A new trend is emerging that is taking the gay community by story. Leather gear, which is traditionally associated with BDSM, kink, and fetish subcultures, is making its way into mainstream fashion. While leather is not a new fabric for fashion designers, what is new is how gay men are taking pieces of erotic gear and incorporating them into their every day wardrobe as fashion accessories.
A pair of blue jeans, black boots, and a leather harness is a staple outfit for many men at Pride parades, festivals, events, parties, or local bars. However, for guys who are interested in wearing leather, but are looking for something that is more unique, different, and versatile, The Stockroom has a hot new piece of leather gear that guys are going to go crazy over; mercenary suspenders.
Fun, sexy, masculine, and approachable, the new mercenary suspenders from The Stockroom make wearing leather more approachable and fashionable. The plain black leather with nickel-plated hardware allow men to have more control and flexibility with their fashion options.
Made of medium weight garment leather, the mercenary suspenders can easily be dressed up or down, making them the ultimate fashion accessory. They are easily adjusted using the snaps on the front and back. The suspenders easily clip to the front belt loops of any pair of pants. An awesome old-school back brace design wraps around, holding everything comfortably in place against the back and shoulders.
For formal events the mercenary suspenders work well with a dress shirt and slacks, giving an edgy attitude with a burst of power and authority. For a more casual look, jeans and a simple t-shirt work perfectly. And when it’s time for the shirt to come off to show some skin, these suspenders will frame your back, shoulders, chest, and abs, making them stand out even more.
Leather gear doesn’t have to be just for the bedroom anymore. It’s better to invest in top quality pieces that can be fun to play with, but also expand your style options, giving you more options. Gear, like the mercenary suspenders from The Stockroom really help make wearing leather more approachable and less intimidating.
