    Post Guys who wear leather jackets are thought of as badboys, has anyone else found this?

    I wear a tatty old leather biker jacket (the sort that have the zips and buckles - the kind worn in the film Grease)and have found people avoid you and think you're untrustworthy because of it. I bought it when I was 13 at a car-boot sale and now 4 years later have properly grown into it. I like the feel of wearing my heavy leather jacket and feel confident and good with it on. Has anyone else found people are intimidated and by see you wearing it? I intent to carry on wearing mine as I like it and is my trademark. I think this and my earring worries people. Please leave your opinion!

    Sean I don't think people would avoid you because of the bad boy thing. If it is tattered looking they may just think you are unkept and out of style. I would just toss it in the closet and look at it once in awhile and get a nice new jacket or even a used one that is more stylish. I think you are just making the wrong assumption.

    Sean I wish I hadn't said that you should toss it. If you are happy and it makes you feel good wear it. Heck with what people think.

    I should seriously hope that people don't judge you by the clothes you wear... but if they do, they are just ignorant. There is nothing wrong with wearing a leather jacket! If you like it, wear it - who cares what other people think??
