Bringing Size Inclusivity into the Leather Fashion Industry

Posted: 23rd June 2021 in

Size inclusivity has begun to revolutionise the fashion world. As clothing brands and marketing campaigns have broadened the sizes displayed in their promotions, the imbalance of representation in fashion is shifting for the better.

Hidepark’s Andy Bojko believes there’s still work to be done, particularly in leather fashion. Plus size leather jackets are only the beginning – in order to fully meet the broader population’s fashion needs, we must focus on size inclusivity overall.

Size-Inclusive Leather for All

It’s essential that the fashion industry reflects real people, not just idealised body images. This is the driving force behind Hidepark Director Andy Bojko’s commitment to producing high-quality leather clothing that’s inclusive and fashionable. From extra small to plus size leather jackets, achieving inclusivity in a product range is essential for appealing to every type of person.

This isn’t to diminish the impact that plus size catalogues have had – the move towards acknowledging marginalised groups in fashion has been monumental. However, now is the time to incorporate this into all fashion lines, not just those for plus-size shoppers. Therefore, many of Hidepark’s clothing items range in size from XS to 3XL for women (such as this Cayla leather biker jacket), and XS to 5XL for men (like the 7023 leather jacket).

Plus Size Leather Jackets for Comfort and Confidence

We want to celebrate body sizes of all types by offering clothing that fits and looks great for all. Comfort and confidence are the primary components of great fashion – clothes should fit the person, rather than the person needing to fit the clothes.

The leather fashion industry has always been synonymous with style. This style should not be compromised by being exclusive to a select few.

Colourful Plus Size Leather Jackets To Customise Your Style

We stock a range of high quality leather in beautiful blue, red, olive and burgundy shades. For a unique and contemporary look, consider styling your outfit with a burgundy leather jacket. Our personal favourite is the Britney Women’s Burgundy Leather Biker Jacket – a classic jacket with a colourful, modern twist!

Pivoting from ‘Plus Size’ to ‘Size Inclusive’


While it’s fantastic that plus size clothing has shaken up the fashion industry in recent years, more can be done in the name of fashion inclusivity. Andy believes that true inclusivity is achieved when single products are available in a spectrum of sizes that better represents people at large. This ensures that no product is exclusive to one size or another, by incorporating plus size leather jackets into the product lines that also include XS sizes.

Hidepark aims for this inclusivity across all products. The leather fashion industry (and the fashion industry at large) often champions only one body type, so advancing towards inclusivity with leather fashion is a huge step forward in achieving accurate representation.
