How to Wear Men’s Leather Pants + 3 of Our Favorite gothic Pairs


For men, leather pants have emerged as 2022’s “it” item. Here’s how to wear men's gothic pants successfully, and our recommendations.

In 2022, leather pants will supplant motorcycle jackets and tall oxfords as the must-have menswear item.

Do you still have any reservations about us? Men may not be seen in polished leather trousers at the supermarket, but the trend has been boiling beneath the surface – owing to a resurgent interest in western wear and motocross – and has been observed on the runways in various versions. Rick Owens' "Why not?" leather puff-sleeve jackets, which looked like something Lady Gaga may have worn during her "Bad Romance" phase, were debuted in 2019, so slim to regular-cut pants aren't a stretch.

Men's leather pants were a highlight of Fashion Week presentations in 2020, despite their unusual absence from our daily lives. They were observed at high-end companies such as Celine, AMI, Hermes, Lanvin, Loewe, and Versace. Luxury streetwear labels such as AMIRI and Fear of God experimented with them at the same time, hinting that they will be widely accepted shortly.

Leather is an unusual material in that it is both practical and laced with a sense of the forbidden. It shows a cowboy suited for the weather and his long trek on the plains, as well as motorbike riders wearing protective gear to avoid road rash and more serious injuries. At the same time, gothic trousers are more than just a pair of leather pants.

It shows a cowboy suited for the weather and his long trek on the plains, as well as motorbike riders wearing protective gear to avoid road rash and more serious injuries. At the same time, gothic trousers, rather than a leather jacket, appear to be inspired by or borrowed from the 1970s film Cruising. As a result, anything leather other than an overshirt tends to be avoided.

Still, red carpet trends can make something complicated or too out of social bounds become more accessible. Indicating the average man could try out leather trousers, they’ve been spotted on Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Rami Malek, Timothée Chalamet, Jeff Goldblum, and Joe Jonas, to name a few.

So, if you’re contemplating this trend but aren’t sure about how to start, begin with the following tips:
