* ''Film/TopGun'' is credited with not only popularizing leather aviator jackets in the 1980s, but with the US Air Force begrudgingly reissuing leather flight jackets to its aviators (while the Navy depicted in the film continued issuing G-1 flight jackets with only a short pause from 1979 to 1981, the Air Force discontinued them in favor of cloth jackets in 1943 and only surviving jackets and cottage industry replicas survived into the 1950s).



* Early aircraft pilots wore fur lined leather jackets for the warmth, leading to Bomber Jackets.

* Early aircraft pilots wore fur lined leather jackets for the warmth, leading and this was continued with practically every air force through World War II issuing leather jackets.
** The US Army Air Force began issuing the famous A-2 flight jacket in 1927 and they quickly became a status symbol among American military aviators
to Bomber Jackets.the point where non-aviators (including infantry) would do anything they could to get one, all the way up to buying replicas made by local European cottage industries. They were discontinued from issue in 1943 in favor of cloth jackets, but issued replacements and unofficial wear kept them going in the US Air Force into the 1950s. The Navy never stopped issuing their leather G-1 jacket except for a brief period, however, and the release of ''Film/TopGun'' is credited with the Air Force reissuing new A-2 jackets starting in 1988.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the most distinctive parts of [[IndianaJones Indiana Jones']] wardrobe is his leather jacket, which was based on the A-2 flight jackets issued to World War II aviators. All of the jackets were custom pieces; the original jackets for ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' were made (over a long and arduous process involving many samples and design rights arguments) by Leather Concessionaires (along with a Wilson jacket worn by the stuntman who climbed under a speeding truck).

** The Cap himself has a pretty sweet bomber jacket, and wears one a lot during ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. Peggy Carter also wears a leather coat. In fact, since the first film is a [[XMeetsY superhero movie crossed with a war movie]], lots of people wear badass leather coats.

*** Many steam-locomotive crews wore either a jacket or a vest made of thick black leather, to aid in protection from inclement weather in the open cabin and from searing-hot metal parts. Knowing [[UpToEleven how dirty one gets when dealing with coal dust and also how dirty is the job]] of lubricating the running gear of the locomotive with grease guns and oil dripper cans, they were [[DirtyJobs worse]] than Jim Morrison.
