Thanks for making us aware. I think we get the point. Actually I would like it if I knew that animals were not unethically hurt in producing my leggings. The problem is that the manufacturers, such as H&M, Zara, Goosecraft, Joseph etc, most of the time dont know where the leather comes from and therefore cannot guarantee anything.
Back to the topic! I think the leather leggings will not go out of fashion for the next season! I have seen the leather leggings on the catwalk the last seasons, but also for the coming season. I would recommend it.
However please inspect your leggings well before you decide to keep them. I had many problem with different brands of legging, for example one of the the leather tore (at the hem), and the other one the leather tore on my butt. Leather (as thin as it is on the leggings) is very delicate material, therefore dont buy them too tight. Keep the receipt...

It's only okay to be against them if you just dislike them and don't state your reasons. Makes perfect sense.
Sorry, I forgot that this thread was exclusively for people that love them and all other opinions are unwelcome.
I have a leather problem! I really like it. I have leggings, 2 skirts- a shorter one and a pencil, a leather and wool tee, and an off white leather dress that is really cool.
I've been after a cream leather dress for ages. I own a black one and used to own a mahogany colored one. I have sent some that I like at Warehouse (online) but I adore this Mendel one - but I don't want to spend so much on it.
i ordered the XS as per their sizing advice but it's still loose on my waist but tight on my legs. sadly, it's on clearance so i can't return it.
I didnt even realize if they ran small. I vary in size depending on the cut and material so I hope at least one of the two sizes fits me. I am really looking forward to wearing leather leggings this fall.
Off and on topic, I am a vegetarian and vegan at times and I just ordered the Sara Berman leather pants from The Outnet. I just saw the extreme discount price and checked out, never had the desire to want leather pants but hopefully they will fit.
I know to some I am not going by my beliefs but I try my best to do my part when it comes to eating, wearing and using animal products but its very hard in this day and age. Case in point, I would not even be able to drive my car nor DH's because of the leather seats.
