J Brand Vera Jeans in Coated Stealth

J Brand does it yet again with these Vera Jeans.  J Brand has an uncanny ability to hit the nail right on the head with the perfect skinny jean.

2012 was a really big year of coated denim and has soon become a closet staple.  The beauty of wax coated jeans is that you get the look of leather pants with the comfort of denim and at a more affordable price.  With all of the different brands that have come out with this coated style, J Brand takes it an extra step further with these jeans.  The style is a cross between skinny and straight leg jeans.

Made of 77% cotton, 21% polyester, and 2% spandex, they’re made of a  7.5-ounce power stretch denim, giving them a lot of elasticity and comfort for movement.  I actually ordered one size up from my normal J Brand size.  But because of the elasticity in these jeans, I feel like I could have gone either way.  Sometimes jeans with a lot of elasticity allow for more size options because the material clings right to the leg.  So overall, I’d say that these run true to size.  And they don’t really stretch out much after wear.

With a 7 ¾ inch rise, these are more of a mid rise jean.  They have a very minimalistic design with faux front pockets and subtle, almost anonymous rear pockets.  They fit like a skinny jean, feeling tight throughout the thighs and calves, but with the front slit opening, they fall into a straight line fitting almost like a straight leg jean.  And the front has a seam that goes all the way down the leg, elongating the look of the legs.  The leg opening is 10 inches, but with the 4 ½ inch front slits it allows for a much wider opening.

The wash name is Coated Stealth which is a black wash with a wax coated finish.  These look less like leather compared to some of the other wax coated denim available and that we’ve reviewed.  But the wax coating is still apparent on these and definitely add more style.

The inseam is 31 ½ inches.  The only downfall to these jeans is that if you need to have the length altered, it will likely affect the look of the jeans because of the front slit.  Just something to keep in mind if you think you’ll need to alter yours.

Washing instructions are:  dry clean only (environmentally friendly dry cleaning is recommended to maintain the wax coating).
