AG Adriano Goldschmied Leggings in Leatherette Blackberry

Now that the temperature has begun to drop, I’m starting to pull out my favorite denim.  One of the favorites for this Fall is coated denim.  The denim appears as if it’s dipped in wax, giving the illusion of leather but on a tighter budget.  This week while wearing these, someone complimented me on my “fabulous leather pants,” which gave me a nice chuckle.  These jeans do indeed look a lot like leather.  Of all the waxed denim I’ve tried this season, I must say these do appear the closest to genuine leather.  These are AG Adriano Goldschmied’s The Legging in Blackberry Leatherette.

This is one of AG’s slimmest style, which is super tight.  Although they are extremely slim fit, they are also very forgiving due to the fabric.  Made of 80% cotton, 15% modal and 5% pu, these are made of a stiffer coated denim on the outside , but the inner part of the legs is made of a soft cotton that feels similar to flannel, allowing for a very comfortable fit.

The color is called Leatherette Blackberry.  This Fall, ox blood colors seem to be the color of the season.  These are not quite that red, so they don’t stand out too much.  I love the color.  It has a nice hint of burgundy while still neutral and versatile.  And the inner part of the leg is a fuchsia color, which I decided to roll up to show a little preview of the color.  If you’re less daring and prefer to stay more neutral, don’t worry.  These come in a wide array of colors, many of which are great basics such as black, grey, blue, and olive.

The inseam is 31 ½ inches with a 10 inch leg opening.  As with many of AG jeans, these run a little on the small side.  If you’re in between sizes, I’d recommend going up in size.

Washing instructions are:  Machine wash cold inside out, tumble dry low, do not bleach.

    Hi Susan!
    Tks for this review!
    They look nice, and are more affordable than real leathers!
    Unfornately at shopbop my size is out of stock! They have the olive color ones though, so I might think about it…
    How is the sizing, compared to other brands? I usually wear a 25/26 in J Brand/Siwy/Paige/Current Elliott….do they run smaller?
    Tks a lot!

      They do run slightly small. If you are in between sizes, I’d take the larger size. If you are 25/26 in J Brand, then you might want to try a 26 in these. The olive ones are really gorgeous also. Revolve also carries them in the blackberry if you’re interested. Good luck! 🙂

    Do they stretch out at all? I’m in-between sizes and feel like the larger size is a little too big. If i go down a size will they stretch a little bit??

    • Susan says:

      They do stretch out a little with some wear, but they don’t stretch out a whole lot. Overall, AG runs a bit on the smaller size, so I typically advise going up a size with these if you’re in between sizes.
