Marlon Brando: The Wild One

Marlon Brando starred in 1953's "The Wild One" as Johnny Strabbler, leader of the Black Rebels Motorcycle Club. Two years before, Brando had made a fashion statement with his t-shirt ensembles in the 1951 cinema classic "A Streetcar Named Desire"; yet this time he made a statement with his black leather motorcycle jacket worn over jeans and a t-shirt.

Worth noticing as well are his cap and of course his Triumph Thunderbird 6T motorcyle (James Dean was inspired by this film and bought a similar motorcycle).
