Wax coated heavy cotton pants, the wax rubs off with wear and tear giving a distressed look. These have been worn a few times and there is significant wear to the seat from riding a bicycle. Being that the wear is limited to only the seat I would recommend using some fine grit sandpaper to carefully remove the coating in other strategic areas to give a more coherent look / wear pattern. These pants match the waxed cotton jacket which is also for sale here on the shop. If bought with the jacket I’ll throw these in for $15, leave a note in the order details or shoot me an email before buying if you’re interested in both items.
