeme (neću reći pomodne jer to zvuči nekako negativno) i one koja se koristi gotovo kao zaštitni dio odjeće (ili opreme, barem je u tu svrhu napravljena). Nemojte me krivo shvatiti, meni su draga oba tipa kožnih jakni ( i nosim jednu i drugu), ali se jako razlikuju. 



  Fashionable leather jacket is usually lighter and more practical to combine with various clothes. Design of the fashionable leather jacket can vary. In addition, fashionable leather jacket can be worn more or less in all seasons (you can wear it to a summer concert for example).  " Real leather jacket" (let's call it that) is usually heavier and provides us with a complete protection from the wind. Sometimes those leather jackets that are made for bikers have even additional protection in the case of a fall. The design of the leather jacket is traditional and hasn't changed since the days of early aviators.. The one that I'm wearing on these photos is the latter type. It is vintage, older than myself and very heavy ( I'm sure I weight a few pounds more when I wear it) and suitable for colder or windy weather.

"Nova" kožna jakna je obično znatno lakša i jednostavnije za kombiniranje za raznom odjećom, može je se nositi više manje u svim sezonama, npr. prebaciti preko ramena na nekom ljetnom koncertu. Razlika je i u izradi jer zna biti modernijih krojeva. " Prava" kožna jakna ( da je tako nazovemo) je obično teža i potpuno nas štiti od vjetra. Ponekad kožne jakne napravljene za motoriste imaju čak i dodatnu zaštitu u slučaju pada.  Kroj ove kožne jakne je tradicionalan i nije se promijenio od dana prvih zrakoplovaca.  Ova koju nosim na fotografijama je ova posljednja. Starija je od mene i jako teška (sigurno imam koju kilu više kad je nosim) i pogodna je za hladnije ili vjetrovito vrijeme (dušu dala za buru).

  12. Hello Ivana,

    leather jackets has for me ever such a little bit of a "hard look", like a rocker. But your right: you can call this piece of clothing "timeless".

    Your here showing combos looks all really cool. But your combo on your last pic, is for me almost a little bit to much: with your leather jacket and leather cap you looks almost like a domina - i´m sure you didnt want this. Fortunately you didnt wear a leather pants to this outfit - this were, in my eyes, way to much.

    What do you thing about this?

    Bye.

    Jennifer

    1. yes, maybe the leather cap is a bit too much with this leather jacket but I wore this outfit when I was in the mountains so it was important to stay warm. I wouldn't wear such a sporty and causal outfit in the city, I only dress like that when I go hiking.

    2. "I was in the mountains so it was important to stay warm" - yes i know - moutains can be a windy place.

      hiking is a cool thing!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
