If I found the right pair I'd wear the hell out of riding leather trousers when going out on my motorcycle. I just find most of them generally too low rise and with details I do not care for.
That ombré charm gets me every time
I know most of TFL doesn't care for these but just wanna share a few pics these pants that arrived yesterday.
Some time ago, I bought a pair of leather trousers on a whim only 'cause they seemed nice but I had no clue what I was in for and the price wasn't really a bargain but man, am I glad I took the risk because not only did they turn out to be some of the best leather anything I've handled but more importantly, I discovered a fantastic Germany-based maker called Stark aus Leder.
The owner of the shop is Peter who's now retired but still does work for home & I honestly can't recommend his gear enough. Just do yourself a favor and if you're looking for MC trousers, talk to the guy. He's super nice and all but most importantly, in 40 years of his career in leather craft, he specialized in leather pants & vests so well it's insane. Just another level altogether. Think Thedi of leather trousers.
@red devil visited Peter's workshop recently and can, I'm sure, only echo what I'm sayin' here.
Anyway, since his trousers don't even have a tag, best I could hope for was to visually identify a pair, once it turns up, which is what happened last week. There's this seller on eBay.de that's got millions of leather pants flowing thru and while most are junk, occasionally they'll list a gem. The first ones I got from him as well.
Kind of amusing how even tho 90% of the stuff his selling is listed insanely cheap (because it sucks), you won't see those few good pieces that don't even particularly stand out to most people, listed under 150 Eur. The seller knows what's good but that's okay I guess.
Anyway, my second Stark aus Leder trousers, this time in an obscenely cool variant with side laces which I probably won't ever even dare wearing but just having 'em around is cool. I wish I was 20 again... And thin. 'cause I was fat af at 20.
