Things to Consider When Choosing Leather Pants
Are you looking to buy a new pair of leather pants? Whether it’s your first pair or tenth, there’s no denying the fact that leather pants offer a unique style. You can differentiate yourself from the crowd and sport a fresh new appearance by wearing leather pants. They combine the benefits of leather with traditional trousers to offer a truly one-of-a-kind look. However, there are a few things you should consider when choosing leather pants.
One of the first things to consider when choosing leather pants is the cut. Just like jeans are available in different cuts, so are leather pants. Straight-leg, for instance, is a type of cut that’s characterized by a narrow run through the leg that doesn’t open or otherwise become wider towards the bottom. Straight-leg leather pants are great for elongating your body to create the appearance of a slimmer and more narrow figure. Boot-cut, on the other hand, becomes wider around the bottom, allowing you to wear the pants over your boots (or shoes). Other common types of cuts in which leather pants are made include relaxed fit, loose fit, skinny leg, low rise, high rise and loose fit.
In addition to the cut, you should also consider the type of leather the pants are made of. Just because two styles of pants are made with leather doesn’t necessarily mean they are of equal quality. Some companies use cheap low-grade leather to make their pants, resulting in an equally cheap product. Ideally, you should stick with pants made of 100% genuine leather, such as those offered here at LeatherCult. We use only the finest leather materials in our products, allowing you to get a better bang for your buck. Some of our products are even made with PURE Napa Sheepskin Leather — something you won’t find at other stores.
There are also leather pants made of fake or faux leather (though I wouldn’t necessarily call them ‘leather’). It’s best to avoid these pants, as they lack the attractive qualities of the real deal. Granted, faux leather pants usually cost less, but this is one instance in which the saying “You get what you pay for” holds true. Stick with genuine leather pants and avoid the faux/fake styles.
Buttons and Zippers
Do the leather pants feature a buttons and zipper? If so, where exactly are they located? These are questions you should have answered before investing in a new pair of leather pants. Some people prefer all buttons on the fly, while others prefer a zipper-and-button combination. Regardless of which style you prefer, chances are there’s a pair of leather pants out there featuring it. Decide which button and zipper configuration you prefer before you begin shopping. Click here…
