Most of you are here because two guys with a mutual love of shiny clothes is has piqued your interest – that’s pretty obvious. But what is your fetish? We’d love to know.
Personally I’ve got black jeans in latex (left), PVC (middle) and leather (right). Each has it’s own benefits and flaws – latex is reasonably comfortable but does not breathe at all and so is totally unsuitable for this really hot weather we’re experiencing at the moment.
PVC is slightly more breathable but has the major flaw that it’s quite noisy to wear.
Leather on the other hand is very easy to wear, but doesn’t have the shine of PVC or latex.
From being a really young kid I was always interested in shiny fabrics and materials. Leather particularly fascinated me and as a young teen I aspired to own a pair of leather trousers.
My parents didn’t have much money and so buying such an item was both brochure prohibitively expensive; and as my mum always said “silly” because I was growing very quickly and an expensive pair of leathers would soon no longer fit me.
She was right.
Skip on a few years and I started earning my own salary. I was also fully grown (apart from the obvious weight issues I carried for a number of years, and to an extent still carry) and I finally got myself into some leather. Latex and PVC both came much later, but since my late teens I’ve been wearing leather; and in public I can date exactly when I came out as a leather wearer.
