Leather clothing has always been associated with rebellion and despite its continued rise in popularity, men wearing leather out on the street as part of their everyday clothing, have always stood out from the crowd.
Street leather is defined as items of leather clothing that are worn as part of a leatherman’s identity rather than due to necessity or fashion. Street leather guys will wear a well worn leather jacket that has seen action and has moulded to its wearer’s form. They’ll wear boots that promote confidence and stature. They may sport a wristband to highlight their need to wear leather close to the skin. Accessories such as a leather cap or gloves may complete the outfit.
Street leather reflects an edgy and urban style that lies between casual and fashion. It promotes a quite, but confident sexual air.
