Plated jeans... a suit of armour

Acne decided to join forces with a German-born designer Husam El Odeh. This London based designer is a metal-smith and has added sterling silver plates to Acne's latest denim wear.

I have a love/hate relationship with these pieces. First of all, I really dislike the white pair, for me the just don't work. The other jeans seem interesting and would work so well for that glam warrior look. But are they comfortable? Practical? How do you wash them? I think they look very cool, but I don't think they'd work in the real world.

Now when it comes to the jacket my opinion changes. I really like this jacket. I think the silver plates look well on this piece, they make sense there. And they seem practical enough compared to the jeans. What do you think?
