WISHLISTED. Black leather shorts

Practicality points?! Zero.
Coolness factor?! Maximum.

Black leather short is a piece of clothing that I don't own, and probably won't ever own BUT it's also a piece that I'll always dream about. I love how it looks on the singer/rapper A$AP ROCKY or how the spanish blogger Pelayo Diaz wears it, but I'm not sure how I'd personally pull it off. 
It's one of those womenswear inspired clothing pieces that is hard enough for women to wear, but even harder for us men. On the other side, leather is one of the basic menswear materials, and men wear it from the beginning of time (literally!). Why would then the black leather short look feminine on men?!  

Now when I think bout it, I'd TRY to pull it off combining it with a basic white t-shirt, and probably a pair of colourful sneakers, or maybe with a hawaii printed short-sleeved button-up, and a pair of red oxfords. I really hope to see myself wearing a pair one day. Maybe the Givenchy one.
