What is BLUF?

BLUF = Breeches and Leather Uniform Fan Club

BLUF is a club for men who enjoy wearing breeches and leather uniforms. Founded in 1997, there are now over 3,400 members worldwide, and many of them meet in person at BLUF events.

What is BLUF:DC?

DC Leather Pride is proud to be the host of BLUF:DC.  It started as a way to celebrate and appreciate the full-uniform look, seeing men in leather from head to toe, or Muir cap to boots, 😉  during Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend.

Now, we are proud to host a monthly happy hour at the DC Eagle, every first Sunday of the month, from 4pm – 9pm. Bring your cigars, put on your leather best.

What is the BLUF dress code?

The dresscode for BLUF is Breeches and Leather Uniform. When we say “Breeches” we mean trousers with a “balloon” or bulge on the side, not just plain riding trousers. These are included:

  • Full leather uniform
    With or without breeches, full leather looks great. So, that’s shirt, trousers, probably a jacket, and accesories such as a tie, Sam Browne belt, gloves, cap. You don’t need all of these, but it should look smart, and formal
  • Fabric uniform with breeches
    Think Canadian Mountie – smart, and formal. A fabric uniform is allowed, as long as it has breeches
  • Part leather uniform
    With or without breeches. For instance, a police uniform, with a leather jacket and duty belt, or a police style fabric shirt, with leather trousers and other accessories
  • Police or military bike leathers
    British motocycle cop, German green Polizei bike leathers, and similar gear from other countries is welcome
