Garment is back and this time around, it is better than ever (if we do say so ourselves). No but really, it’s really good, go check it out. 
An annual publication created by us, AMFI students. For 21 years, we have been doing a deepdive into a garment of choice; taking it to pieces, praising and reading it to filth, all at the same time. And this year is no exception. 
The 21st issue focuses on the leather jacket. Serving as a mirror for us – the Gen Z and a part of millennials going through their almost mid-life crisis; we explore how the leather jacket’s connotations to longevity and authenticity can help us in search of our own identity. 
In the era of POVs and cores, trends that change weekly, doom scrolling, financial instability - or any instability for that matter, and James Charles still having a platform and apparently now a singing career, too (what a time to be alive), sometimes, JUST SOMETIMES, we find it a bit difficult to pin down who the fuck we really are. 
Both as individuals but also as a generation. 


The Leather Jacket
Tbfh, other garments could never. The leather jacket has been around, and in the words of Wendy Williams (RIP queen): She's got a point, she's an icon, she's a legend and she is the moment, now come on now. And rightfully so! From gays and bikers, to Black Panthers, she’s seen it all. 
And while we could go all the way back and look for the importance of leather in ancient cultures, in the modern day era, a leather jacket is just that perfect combination of looks and function. It is a shining beacon of hope for... oh, I don't know... let's say a young boy growing up in Rhode Island with six brothers, pretending to go to soccer practice when he was really going to sewing class and reading Runway under the covers at night with a flashlight.
No but for reals, it’s that idea of long-lasting authenticity, craftsmanship and hopes for a better future for us.
Cores and trends come and go, but the leather jacket prevails.
