Juan Rico/Fame

If the term “leather shirt” has your mind conjuring up images of cheezy men with hairy chests and too may gold chains, you’d better think again. As celebs like Katie Holmes, Teri Hatcher, Katherine Heigl and Vivica Fox have learned, the designs of Alan Michael USA Leatherworks turn this 70’s wardrobe staple into sexy and super chic clothing. Katherine and Vivica both own the Heart Neck Snap shirt (shown here), Katie has the motorcross zip-up jacket, and Teri Hatcher has the double-breasted crop coat. Check out all Alan Michael’s designs at alanmichaelusa.com including jackets, pants, vests, skirts and shirts.

VERY sexy!! love the color…

steph on

Um, no thanks. First of all, why would we show this when summer has just begun and we’re facing 90 degree temperatures? Second, they’re not very cute…

faith on

yeah, i agree with steph. i don’t like this look at all. i just can’t seem to get over the biker chick stereotype in my head.

amber on

OMG i love this jacket…it’s so cute! i would wait until the fall to wear it though.

faith on

it’s not a jacket, it’s a shirt. if it were a jacket i wouldn’t have a problem with it.

I LUV this “Biker Chick” look! I agree that this is a little warm for summer, but it’s seems approperate for cool afternoons this summer while riding my motorcycle (I live in the cooler climate of the NC mountains)!! How much?

Julie on

“Biker chick”?? No way! This is more like ranch hand! I think it’s really pretty, but I wouldn’t wear it. I try not to wear leather (although I’ll admit I don’t pay much attention when it comes to shoes).

faith on

yeah i guess you’re right julie. “ranch-hand” is a better fit for this particular shirt. but i think what i was getting at with the “biker chick” comment is leather tops (excluding jackets) in general.

enigma on

I just checked out Alan Michaels website. I have to say I not really fond of the style he has to offer…for men or women. It’s too “ranch hand” as in “let’s get dressed up and go square dancin’ outback in the barn tonight” for me…so, no thanks!!

sophieb on

eww sick shirts are nice but leather ones soo not.It would be alright if a woman was wearing this in a movie but not anywhere else and wouldnt it be heavy and when you put it on the feel of it wouldnt be nice at all on your skin.It would smell terribly.I love the colour though.

Sadie on

Julie and Faith…sorry to burst your bubble but where do U think the steel horse comes from…..Besides, I don’t think Katie, Katherine, Terry nor Vivica would be wearing this type/brand of shirt working on the farm????!!!! Very sexy shirt, especially for a biker chick…I would definately wear it! To each her own.

Julie on

My bubble isn’t going to burst because we disagree about the style of a shirt. Also, just because someone wouldn’t wear it working on a ranch doesn’t mean it isn’t western style.

chrystal on

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT

Pam Friend on

I LOVE this brand of leather. Buttery soft and beautifully made. I have my eye on a pair of pants… YUM! And the jackets are great too!

Juergen on

I’m waiting for a manskirt form Alan Michael … no hope?
