This is our new favorite leather pants silhouette for right now! (And, I think for a long time to come.)
Our favorite leather pants are high waisted, body skimming, tapered and ankle cropped & great to cuff! Not too tight, not too loose, but JUST RIGHT!
These two pair were made for a client who fell in love with this beautiful and light weight, washed finish lambskin- first in black and then in a beautiful warm brown.
The skins have a soft glossy finish – not as shiny as the photos of the brown pair appear – lighting does that to leather – it’s hard to avoid & no light, details get lost. The brown leather skin shown in natural light is the true finish.
We can’t always source this leather – though for the moment our vendor has it in stock, in a good range of colors. One of my favorites is a deep burgundy/raspberry shade- that is to die for! No worries, there are aways new and beautiful leathers to explore which is one of the things I love about doing this – not being limited to working with a basic range of colors and standard finishes.
Lightweight leathers aren’t always suitable for pants, they can be prone to stretching and sometimes just a little delicate. These washed skins, in spite of their light weight, have a very good body and a tight fiber structure.
Not only that, but our client has worn them about everyday (favorite!) since she got them and they have broken in gorgeously. They are light enough that she will be able to wear then through several NYC seasons as well as summer SF nights. A big plus is that they can be styled as every day casual, professional creative and for a night out on the town!
When you get more than one piece made for the same pattern (minor changes are ok – here we changed pocket design and waistband style) & your 2nd piece does not need a new pattern or muslins – the price on your second (or third pair) reflects this. Same with all our custom work.
