I love the cut of my MMM denim jacket, but the indigo is kinda stupid. I was going to dye it black, and possibly wax it with some Filson wax. Would I have to bleach it first? Would this ruin the viscose lining?

Yeah, I was thinking it might have a cool result. I don't really care if it's perfect black, I just want to get away from the workwear/denim vibe because it totally clashes with the design.
I'll give it a shot and post pics; might test it out on a junk pair of dark jeans first.
also gotta shorten the sleeves sup jet
just rub some candles on it lol
Tomorrow's weather permitting I'm gonna finish painting a pair of zam b jeans. Used acrylic paint and a medium at 2:1 ratio and they're super stiff and not very breathable but I can still wear them. Interested in how they'll evolve. Cool texture. Will post pics when I have a camera that doesn't suck.
Filson sells parafin wax. Use that if you can get it shipped to where you are at a reasonable rate; if not, try to find something similar.
got a chunk of greenland wax today and started waxing, but have realized that I will probably have to do 4-5 layers before I get the "waxed" look I want
will obviously post pics whenever I'm content with it, this was more of a heads-up if anyone else was thinking about doing something similar
