If I was to develop a hierarchy of fabrics, measured of course by the frequency with which they appear on my body, a quick guesstimate would land leather at number three; right behind denim and plaid. It’s one of those things that I tend to do less in bulk and more so in the details of a manfit (Outfit for men. (Do I need to keep doing this?)).
From the top down we see the first hint of leather in my hat, albeit not visible in the prior photo it very much exists. There’s a rather peculiar place in Toronto called Honest Ed’s. It’s essentially a giant two-block discount store and it happens to be the birth place of this guy. Although, I stole it from my man-friend who was gifted it by my old roommate, I think (if not, sorry Shannon, I/we stole your hat.). Some might say hand-me-down, I prefer the exchange of a quality good.
You may recognize this American Apparel coin murse from such hits as Wittle Weather Wawwet. He/she is back and making a cameo in what could be consider a prequel-seqeual to Wittle Weather Wawwt, Leather Details. This time around we see him/her in they’re natural habit, the ass pocket.
Also of American Apparel descent is this Casio timekeeper or “watch” as they sometimes call it. Truth be told this watch does less time keeping and more looking fine since it’s run in with the gym floor (Humblebrag-I go to the gym. Or at least went. Once.). Who needs time, anyhow. It’s just something society created to make us feel shitty about missing birthdays and anniversaries.
Last, but certainly not feet, are these vintage woven leather Wranglers courtesy of Elsie’s here in the great city of Haligonia.
And there you have it. A trip through my manfit via details of the leather variety. We take in so much bulk stimuli these days that the little things often go unnoticed. So, I’m dedicating this post to the sartorial minorities. To the details!
