I love leathers in RL and when I saw found tiny vendor pics with this leather jacket and pants, which I had to zoom right into in order to see what it was like, I jumped with excitement. Even with the small sized pics, I could see that these were really cool and I just had to buy them. Well being from Japanese stores where prices in general tend to be much lower than other parts of SL, I wasn't too worried about the price. They were conveniently sold separately so anybody who doesn't want a whole suit but wants a cool leather jacket can just purchase the jacket without the pants. Or if you want a cool leather pants, you can buy it without the jacket.
The white pattern on black leather in this set was absolutely something I could die for. I might be a bit shy to wear this in RL but hey, this is SL! I might as well enjoy this awesome design. The leather texture was really realistic too and the jacket had shirrings on the side so that the jacket would have a nice fit while still being comfortable to move in.
For boots, I wore these flat biker boots from Drawmachine. I know many people will wear heels but in my mind, a pair of leather pants that are made as stylish pants can be worn with heels but if they look like biker type pants, flat boots look a lot more cool. Of course in RL, leathers make a lot more sense in terms of safety when riding bikes. Jeans can rip to pieces in just a fall, let alone an accident and when you do wear leathers for bikes, you would be choosing flat boots. So I feel it's also a lot more realistic and makes a lot more sense, aside from the aesthetic reason.
Cold winter should be ending soon and I can't wait for spring when bike rides will be at it's best!
