Buzz Bissinger has done the impossible. The Friday Night Lights author and general sports curmudgeon has inadvertently come up with a new an definition of the phrase "I'm with you, Leather" that does not involve Chris Berman, yet manages to reach a whole new level of creepiness. He does so by revealing his addiction to leather clothing and accessories in an article for GQ, one that has cost him over $600,000 dollars in leather jackets, pants, and whatnot.

"I own eighty-one leather jackets, seventy-five pairs of boots, forty-one pairs of leather pants, thirty-two pairs of haute couture jeans, ten evening jackets, and 115 pairs of leather gloves. Those who conclude from this that I have a leather fetish, an extreme leather fetish, get a grand prize of zero. And those who are familiar with my choices will sign affidavits attesting to the fact that I wear leather every day. The self-expression feels glorious, an indispensable part of me. As a stranger said after admiring my look in a Gucci burgundy jacquard velvet jacket and a Burberry black patent leather trench, "You don't give a f**k." 

Creeped out yet? Would the fact that he admits to wearing leather goods intended for women disturb you? It's six pages of mid-life crisis that are hover between states of the profound and disturbing. The most disturbing image may be that of a man dressed in leather with a shopping bag over his head a la The Unknown Comic. It must be the gimp mask of a shopping addict.
