I love clothes, and Elaine Kim is a go to for fashion, function, and items you will never get rid of. I was going to order the black leather pants but they were sold out at the time, so I went for the Brown Leather instead hoping they would get the black back in stock since I had my hands on a pair and the quality and fit were amazing. When I received the brown snake leather pants. I tried them on right away. They are fitting, nice, but I didn't realize that the leather was not smooth and there was interesting stitching throughout which I saw some online from the photos. My second time wearing them I had someone tell me that the snake skin was flaking off the pant. The leather, and what it is was peeling off the leather. I'm very disappointed, not sure what to do with them now as I don't want to wear them and ruin them more.
