From Ryan Gosling's jacket in Drive, through to Homer Simpson's Mr Plow: we salute pop culture jackets, and find out how much they cost...

Clothes are important. How you choose to dress your characters, or indeed yourself, can convey so much to the audience. You can explain entire parts of their background or their motivations wordlessly, with just a well chosen garment. Or sometimes, you can just give them a giant scorpion on their back because it looks awesome. Here then, is a list of the coolest jackets in movies, TV, games and comics (Note: Marty McFly wears a gilet, not a jacket, hence his non-appearance).
