Best Men's Leather Pants

Liam, a soldier, sports enthusiast, motorcycle biker and a huge fan of leather. I love to travel, write about my travels and my life.


Are Leather Pants for Everyone?

If you ask me, I would say yes, immediately. But on the other hand, it is true, that leather pants look good just on a certain type of people. For example do not ever buy skin tight leather jeans, if you are not skinny or if you are big boned. That just does not look right, I hope you do not resent me saying this, but I am just trying to be honest with you.

It seems that today all celebrities are wearing leather pants, actors, singers, even athletes. Just think of Ryan Lochte, the popular swimmer from USA. He even started his own leather clothing line. I think everyone should have at least one pair of leather pants, but it is up to you to decide, if you want skin tight, regular or maybe sweatpants leather pants.


My favourite pair of Men's Leather Pants

Men's Black Steerhide Leather Jeans are extremely popular men's leather jeans which are available in black and red and in all possible sizes. Classical men's leather jeans made in the good old USA. Perfectly lined and styled with a perfect inseam and a raw edge bottom for a customized length.

This men's leather pants are perfect for riding a motorcycle or simply going out on the town, visiting a concert or just going to the local pub for a beer with your friends.

Actors, Musicians, Athletes ... They All Love Leather Pants

It seems everyone is wearing leather pants these days. Leather pants are not anymore merely in the domain of gay people - as many still believe - but are a popular choice of famous men, such as actors, musicians and athletes. If you just think of Adam Levine, Ryan Lochte, Justin Theroux, Matthew McConaughey - they have been seen wearing leather pants on numerous occasions, either on talk show or riding their motorcycles. Needless to say, such opportunities when famous men are seen wearing leather pants only contribute to the increase in popularity of leather and leather pants.

Even athletes, many would think, they would never get caught wearing leather pants, are wearing leather pants more and more often. Leather is a popular choice mostly among basketball players, moto gp riders and even skiers and snowboarders. As I said, nowadays everyone is wearing leather!

Why I adore Leather Pants

I have started noticing my affection towards leather and leather pants during my teenage years, I think I was about 15 or 16. But I got my first leather pants aged 18, after I started college, it was a kind of a reward and fulfilment of my wish to get a pair. The first pair I got were almost skin tight black leather pants, yes I was real skinny back then.

Then I got another pair of leather pants aged 22 or 23, when I got my first bike. They were pressed black biker leather pants with laces. Super cool. And I loved wearing them, not only when riding my bike but also first when I went out for a concert, later on even when I met up with friends for a drink in the evening. At first they kind of looked at me funny, later they even asked me why I hadn't worn leather pants if I came for a drink in my jeans.

I love leather pants because of the way they make me feel, I love feeling the soft leather on my thighs and not only that, they offer great protection when riding a bike and are also a must have if I decide to visit a rock concert. And I must tell you, I got my fair share of looks, from both genders, if I may say so.

Why are Leather Pants a Must Have of the Season for Men?

It seems leather has really grown on its popularity over the last couple of years. It was extremely popular during the 80s and the 90s of the previous century, not so much in the first decade of the new millenium, but now it is just one of the most wanted and popular must haves of every season.

Nowadays it seems that almost every other guy has at least one pair of leather pants, whether they be real leather pants, faux leather pants or leather tracksuit pants. Yes, you read it right, they also exist. Just think of Kanye West parading around in his leather sweatpants. But I guess it is up to you to decide whether that is sexy and cool or not.

Leather pants give a man somewhat more edge to his appearance, as well as seem to boost his confidence. It is this above mentioned "edge" that raises the appeal of bikers or rocker, pop stars in leather, not only to women, but also to men. And what the hell, if one has a great body, why wouldn't he, or she for that matter, enjoy showing how good he/she looks in tight black leather pants that really bring out your ***.

Why am I embarrassed to wear leather pants outside?

Many people, myself included (in the past), feel or have felt embarrassed wearing leather pants outside. Why? It's simple, because of the society and how people perceive guys wearing leather pants. I guess we have all felt odd looks of passers-by sometimes when we stepped outside and walked the street with the tightest pair of black leather pants while heading for a drink with friends.

I believe that none of us should feel embarrassed putting on what we like and stepping outside in our favourite leather and simply enjoy life to the fullest extent. If we feel great in leather, don't let anyone prevent us from wearing it every day all day long - if we wish. So, be confident in who you are and what you were and show off to the world how good you look in leather!

Men in Leather Pants


Most popular leather pants are tight black leather jeans, which on the one hand allow your body to breathe, while on the other you look supersexy wearing tight jeans, which are black and shiny all at once.

In my opinion men's leather jeans must be perfectly fitted, which means that they should not be too tight, because your body still has to breathe and you should not over-sweat in them, while on the other hand they should be fitted in the manner to emphasize your shape and body. I love my pants black, shiny...especially shining really in the sun.

The bottom line is - if you feel comfortable in tight or baggy leather pants - just wear them. If you prefer tight leather pants, wear them, if you prefer more baggy, sweatpants made out of leather, wear them while going for a walk or a jog. Don't care what others think, simply wear what you like and love. And wear them as much as possible, because I think we should all strive towards getting more guys to wear leather pants more often.

Are Leather Pants Really For Me?

If you have asked yourself this question ever before, then you must have been thinking of putting on some leather pants at least once. And this only speaks to you thinking about and wanting to wear leather pants, but you are probably worried about what others might think seeing you wearing tight shiny pants on the streets. My answer would be - just don't be! Don't care what others may or may not think, be confident and wear what you want and like.

I wore my first leather pants when I was 16 or maybe 17 to a rock concert. I actually bought them 2 years prior to that but was "afraid" of wearing them outside. For the same reason i mentioned above. But when I first put them on to go out in public to that concert, it felt freeing and the praise I got for wearing them gave me that extra confidence to start wearing leather more often. Since that moment I never looked back and continue to wear leather as much as I can and want!

Hey Liam,

Just read your write up, enjoyed it...

I own a lot of leather, from head to toe

(street & personal attire) & then some.

Can you share, some of the best online retailers you’ve purchased your leather from? I’m always on the hunt for online leather business. I prefer having form fitting leather pieces custom made. I’m looking for quality, variety of leather attire for sale & reasonable pricing.

Thanks much guy
