Slick Rick

Looking for the perfect leather jacket can be a very daunting task. A zipper or stud too many, a colour too light or a fit too loose can be an instant turnoff (much like finding the perfect jeans).
Rick Owens however, the dark fashion designer a.k.a. master of glunge (glamour+grunge), does a very good job at designing enticing leather jackets (and much more). He's been doing so for quite a long while in the women's department, but only recently he launched his menswear line.
These images are from his Fall '09 collection, full of morose, black and stern pieces but with a touch of intellectual wit.
Mr. Owens never fails to fascinate, and so do his designs.
Leave the manskirts to the pros though.
