Skin is officially in for fall. Don't worry, boys, you don't have to bare it all. The runways were practically lined in hides. Leather, both real and of the man-made variety, came down the catwalk in droves. Neil Barrett and Prada both showed leather (and perhaps pleather, PETA people) tops. Gianfranco Ferré went for some classic rough-and-tumble pants. Alexander McQueen opted for something different, of course, with a brown butcher apron. And who could forget Gucci's all-leather jumpsuit? So leather daddies, save up: Come next season you've got a lot of shopping to do.
Alexander McQueen's butcher apron. So much better than the "Kiss The Cook" one your dad owns.
Leather: Architectural Collars
For Gianfranco Ferre's first menswear collection, designers Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi created leather coats with high, sculpted collars.
Neil Barrett included a cable-knit texture on a leather blazer, while John Richmond opted for a smooth blazer with matching leather pants.
Here's a new way to wrap yourself: in a cardigan by Neil Barrett.
One of Alexander McQueen's models wore chaps.
Leather: Colored Jackets
Taste the leather rainbow -- cerulean at Versace, forest green at Roberto Cavalli, and canary yellow at Belstaff.
Emporio Armani's cropped leather jacket exposes the midriff of one model. We can see his bellybutton.
Leather: Embellished Jackets
Why wear plain leather when you can embellish? Roberto Cavalli added gold studs and John Richmond painted his jacket.
Leather (or possibly pleather) is limitless for Prada: it's on shirts, pants, shoes, and accents for coats.
Gucci's leather jumpsuit. Oh yes. Incredible.
Leather: Long Brown Coats
Bottega Veneta is no stranger to leather, and it's clear why: this long brown coat looks baby soft. Versace's coat came in a much brighter yellow.
For traditional, motorcycle inspiration, turn to Costume National, Vivienne Westwood, and Moschino. Got a Harley? Anyone?
Leather pants varied in shape and size. Find baggy pants at Gianfranco Ferre, a fitted, higher waist at Alexander McQueen, and two-tone leather accents at Prada.
Belstaff's pants are deep brown, while Prada showed full-length, full-leather bottoms.
Etro's patent red and John Varvatos's patent brown jackets are bright deviations from the other leather we've been seeing. Shine on.
Who said a shirt can't be made from leather? Neil Barrett's is textured, while Prada's has a deep V-Neck.
Layer like Prada or use textured leather like Neil Barrett's cable-embossed top.
Gianfranco Ferre's trench ties at the hip, while Salvatore Ferragamo's ties at the waist.
The John Varvatos trench has a little bit of shine to it. Or go for a matte finish like Burberry.
Alexander McQueen's abs-as-a-vest is amazing, while Dsquared2 put enough pockets on this vest that you can hide anything you want.
