So I mentioned in some previous posts how I absolutely love leather. And I knew leather would hit the scene hard this Fall. This particular pair is definitely one of my favorites of the many leather pants out on the market currently. These are Rag & Bone/JEAN RBW 23 Leather Pants.
This season, it will be difficult to avoid leather, as designers have sent a slew of leather pieces down the runway, whether they were slim, baggy, cropped, or studded. What I particularly love about this pair is that you don’t need to be edgy or even much of a fashion risk taker to pull them off. They are gorgeous. And although I typically prefer my leather pants to fit more snug, these aren’t super skin tight. Made of 100% lamb leather, they fit like skinnies without looking painted on. In fact, I’d say they probably run almost a size large because of the loose fit and how they stretch some after a little wear.
The inseam is 28 inches, which look really nice cropped if you are blessed with super long legs. (Karlie Kloss was seen in these and is a perfect example!). The rise is 7 ½ inches with a 10 inch leg opening. The outer leg has side zippers that are 8 inches long. The front is aligned with double zipper pockets on the right and a single zipper pocket on the left. And I love that the zippers are all rose gold, which stands out nicely along the black color leather.
The wash is called Black leather, which have a worn look to the color. And because of the vintage look to the material, they feel almost like suede rather than smooth leather. The leather is super soft never the less.
The only downfall to these pants is the price. They’re on the pricier side, which you’d expect from good quality leather pants. These will, however, last you many seasons to come. Leather pants aren’t a one season kind of trend, so that makes spending the money on some nice ones a little more acceptable.
Washing instructions are: dry clean only.
