is it just me? leather harnesses

I haven't done an "is it just me" post in a while.  I think I've been pretty minimal risk with these posts in the past, but today, I am thinking I'll be a little more polarizing.  So a trend that I've seen in women's fashion, that's making its way to menswear is BDSM-esque leather harnesses.  Like most of you, I was weirded out by the sound of this because I am not trying to have my fashion screaming "dominate me".  Over time I've seen this trend put into play and I'm warming up to it.  When done right, it becomes a surprise, almost hidden fashion feature rather than a full-on sexual distraction.

So as you can see, I am not thinking of something super excessive. I like when it looks like modified suspenders, not-so-much of the "hang me from the ceiling" situation.  I even think it looks cool under blazers and jackets.  But what do you think?  Please feel free to love it or hate it -- I just want to hear what you think.  Do you think BDSM can make it's way to sophisticated menswear, or is it just me?

I have to be honest and admit that I've already ordered one, so be on the lookout for it in a future outfit post.  I am just in a phase where I want to be less timid with my fashion risks, so all I'll say is get ready.

Until next to me,
