SlamXStyle: Here’s The Best All-Leather Outfit In The History Of The Earth
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.
