I love the look of leather pants. But the price? Not so much. And, when I've tried to work the faux-leather look (I once owned a pair of pleather pants from Trash and Vaudeville) I wind up feeling uncomfortable and sweaty in strange areas.
So, I'm really happy with the denim industry's latest thing: Waxed jeans. Basically they're treated to look like leather, but they feel like denim--and they ring in at more of an affordable price point too.
Club Monaco, who has just been killing it recently, has a really good pair--I have them in black but I'm almost thinking about purchasing in the dark red too. Some waxed denims just look like shiny jeans but these really, really look like leather.
Get them here.
