Leather pants - Leather trousers
Leather trousers are made entirely, or for the most part, of leather. Generally, leather trousers are chrome tanned. Leather from a variety of animal species can be used for making leather trousers. The most typical being cow leather, goatskin, lamb leather or pig leather. But also deerskin, [calfskin]] or kangaroo leather can be used. The leather must be robust enough for this purpose. Leather pants are available as smooth leather, nubuck or suede.
