Theyskens' Theory Patch Leather Pants
Here's the thing about black leather pants... First, they sound really good in theory, particularly to those of us who like to cultivate a particular kind of pseudo-punk, minimalist, downtown vibe. Second, they are almost never good in practice. I'm picturing that woman "of a certain age" at the club with the '80s hair and too-tight black leather boot cut pants. But, if you are willing to splurge, we've located a pair of super modern black leather pants that are as dreamy in real life as they are in your leather pant dreams.

The new Patch Leather Pants from Theyskens' Theory -- Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens' amazing take on the classic Theory label -- represent a fresh take on the leather pant look. These slim, cropped pants feature a modern 8" rise, a classic 5-pocket design and a super chic asymmetrical pant hem. The hem is more visible in alternative views; click through to get a closer look. The cut of these cropped pants is perfect for showing off your favorite pair of shoes and, while the silhouette is modern, these pants are timeless enough serve you well for years to come.
