How to Wear: Leather Pants (See Jane Wear Over and Over)

I decided early last fall that my wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without leather pants.  I didn’t want to go cheap on them either; I never found a “pleather” version that looked good and the less expensive real leather versions weren’t up to my standards in terms of fit (i.e. Zara, H&M, etc).  While I wasn’t willing to cut corners on the perfect pair, I also wasn’t about to cough up nearly a thousand dollars for the pants, either.  I ended up with the perfect pair–the Theory leather leggings which I bought for 30% during a friends and family sale (no tax and free shipping, too!).  Eric joked that this would ultimately end up a piece at the back of my closet–worn a few times, never to see the light of day again.  When I ended up wearing them well into April, he took back his words and realized I got the most cost per wear possible on these babies.  My advice: if you’re on the fence about leather pants, take the plunge!  You will wear them non-stop in the winter and again the next year.  I’m living proof (and I most recently wore them here and last year here, here, here and here).

My favorite versions out there (most on sale!) are:


  1. I really want a pair too. They look great on you. I am still not sure I can pull them off. I went to H&M to get a practice pair, but they looked so cheap that I couldn't do. I will have to watch the Saks sale and see if they pop up on the Theory rack.

  2. I buy a pair of cheap pleather ones every year and they sit in the back of my closet (with tags) until spring, when I inevitably give them away.

    When I move out of California, I am gettin' the real deal! In the meanwhile, I'll live vicariously through your darling leather-filled outfits.

  3. Love all the ways your styled the pants especially the last picture. Do not you love when you buy something thinking you might not wear them that often and then it becomes one of your favorite pieces!

  4. I just brought my first pair after I seeing how you styled yours!! I'm so excited! Love your site!

    I love some of the photos where I can spot little glimpse of Chicago. (I miss that city soooo much)

  5. I've been stuck on the inexpensive versus way-too-expensive dilemma for months now. I'll have to keep my eye on those Theory leggings, because the less expensive versions never seem to look right on me!

  6. This is meant to guide men to decide what men's Leather trousers can and cannot be worn for varying occasions like job interviews, exhibition openings and more. It is meant to stop men from making major fashion delinquencies, and causing themselves discomfort. Chinos- Chinos are a comfortable style of leather trousers that are amazingly multipurpose.
