Marlon Brando: The Wild One

Motorcycles, rebellion, and the open road wouldn’t be the same without Marlon Brando’s “The Wild One.” Based on the Hollister Motorcycle Riots, Marlon Brando plays the leader of the rebellious bike gang the Black Rebels Motorcyle Club (what a fantastic name!). In standard rebellious fashion, he’s a rebel who plays by nobody rules -- not even his own. Although, I’m not going to lie as bad-ass as he looks, he plays his usually moody petulant self which actually makes him seem like an overgrown child throwing a tantrum in this movie. Also, let’s not forget he gets his ass handed to him by the town’s people.

On the not so badass front again, Shia LeBeouf wore the exact same outfit in Indiana Jones 4: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Last note I swear, the timeless cool of cuffed jeans, motorcycle boots, and leather is impressive. Although, you really have to be a real bad-ass to actually pull it off. Sadly, despite all my (non-existent) testosterone fueled swagger and raging muscles I'm still unable to pull this look off. Sigh, woe be me.
