Tokyo’s White Raven brings us these busy beasts—a pair of biker jackets inspired by Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront (though based on the Brando pic they sent us, they might be thinking of his character in The Wild One). The connection is not on the surface of things, it would seem, but there is something about the blazing insanity of the product that breaks bread with Brando’s raging id.

“Designers Ben Mori and Hiroto Toyoda, using the ‘Intrecciato’  weaving technique, bring a fine reworking and sartorial juxtaposition on such a iconic jacket,” we are told. “Fashioned in cotton jersey and given a further twist with the use of Black Watch tartan and a bold red and royal blue preppy check.” We suspect that either jacket could take over your life in a mere matter of hours.
