Every rock star seems to live in leather jackets, and we’re always wondering where they got them. For Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and The Strokes’ guitarist Nick Valensi, now we know: 3.1 Phillip Lim. Both rockers own the same brown motorcycle jacket from the designer’s fall 2010 collection (see the original runway look below). And they even wear their jackets to the same event! On August 15, Caleb performed in the outerwear at the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco, and layered his jacket over an unbuttoned, plaid shirt and white V-neck tee (though, he threw off the jacket during his set). Just one day earlier, The Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi took the stage at the same festival in the same jacket, which he wore with a black tee and jeans. The jacket itself isn’t cheap — it sells for $1,100 online at Barneys.com. And while Caleb and Nick’s jackets are a beautiful shade of brown that’s totally fall, the jacket also comes in black for another version of this classic rocker look (which is a mighty fine look, if we may say so ourselves).
+ Who looks better — Caleb or Nick?
