Why Men Should Never Wear Leather Pants: The Fashion Nightmare That Is Leather Pants

Leather pants. Just the sound of the words makes most men shudder. Why? Because leather pants are a fashion nightmare that should never see the light of day.

I don’t know why leather pants became a thing, but they need to stop. They’re uncomfortable, make you look like you’re trying too hard, and worst of all, they aren’t flattering on 99% of men. If you think leather pants make you look cool, I’m sorry you’re wrong.

Wearing leather pants is the fashion equivalent of getting a spray tan: it’s a desperate attempt to look good that usually ends up making you look ridiculous.

Do you really think that this looks good?

This one time, I saw a guy wearing leather pants, and I couldn’t take my eyes off him. It was like a car accident; I couldn’t look away even though I knew I should. The guy looked like he was trying to be sexy, but the only thing he succeeded in doing was looking ridiculous. Leather pants are not a good look for men.

They’re tight, uncomfortable, and make you look like you’re trying too hard to be sexy. If you want to attract women, don’t wear leather pants. Trust me on this one. Wearing leather pants is the surest way to repel women and make yourself look fooled. So please, for the sake of fashion, don’t wear leather pants. It’s just not worth it.

The only time it makes sense to wear them is if you’re a motorcyclist or a rock star, and even then, it’s debatable. So unless you’re in a motorcycle gang and can pair them with a classic leather moto jacket, or you’re in a glam rock band, I suggest avoiding leather pants altogether.

What do you think? Are leather pants a fashion don’t, or do you think a man can wear them and still look stylish? Let me know in the comments below. I’m always curious to hear what other people say about fashion. Thanks for reading! Until next time, stay stylish!
