Today we're going to talk about leather pants, whether you are in the fashion industry or you are just a simple mortal, you've seen them lately right?. Well, they are the new trend for this season, you can find them almost at every store these days and the choices are endless. If you are still undecided over if they are right for you or not, this Frequently asked questions (FAQ)'s guide will help you.
Are Leather Pants Comfortable?
Absolutely! In fact, this is one of the many reasons why they are so popular. Leather is made from animal hide, typically cow’s hide for clothes and garments but there are other types like Peccary leather which are really exotic and one of the softest leather out there. If you’ve ever felt it before (and you probably), you may have noticed just how soft and supple it feels. Leather possesses a truly one-of-a-kind texture that’s simply not found in other fabrics or materials. It’s soft, supple and super comfortable to wear. This makes it an attractive choice of fabric when used in the construction of pants.
Are Leather Pants Made for Men or Women?
You can find leather pants made for both men and women. Granted, some of them are designed specifically for men, whereas others are designed specifically for women. A pair of women’s leather pants, for instance, may feature subtle designs and elements that women prefer. Regardless of your gender, though, you can rest assured knowing there’s a pair of leather pants with your name on it. It’s up to you, however, to find them.
Can I Buy Leather Pants in Retail Stores?
Depending on where exactly you shop, you may or may not be able to find leather pants in retail stores. Some retailers carry them as part of their regular inventory. Others, however, do not carry them. So, how do you know which retail stores sell leather pants and which do not? You can scour all of the retail and department stores in your town, but this isn’t an effective solution. This is more or less like rolling the dice. You have to look for those stores that sell them but these days is more often you find them than not. If you think this is too much work then you can always find them online. ;)
What Size Do I Need?
Leather pants come in the same sizes as most other pants, featuring both a waist and length size. Traditional retail stores and department stores sell leather pants in standard sizing so, there's no problem finding your right fit. However, since they are a little tighter than jeans for example you might want to try a size up and see if they feel comfortable enough.
How Do I Clean Leather Pants?
The steps needed to clean leather pants varies depending on the type and style, but it’s usually best to spot treat stains. If you discover a stain or blemish on your leather pants, blot the affected area using a damp washcloth. You don’t want to use a completely soaked washcloth. Rather, take a lightly damp washcloth and use it to blot the affected area of your leather pants until the stain comes out. For most minor stains, this should offer a quick and easy solution. If the stain has settled, however, you may have to use a special leather cleaning product.
How to Keep Leather Pants Soft?
All leather garments and products have a tendency to become rough over time. This phenomenon is attributed to the fact that leather is constantly absorbing or releasing moisture depending on the surrounding humidity levels. When a pair of leather pants is stored in a dry area for a long period of time, the moisture content within the pants will release into the surrounding atmosphere. Over time, this can make the leather pants feel stiff and rough. The good news is that you can protect your leather pants from this phenomenon by conditioning them on a regular basis. Using a leather conditioning product , gently rub the conditioner into the leather, repeating this process once every few months. In addition to keeping your leather pants soft, this also protects them from cracking and other dryness-related damage.
What Colors Do Leather Pants Come in?
Leather is typically associated with the color brown. Being that leather is naturally brown, it should come as a little-to-no surprise to learn that most leather pants are brown. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Brown is the only color in which leather pants are made. On the contrary, you can find them in just about any color under the sun, including black, white, green, blue, yellow or red. So, feel free to experiment with some of these non-traditional colors to see what works and what doesn’t.
Is There Anything Else I Should Know?
For more detailed and specific instructions on how to clean and care for leather pants, check the care label. Typically found inside the waistband, the care label reveals the manufacturer’s recommendation on cleaning and caring for the pants. No two leather pants are made exactly the same, so the manufacturer may include specific instructions on the care label. Unfortunately, many consumers turn a blind eye to this label, treating their leather pants just like any other pair of pants or garments. And when this occurs, they may inadvertently damage their leather pants. To prevent problems such as this, you should read the care label before cleaning your leather pants. Following the advice listed here will give you peace of mind knowing that your leather pants are protected from common forms of damage.
