Black Leather

Let's solve this once and for all. Did The Matrix really make the black leather overcoat popular, or not? Was Blade responsible for the comic book movie boom, or can that be traced back to Burton's Batman? Or is the proper answer X-Men, as that was an ensemble with codenames and weird powers, properly comicbooky? Or can all the black leather obsession be traced back to The Crow? Or could the argument be made that Terminator 2 brought the black leather into the mainstream, the Grunge culture in general carried it, the Crow brought Urban Gothic to the mainstream, whereas as The Matrix was a true revolution in the Y2K style of the future, and the FoX-Men were the first proper capekino franchise?

    You're going to have to back a bit further than the late 90's to find what made black leather popular

    The Matrix was the coolest shit ever, but that fashion could never penetrate into real life without being cringe. It probably had the connotation of the Colombine shooters also.
    Just like Hitler ruined the moustache and haircut for everyone that came after him, The Colombine shooters ruined trenchcoats for everyone that came after. Except the Adolf haircut and stache objectively looked like shit and the trenchcoats are Cinemaphile as frick.

    I think in movies, it started in Asian cinema. I forgot the name of the director. It's not John Woo is it?

        Yeah, I know. I meant it's one of the reasons trench coats were like a nono. Because you'd be an edgelord by association.

          Ok, but you are clearly wrong since they got popularized in the media by the matrix after columbine happened.

            The fricking point is nobody wore these things in real life.

              Moreso because of its long standing association with sexual fetishes like the S&M bondage and queer scenes than columbine.

                It's possible. I think it's just the nature of the trenchcoat itself. It's pretty extreme as it is. I love the look of it, but I associate it with city people or war, outside of that, it looks impractical to wear. I can't wear it, since I'm a 1m70 imp, but it looks good on tall men and gives them a statuesque quality. Picrel is like an idealized version.

                >trenchcoat ... I associate it with city people or war
                Most people associate regular trenchcoats with that fat bald guy who is only wearing a trenchcoat and is just about to flash his wiener.

                Kek, forgot about the pencil vendor. Picrel was one of the most legendary trenchcoats in television history, he had more shit in there than inspector Gadget.

    >traced back to Burton's Batman?
    That can be traced back to Donner's Superman which could only be possible because the Batman tv show was so popular and spawned multiple tv movies.

    Leather was popular among bikers, prowrestlers, gays, and counterculture types as long as television has existed.

    I think it can be traced back to Richard Donner's Superman.

      That never would have gotten made if the Batman tv show and movies from the 60s and 70s weren't so popular.
