Jet Rag

Best Vintage Leather Pants, August 2013

Warm weather be damned: Smart chopper jockeys and club hoppers know nothing protects better and looks hotter than a supple pair of broken-in leather leggings. Ensuring that your trousers skew rock star rather than roadkill requires some, ahem, legwork. The quest ends at the vintage corral known as Jet Rag. Suede and patent choices for both sexes occupy racks by the dozens at prices that won’t tan your hide. If you’re not averse to crowds, stop by on any Sunday for the emporium’s weekly $1 yard sale—because bargain fabrics just breathe better.
