One thing that has always given a movie character an edge is the signature jacket that they wore in a particular movie while playing a particular role. Many of these characters have made particular jacket styles quite popular with the public who wasted no time in getting their hands on such stylish pieces of apparel. In this piece, we will take a look at some of the most popular movie jackets and the style statements that we all loved and admired. These characters made some unique style statements with their jackets and the way they carried themselves. And the public was quick to catch on and adapt their fashion statements. Be it a leather jacket or Bomber jacket men’s, different styles were loved and instantly adopted by fans of these movies. Let’s take a look at some great men’s jacket styles from some of the most popular movies to have ever graced our screens.
THE CRUSADER JACKET (BRUCE WAYNE IN THE DARK KNIGHT):
The Dark Knight trilogy is arguably one of the most prestigious comic book movie series in the history of cinema. It is one of the few that has an academy award under its belt (won by the late Heath Ledger in 2009 for his role as the “Joker” in The Dark Knight). On the other side, the movie’s main protagonist Bruce Wayne (played by Christian Bale) made quite a style statement with this crusader jacket. It comes in different varieties including leather, Denim jacket men, and a motorcycle version.
“It is not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.”
LEATHER JACKET (HAN SOLO IN STAR WARS):
For generations past and present, Han Solo (played by Harrison Ford) is the ultimate space rogue. The Millennium Falcon captain adorned a striking vest in A New Hope and an iconic blue jean jacket for men in The Empire Strikes Back. In The Force Awakens, he goes the leather route with this eye-catching piece.2 In Solo: A Star Wars Story, the newest installment in the Star Wars series, Han experiments with a new jacket style again. This time, he opts for a brown jacket that makes perfect fashion sense for the young smuggler.
“You know, sometimes I amaze even myself.”
THE IRON MAN JACKET:
Iron Man is probably one of the biggest and most-loved film franchises in history, right up there with the likes of Harry Potter and Star Wars. And Tony Stark is perhaps the epitome of cool. You can be as cool as him with this motorcycle jacket. This is from the first Iron Man movie but Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.) has stayed pretty consistent with his jacket styles not just in the Iron Man series but also in other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) productions like Captain America: Civil War. So, if you are looking for branded jackets for men, then this original classic from Iron Man could be a good addition to your winter wardrobe.
“Sometimes you gotta run before you can walk.”
THE SHEEPSKIN COAT (BANE IN THE DARK KNIGHT):
Bane (played by Tom Hardy) is one of the most frightening movie villains because of the following reasons. He is a threat both physically and intellectually. He has got tremendous speed and ferocity in a physical confrontation. He is the only one who has ever gotten the better of Batman in hand-to-hand combat. Apart from being a menacing fighter, he is also very good at getting inside his opponents’ head and messing with their psyche. This sheepskin winter coat is what Bane wore when delivering that speech against Gotham D.A Harvey Dent on the steps of City Hall in Gotham City. It is a nice item that will keep you warm all through the winters. If you are looking for a nice blazer for men to keep the cold at bay, then this winter coat worn by Bane might be a good choice.
“You think darkness is your ally. You’ve merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was a man and by then it was only blinding.”
These were some of the most popular movie jackets of all time. Do not hesitate to check them out in a store near you as well as online. You might just find something that suits your style perfectly.
