Get into gear

Steve Grand opens up about his taste for leather

We didn’t know Steve Grand was fond of leather gear. Judging by his penchant for Speedos and jockstraps, it can be difficult to gauge how he likes to dress at all.

But now the truth comes out: Grand just opened up about his longstanding love of all things leather; even letting us know how old he was when he bought his very first pair of chaps.

The musician’s new video for “Walking” includes footage of Grand in his leather fineries, so he decided to candidly tell his Instagram followers all about his fetish.

“A lot of you have been commenting on my leatherman get-up at the beginning of the ‘Walking’ video,” he writes.

“I do love my gear! I was glad to have @mrsleather help make this video happen, as I get all my favorite leather gear from them.’

I bought the chaps you see here when I was just 20, and they have held up amazingly. Seriously top notch! I highly recommend their leather gear!”

    Steve being such a serious artist I’m sure there’s a deeper intellectual semiotic underlying all this

    • Heywood Jablowme

      Yes – Susan Sontag in “Notes On Camp” had a lot to say about the Nazi trick-or-treater look!

  • IanHunter

    Sounds and looks great as usual. Looks like he is having fun in this vid.

    • Polaro

      The video is fun, isn’t it?

  • jd.cali

    Dudes, please… it’s called product endorsement. He’s being paid to sell mrsleather. Duh…

    Yawn. Aren’t his 5 seconds of fame up yet?

    • Polaro

      Bitter much?

  • JaredMacBride

    Does this site get a cut of Grand’s earnings?

    • Polaro

      No, why?

  • herbbtv

    Steve, I think you look great in leather and you can spank my ass anytime. You are such a great artist and look great in your underwear and jock straps. Keep up the good work. When will you come to Burlington, VT?

    I love the song. I liked the start of his Lyric video (also on YouTube) better than the start of this version. I don’t really understand what he and the two dancers are about or the black woman who reminds me of Queen Latiffa. I like the parts with the supposed boyfriend. Maybe I am attributing too much premeditated thought to the video, although Steve is usually pretty detail oriented.

    LOL he would not make a bump on a real leathermans ass !! he is what we called a poser or a visa card master In the real days of leather/SM lifestyle .

    • Tombear

      ‘Fess up! The real days of leather died with the AIDS epidemic of the late 80’s.

  • mhoffman953

    This is one of the worst music videos I’ve ever seen. Most of it is a product endorsement showing all of the products you see the shirtless guys pushing on Instagram

    • Polaro

      LOL, the worst? LOL. Bitter people make me itchy. You make me itchy.

    • mhoffman953


      I don’t think it’s people who make you itchy. You might want to start using soap

    • Polaro

      Oooh, grooming tips from a bitter man.

  • Brian

    I’m beginning to think that Steve Grand is not even a real human, but rather some elaborate troll character invented by bloggers. How can any of this soap opera be real?

    • Polaro

      Said an irrelevant whiner.

  • Rex Huskey

    talentless fame whore….

    • Polaro

      Which makes you? Pathetic?

  • jjose712

    Well, it was not that difficult to guess he has a leather fetichism by the way he dresses lately. A lot of singers were leather pants or jackets (Nick Jonas is a perfect example of singer who likes leather clothes) but some of Steve pics have more fetichistic undertones even when he is not performing (fetish clothes are quite common on videos even someone as vanilla as Taylor Swift uses fetish clothes from time to time).
    what surprise me is the fact that is an old fetish, because he didn’t use to dress that way, not even the more common leather jackets

  • Dan

    I don’t think he’s all that talented. He’s hot and all and controversy helps keep him around but there’s got to be better gay country singers out there. At least I hope there is. I mean this guy I’m sure is nice and all but aside from having mediocre talent, he’s also a walking gay stereotype. I mean chaps now? Whats next he’s going to put on a pair of fairy wings and a golden speedo and run around sprinkling glitter on people? Come on guys, the gay community is exploding with creative talent…we can do better than this.

  • nitejonboy

    I’d prolly take him more seriously as an artist if he didn’t whore himself out in all his photos. Keep your clothes on Steve and you might get more acclaim.
