is it just me? leather joggers

So leather joggers are a trend I have avoided for a while despite their steady rise to popularity. So many celebrities have gravitated towards the leather sweats trend, but I am still on the fence.  For starters, the wrong leather or pleather (ie. too shiny and smooth) is an instant fail.  Fit with any leather is imperative, but especially when they're pants.  And for all my workout buffs -- you know when someone is trying to lose weight quickly so they wear garbage bags over their sweats to sweat more?  I am not trying to recreate that look; hence the dilemma.

So I know you're thinking, why are we having this conversation?  These pants are terrible.  But  I continued to search and found some celebrities and bloggers who I think have successfully conquered these pants, which gave me a beacon of hope. 

1. Stanley Chen // fashion blogger 2. Scott Disick 3. Kanye West // It is literally disrespectful, especially to Kanye, to talk about leather pants without showcasing him.

Which brings me to ask, have I become so blinded by potential that  I am overlooking that these pants are terrible?  I hope not, because I own the chino version of these pants in 3 colors, so that would be embarrassing.  But really, is it just me?

Help me out friends,
