Black wax version--Cool pants I guess, but nothing clued me in until they arrived of the waxed faux leather thing. Washing instructions were more complex than I could possibly handle. The warning, "How to correct any foul odor" promised further unwelcome surprises. Waxed denim has a nice luster, for certain, but the pants' stiffness and rubberized impermeability made them seem more appropriate for foul weather utility wear on a commercial fishing boat in winter, not hugging my loins in the New Jersey summer. You'd have to commit to these jeans.
