I would totally wear the Gucci pair, black or brown.

This is definitelly a look that requires a lot of confidence, or being completely oblivious to staring.

i think theres a few things that factor wen deciding to wear these:

1) confidence level
2) how the pants are styled, (i like dolce&gabbana the best)
3) where you live

i honestly would just wear the dolce&gabbana ones, but the other ones, i would get serious stares. South Carolina isn't really known for it's fashion outwardness...nor education lol. but that's another topic.

I'm just scared that if I wear leather pants, people will say I'm a skinhead or something. But mcnuwave is right about the way it styled.

I would definitely wear them depending on the cut. Gucci's are really good!

My brother has been wearing them for ages and he's really the type for it.
I'm not a fan of the oversized-ones

Me either, but the Dolce & Gabbana ones do seem quite warm!

In the real world, it is a better bet to go a little oversized for the non model male. I'm not talking urban baggy, but some decent breathing room.



I think I've worn leather pants away from the motorcycle less than 5 times, if that. I'm confident enough I just don't like dealing with all the midwest BS.

Putting aside for the moment the question of who can really wear these (rock stars and motorcyclists) without looking sleazy or clueless, I will say I really like the Gucci ones (black or brown) and would wear them onstage , I like the Fendi ones but could never wear them myself as they are too flashy, and I admire the cropped Galliano ones; the rest I find hideous. Especially the Dolce & Gabbana.
