In the Look of the week this time we've found inspiration in one of the style icons of our time: Mr Marlon Brando. But we've put our own spin on it.

It doesn't have to be hard to look good. Sometimes all you need is a bad ass leather jacket, a well-fitted t-shirt, a pair of dressed trousers and well-polished shoes. Simple as that and now you're ready to take over the streets.
The jackets of jackets. Few pieces of clothing has the same attitude and aplomb as a leather jacket. The leather jacket has that magical effect on who ever is wearing it of making the person cooler than ever. Combined with a pair of sunglasses and you're automatically more badass than everyone around you. This week we've let the leather jacket stand in limelight and speak for itself. We've been inspired by the icon and legend himself, Mr Marlon Brando, and by accident the leather jacket we've chosed is the "one". Marlon Brando wore this, well not this jacket but this model, the Perfecto motorcycle jacket from Schott in the movie "The Wild One" and it made him, his character Johnny Strabler in the movie and the jacket legendary. Like Brando did, we've wanted to keep things simple and a well-fitted white t-shirt is perfect underneath. The Swedish brand Filippa K is probably the number one in the t-shirt game right now. Their t-shirts fits great and the quality is everything you can ask for. How you like to wear it, tucked in or not, is up to you but we really like it tucked in.
Brando wore his jacket with a pair of jeans, boots and some sort of beret. We on the other hand want to move away from the tough and raw biker look and, the jacket itself does that for you so you don't have to go all out on the biker theme. Instead we would wear the jacket with a pair of dressed and slim trousers and a pair of double monkstraps to give a dressed-up contrast to the raw biker jacket.
