For those who love the look of leather pants but are to scared to try them out or unable to get due to the price tag attached. No worries… Waxed denim is a great alternative, plus it is breathable. Waxed denim has always been big (look at G-Star), but it looks like many other brands are following behind. J Brand has come out with their 901 leggings in three different waxed looks. Current/Elliott has recently come out with their waxed jeggings and Victoria Beckham has a pair with many zippers. This is also not a look for just the women, they have also made some styles for us men too. Check out these styles and many more below.

I previously posted this blog post in Feburary when I first got these jeans as they were released. A lot of people were asking for worn pictures for this Diesel Matic 8B3 review. I have finally gotten around to taking some modeled photos for you to see. They are below. Please excuse them being a bit tight in the butt area, since they are rigid they are a lot harder to break in for those of us with a tush, haha!
This weeks denim review is on a pair I recently bought; Diesel Matic 8B3. I am a huge fan of distressing and that is what caught my attention with these jeans. They are absolutely gorgeous! For all you Diesel experts out there, you will understand what I mean when I say the wash is like a mix between 71J and 61X, the blue of the denim is what reminds me of a darker 71J and the rusty patches on the jeans reminds me of 61X. The distressing has heavy reinforcements on the inside so they don’t rip anymore than intended as well. They used really pretty fabrics for this; sparkly silver and a pinstripe white and blue cotton. The hems come pre-distressed too, which I love, it saves you worrying about ruining them yourself…
Please click this blog post to read the rest of the review and view lots of photos modeled by me and laid flat on the floor to show lots of detail.
We got to talk to J Brand about their brand new Houlihan Skinny Cargo pants. They have really taken over the denim world and they are selling out everywhere. We spoke to J Brand about why they designed the pant, its popularity, which wash is their favourite and more! Carry on reading below to find out more about the Houlihan pants. You can read a review of these pants here.
Did you expect the Houlihan pant to be as popular as it is?
We knew when we first fit this style that we had something special but didn’t expect the demand of this style to get to this level.
What made you want to design a cargo pant?
We wanted to participate in the military trend that was so prevalent but design it the J Brand way for the J Brand customer.
Why did you decide to do a skinny version with ankle zips?
We are known for our skinny jeans and felt that this fit, length and details made military modern and sexy.
Why did you decide to go with Japanese twill?
This twill is a fabric we have used in our line before and our customers know and love this fabric. It is made of the highest quality yarn and feels amazing when put on.
I love the Houlihan pants, they are so flattering and so comfy! Who is your favourite celeb in them?
Each celebrity wears the Houlihan in her own stylish and unique way. we are so pleased to have the support of our fans.
Which Houlihan shade/wash is your favourite? Mine is Vintage Olive.
I love the vintage washes especially vintage sahara and vintage navy.
What makes your Houlihan cargo pant different from the other cargo pants on the market?
Everything – from the fit to the fabric to the details – is different.
Do you plan on doing more cargo pants?
We will offer the Houlihan in other fabrics and washes.
I read in an article that you have sold 75,000 pairs and you have 40,000 pairs on back order. That’s very impressive! Which colour is the most popular?
Vintage Olive has thus far been the most popular.
Lastly, a random question, what are your denim predictions for this season and next?
We have new fabrications and love cropped lengths, stove pipe legs and a good boot fit.
