wearing leathers and boots????

i just bought some leather pants and i am wondering how to wear them with boots while im riding or does it even matter. i see some guys racing with there leathers over there boots and some with the boots over the leathers does it matter or is it just a matter of whats more comfortable???????

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

I think it’s what ever works for you and what you have. Race style leathers fit close enough that they have to go in the boot. Aerostich goes outside the boot. When I wear jeans under the ‘stich I usually wear them inside the boot, sometimes out.

Different types of "leather pants".

Some people call a pair of leather chaps 'leather pants', some call a pair of straight cut full leather pants as 'leather pants' while some will call a pair of leather pants with arbour in them & tapered at the bottom as 'leather pants'.
In all reality it is up to you though you may want to tuck in the pants to the boots during rainy days or cold weather, but then it might be better to let them hang over, depending due to the cut in length or what I would call inside leg length to what you should have or do have.
