SUPERFINE 'Liberty' Skinny Blue Resin Jeans, available at Forward.
Ever since I saw the collection of treated, resin-baked jeans from brands like 7 for All Mankind, I was instantly whipped. I knew I had to have ‘em. I knew that if I couldn’ t have ‘em, then nobody can! Ahem, well, I didn’t really get THAT obsessed, but boy did those leather-looking, rocker chic jeans stop me in my tracks. Would I feel like a supermodel in ‘em, or would I be more Joan Jett? What about the guys’ version? Even denim designers like Mik Serfontaine have been spotted sporting his own pair of well-loved coated Serfontaine Denim slimleg jeans. He looks so rocker in ’em!

It also blew my mind to discover that the treated jeans didn’t come in just black. Can you imagine walking into some night spot and heads turn. “Are those leather pants? Is it leatherette? Is she with the band?” In the other part of my fantasy, after partying the night away in my SUPERFINE Blue Resin Jeans, I head into a diner to grab some grub at 3 a.m. As I slide effortlessly onto the banquette, I only worry about which Blue Plate Special to order, and whether I’d get mustard on my Hayden-Harnett Grey Angelika leather vest. I’d spend the next hour working on a new song called, “Who Needs Boys When Denim Don’t Treat Me Bad?” I need to work on a shorter title, I guess.
So here they are, a collection of coated, baked, treated jeans that I’ve stumbled upon recently. How would you rock it? Check it!
