History Leather Pants Fashion

Leather pants have been a staple to style for centuries. Leather is one of the first materials that humans learned to use to cloth and protect themselves from the elements including the cold, and the sun. European settlers in the Americas adopted the trend of wearing leather pants from native Americans, and leather pants for men became common in society in the late 19th century. Leather chaps were popular to wear over trousers to protect horseback riders traveling long distances. Leather trousers became known as the clothing of peasants because of the rugged look and little need for washing. Since the 1950s however black leather pants have exploded onto the high fashion scene and the culture around leather pants has changed. Now, leather outfits are iconic with musicians, bondage, and a hedonistic lifestyle that rebels against the mainstream popular culture; as well as celebrity royalty and fashionistas from around the world.

Some people throughout history who have made leather pants for men popular include Elvis Presley, James Dean, and Marlon Brando.
