Fire.I don’t have the faux leather, but I have the waxed denim from SLP and it’s my favorite denim, even more so than the MIJ black (which also has a little “shine” to it). The SLP waxed denim is a light wax, but the more you wear it the more it evolves. It’s kind of a “dull” black, that shines with wear, if that makes any sense. The JE is supposedly a double wax, hopefully that doesn’t mean it’s too shiny, like a faux leather. I think you need to be careful with waxed denim, too waxed and it just looks weird and restricts you to only wearing it at night. I guess we’ll see.
Anyway here are some pics of my SLP waxed denim from a while back, there are 2 pics, but anyway you can see how it “shines” off the sunlight.
