Leather is so “back” these days that it’s almost idiotic to point it out. But the tricky part of wear the trend is how you do it without looking like a heavy metal-wearing motorcycle enthusiast of Theophilus London when he’s drunk.
Enter SlamXStyle’s all-leather-everything edition, a curated outfit for the anti-vegtarian featuring a full battery of goods to get you looking, but hopefully not smelling, like one of Ron Burgundy’s leather-bound books.
Alexander McQueen Black Leather Slit Biker Trousers
Start with a pair of buffed leather biker pants from Alexander McQueen. Honestly, it may seem wild to pay $4625 for trousers that seem to have ripped bottoms, but if you have to ask why, you just don’t understand menswear.
Get them off SSENSE’s webstore.
En Noir X Buscemi 120MMs for Barneys New York
Below the McQueen bikers should sit En Noir X Buscemi‘s 120MM sneakers. The menswear Internets have been blowing up since they dropped last Thursday, and for good reason: they’re the perfect combination of alligator prints, vidvim-style ankle flaps, and gothic padlock decoration.
Pre-order them for $975 off Barneys NYC.
Saint Laurent Multi-Zip Motorcycle Jacket In Black and White Ivory Leather
Companies like Schott and Belstaff have owned the motorcycle jacket game for a long time, but when it comes to the high end, leather pieces that the fashion scenesters in NYC are rocking, Saint Laurent does it right. Their Multi-Zip, Black and White leather biker is a killer way to stray from the all-black-everything leather trail.
Go to Saint Laurent’s webstore to get one off the $10,090.
Stampd White Velcro Lambskin Snapback
Play off the white of your Saint Laurent jacket with a lambskin snapback that’s decorated with a detachable velcro strip on the front panel from Stampd.
Each is $115 on the LA imprint’s webstore.
En Noir Pintuck T-Shirt
Leather shirts are always a little dicey: if the weather’s two hot, sweating becomes a nightmare. If the weather’s too cold, chaffing is inevitable. But again, fashion isn’t about logic. So, get a good undershirt ready and layer up with the pintuck extra-long leather T-Shirt from En Noir.
Patron Of The New has them for $1125 on their webstore.
Alexander McQueen Elaphe And leather Belt
Complete the all-leather-everything outfit with a contract belt, again from Alexander McQueen. The Italian-made Elaphe — that’s rat snake skin — piece is another bold way to add a splash of white against the deep ebony of black leather.
Each one goes for $595 on Mr. Porter’s webstore.
