Staying Single: A Lesson in Layering Leather

March 14, 2011

Though daylight losings time has come and gone, the cold weather doesn’t seem to be letting go. Raise your hand if this has been the most obnoxious winter to fuck with your immune system?

Because of inclement weather conditions, shivering bones, and things like pneumonia, I thought I’d post one last winter-friendly layering story before I start preaching the art of layering your underwear. No really. I layered underwear last night. It was fun.

On today’s roster: leather, leather and more pleather! One is often prone to associate leather with Cat Woman, Angelina Jolie and sexual vixens of that sort. This is where I come in so below you will find a fantastic series of photos that will demonstrate the art of castration sans-torture instrument, plus fabric. 

t shirt: Club Monaco, leather pants: Topshop, loafers: Stubbs and Wootton
Phase 1: While this is as standard an outfit as any, I have a leather fupa and for that, I deserve an award.
shorts: Club Monaco
Phase 2: leather shorts over leather pants, by golly, why did it take me until the end of February to think this one up?
skirt: Zara
Phase 3: The use of those shorts obviously sparked a brilliant idea: make it a skort night.
…See what I mean? See what I mean? Leather party in, on and around my pants.
vest: WGACA
Phase 4: Add a leather vest. Here’s to motorcyclists without motorcycles.
jacket: Veda
Phase 5: Leather jacket. This is saucy.
birth control glasses: Warby Parker, booties: Proenza Schouler
Phase 6: Finishing touches to nip his tip. Clear frames–non-prescription, of course–leather booties and ta da, not an ounce of flesh in sight. Let’s hereby dub this,“Matrix chic” and sing a song of collective solidarity that goes a bit like this: L-L-L-Leather is Forever.

    you are wearing, like, about 3.5 cows and that's the best thing ever. best of all, apart from the likelihood of *creaking* as you walk/prance/skip with joy at your own genius in creating this outfit, you could do cartwheel upon cartwheel and worry NOT about flashing your foof in any way at all, even if you tried. bravo vagina hider, bravo. xx

What I wouldn't do for that outfit? *Thinking* I don't know if I agree with you though as it being man repelling…If you were to visit say ComiCon,(or any number of *cons*), I think you would have a nights worth of empty condom packages at your feet.

  • http://huntgatherfashion.com/ HuntGatherFashion

    I almost thought you were going to go "surprise DIY!" with the skort thing. Like, actually whip out a mammoth pair of scissors and cut that skirt shorter than the shorts to gain a more "skortish" effect. It's an idea. You can put it in the bank for future manrepeller if you dig it.

    Bravo for not fainting in any of these photos. All that leather would suffocate me. BTW if a guy did pursue a man repeller wearing this I'm pretty sure the near impossible feat of removing all this leather after a night out would deflate his sail and send him on his own walk of shame.

    Ugh now the only reason I wouldn't be able to stand this is because I would probably sweat like crazy and then my ass cheeks would stick together and that would just not be fun…it wouldn't be just man repelling it would be people repelling and mind repelling at that point. Who wants to be the girl with sweaty ass cheeks? Not me.

  • Catalina

    While I do think you are QUITE INSANE, I just went ahead and tried this mad idea of yours. To make the layers more apparent I alternated with black and white: black leather skirt, white t-shirt sticking under a black leather t-shirt and white leather jacket. Black and silver leather boots to top it off. Man, I can't believe how much I like this concoction! THANKS!
    My boyfriend will be terrified with this "minimalistic" look that I will call: Martin Margiela goes to space.

    Motorcycle jackets are always in style – for those who drive motorcycles and others. Ever wonder why? Is it because the leather jackets motorcycle is simply too big? Think about it. Motorcycle jackets are available in a wide range of simple nylon materials, including Kevlar. However, the leather retains its position as the best market niche. Of course, buying a motorcycle is a great thing, but so is the purchase of a jacket style motorcycle to go with it. A biker jacket is much more than a matter of style. A classic motorcycle jacket is not only an affirmation of the individuality of the user, but also provides security and protection against the elements and proposes the strengthening of vital importance to the organism in the case of an accident.
