It takes one superstar to make a song linger on people’s lives for a lifetime, but it takes one legend to impact his or her followers in a way that they want to follow their footsteps to the point of wanting to even dress like this person who they admire.

Fortunately, many leather apparel stores have made available their own takes on the leather jackets that made the king of pop famous back in the day.
