When I posted about the new DL1961 fall campaign just recently, there were those coated leather-like babies that began sticking in my mind….and sticking….! And, I am not even such a crazy skinny jeans fan. But these did it for me and I decided to check them out. Sarah Ahmed, one of DL’s founders and creative minds, had them send me a pair (thank you, Sarah!!) and I even fell more in love. They are quite thicker than the summer DL1961’s we had seen in stores during summer. The coating is probably double layered, I am not sure, but they do feel absolutely “tough”, not as if the coating is going to fade anytime soon. Which is a problem I have had a lot of in the past with coated jeans.
The style they sent me and that you can see here is the Florence. This style is higher-waisted and has a longer inseam than the Emma. But the jeans still hit at the ankle, which is about perfect.
This fall is going to be about coated jeans more than ever. The coated Florence come in burgundy, black and grey, and are available here.
