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
  • Can you wash coated jeans

    What do you wear with your coated jeans

    There are many ways you can wear your coated jeans. A sweater with a nice long jacket is great for a winter look.
    As always a leather jacket is a great choice for any kind of jeans.
    White tshirts with a blazer are always a great way to dress it up.
    A nice cami with a long sleeve shirt partially unbuttoned will dress it up or down, whatever the mood.

    How do you make coated jeans?

    For the diy approach, get a clean pair of jeans. Iron them so they are flat. Mix 40% varnish with 60% black paint. Apply generously making sure to cover all the nooks and crannies. Let dry overnight, and you are good to go.
