  • What Are Coated Jeans?

    Coated jeans are regular jeans by all accounts. They are put through a process during manufacturing that when the process is complete, your jeans have an almost shiny wax like appearance to them. Are especially popular for those looking for a leather type look as well.

    What Are Wax Coated Jeans?

    Waxed coated jeans are regular jeans put through a manufacturing treatment that will make jeans shiny but feeling very rubbery (waxlike) and provide a shiny glossy finish that resembles leather or pleather.

    Pros of Wax Coated Jeans

  • They are a great alternative to leather or pleather jeans
  • Look much dressier than regular jeans
  • The textural outcome is very interesting.
    It gives off a kind of rock, modern vibe when you wear them
  • Cons of Wax Coated Jeans

  • The texture can feel very odd and be a total dealbreaker for buying them.
  • Much more stiff than denim, so comfort is not a given in these jeans
  • Hard to layer because friction is a result of getting them on and off
  • My Textile Science explains the process:

    The coating is generally done using pigment, acrylic or polyurethane coating. Pigment coating provides the denim a new look and experience after every wash. Acrylic and PU, however, act as a transparent coating. This protects the fading properties. It also gives the fabric a protective breathable layer with stain resistant properties. The luster and feel of the fabric are also improved.

    Resin Coating is generally done with the help of wooden handle. A rubber squeezer is used to extract resin under pressure to form leather effect on denim garment. It is a neutral ( pH 7) cream-colored paste that is miscible in cold water and resistant to heat upto 200 degree Celcius. It is self catalysed and chlorine resistant.

    The coating can be applied on the garment by screen, brush or knife edge. Machine coating is also possible. After applying coating the fabric is dried and cured at 150 degree Celcius of 5 minutes. Normally the coating are permanent in nature and able to sustain multiple launderings.

    Just Jeans?

    There are different types of coating that can be done, making this trend even more versatile. Not only is this wax type coating used on jean pants, but can also be used as trims, on jackets and tops. Try these on for size:







    How To Wear It

    Every company seems to be jumping on the coated denim bandwagon, making it an affordable option for a little added style. For those of you that are a little timid about trying coated denim, here’s a little guide to use for the perfect Fall/Winter outfit. You can keep it simple with the base of the outfit (white tee + jeans) letting the jeans speak for themselves. A strong coat enhances the look of the jeans and also adds another texture to your outfit, so no two items blend into each other. The boots add yet another texture and also tie in the look, leaving the accessories to finish everything off. If plaid is a little too “loud” for you, a black coat will do the trick and make the mix of textures pop a little more.
