I got an email touting the new fall, must have fashion trend, coated denim. I had no idea what this was. Turns out, it's jeans coated with some sort of resin to make them look like leather. Though they don't look it, supposedly, it's breathable. They look uncomfortable to me, not to mention expensive. I also discovered in the course of my research, that stirrup pants are back, though they seem to be part of the coated denim thing.
