This week the DAILY RECOMMENDATIONS investigates the pleasures of leather, a material in menswear that has enjoyed a healthy resurgence for this autumn. But how does one don day-to-day leather? A leather trouser, in a not too tight or baggy cut, is a suitable alternative to jeans. This pair of HERMÈS trousers, pictured above, have a sympathetic fit and, as expected, are made from a buttery soft leather with just the right amount of rigidity. When worn with a wool jumper, such as this tan fisherman’s model by RICHARD JAMES, the trousers seem to adopt the knit’s casual, comfy feel. The socks are by FALKE.
