There is something special about leather that no other fabric can match. Leather has been imitated with several types of synthetic fabrics, but these never match the quality and general feel of the real thing. Leather clothing has never gone out of fashion, and that means that no matter what size you wear, you should be able to find genuine leather jackets, vests, and pants that not only fit you, but look great as well.
Here are a couple of examples that I like:
Plus-size leather pants for women pictured:

When it comes to pants, some people actually prefer faux leather to the real thing. The advantage of the fake stuff is that it can be made very thin and very supple.
