One is actual waxed oilcloth, like you find in drover coats. I was wanting a pair of waxed jeans when they first came out. Plus, the jeans remind me of Crust Jeans and I first started noticing them after I learned about the Crust Jeans craze. Email Address will not be published. Good stuff to keep in mind.
Right now I am sooooo into slouchy and comfy that I am going to give waxed denim a pass. I have a pair I bought last year! I really like the look, but not sure I have the patience for it. Once dressed, I want my clothes to be comfy and not have to think about them again. Having a difficult time getting a jacket on old not make me happy. I also have very sensitive skin, and I cannot take any itch factor.
I suspect that the rubbing of this fabric would also irritate me. I have seen many variants on the waxed denim — there seems to be two main styles or three, actually. One is actual waxed oilcloth, like you find in drover coats. I have a pair of coated jeans and I quite like them. They have the sheen and wet look, but are softer than the rubbery or waxed types. This is exactly my experience of my waxed denim moto jacket.
I do not reach for it at all now, in the winter, although I wore it a number of times in the fall. Thank you, Angie, for you honest assessment of the pros and cons of waxed denim. I have seen them in burgundy, but I had not committed to owning a pair.
Given your assessment, I think my wardrobe will survive without this addition. Thank you for such a good assessment. I will enjoy the look on those tough enough to wear it; and they will have my undying admiration! I would have bought them in a heartbeat had the been long enough. Soft, comforting and cozy sounds good to me! If I could find a softer waxed denim coated perhaps as Ceit says I would go for it, because it calls to me from my sci-fi roots.
I think the fabric scientists should be working on something that looks like rubber and feels like cashmere! I barely get a chance to wear jeans as it is. They are shiny though and a bit stiff but still very comfy ; honestly I like a bit of stiffness to my jeans for looks as they have more structure than super soft or super stretchy jeans. I was wanting a pair of waxed jeans when they first came out. Someone had posted a link to a tutorial here using otter wax. My jeans looked good but I over waxed them and they would not dry and the smell was really really strong.
Had to toss them. That kind of killed it for me. Still looking for brown waxed jeans… Brown seems fitting for waxed jeans to me. Something 19th century cowboy about that.
I love my waxed denim skinnies — they are not overly waxed so the texture is not so stiff. As a bonus, they work as a warm windshield, like leather. Also not sure of the trend factor and the practicality of maintenance.
I have been thinking of trying waxed jeans but think I should try them on in store before committing to them. Not sure I will be able to adjust to the fabric but will definitely try them on. I am thinking a brown skinny waxed jean….. Has anyone else noticed this with their waxed items? The idea of waxed jeans fits my style these days, but not my lifestyle. I got a pair of waxed jeans in from Paige, I got them because the Nordstrom SA recommended them. I need to get them dry-cleaned to preserve the wax, however some of the wax has still come off.
My other waxed item is the R13 X-over jeans; waxing was completely irrelevant to my decision to purchase these. I will dry clean these like the above jeans though because they have a subtle sheen that I wish to retain. Love my coated nydj jeans. Paired with super soft angora like sweater and it was super comfy. Not sure about different coatings, but these do tend to look like leather. I find them comfortable and love wearing them.
I like the look a lot, but have not actually tried on anything in waxed denim. Good stuff to keep in mind. A fad that I am willing to let pass me by.
I like soft and cozy dressing, so waxed denim is not for me. But I do enjoy the harder, rock n roll look on others. Thanks for this, Angie! I love the idea of waxed denim, but after reading your thoughts, I can tell it will not be my cup of tea. I am extremely sensitive to the way things feel on my skin, but usually run too warm to layer much. I will really enjoy seeing this look on others! I love the slight rock n roll vibe without being over the top studded or ripped or otherwise bordering on punk.
Rocker chic, I like to think of it as. Denise Cocolion has stated my fears, these items need careful laundered to preserve the wax and this would eat into my clothing budget, for that reason I am passing the trend by.
I owned almost exactly the same 7 for all mankind jacket pictured here, that I purchased in a similar style a couple of years ago. I bought it as an updated casual topper but it was severely ignored in my closet and when I rediscovered it, I saw that the waxy layer had cracks in them! I stay away from this look now! Thank you for your assessment of this finish, Angie. I love the look of your jacket and am glad that you can still enjoy wearing it.
I love the look of waxed denim, especially as an accent or trim on something. But I will certainly keep all these good points in mind before purchasing. I tried a soft ish pair on but the felt uncomfortable. I do love the look though, the trim idea is a possibility though — thanks Angie. Totally recommended — they are definitely the sexiest trousers I own and are really easy to dress up or down. I saw some coated denim fabric in my local fabric store, and I thought it might be fun to make myself a pair of slim fit pants to wear for the holidays.
The fabric I saw was very stiff but did not have a rubbery feel to it. Based on you test-drive observations I think I will pass. Stiff and rubbery just do not appeal to me….
