Re: What is with all these holey jeans !

This is another one of those old new trends!  This was around back when I was young and that was quite a while.  

 

I have seen a few pairs that I thought I could maybe wear for very casual uses.  They mainly consitsed of a couple tiny rips and then kind of had patches over them.  

 

I still see a lot of the jeans with the ripped hems.  We had this look sort of also when I was young.  But we didn't do it on purpose!  Our jeans were so long that from dragging the ground -- yuck -- they would start to fray.

 

I have not bought any of the frayed hem jeans because for one thing I think this style will go out pretty quickly and for another, I can't wear them to work for casual days.

I've been looking for my staple, pull up tight jeans.  But I'd like them to be  ripped/torn look! I can't find any in a long length though. I just may cut a pair of mine to wear this summer.

It's always been my goal to wear clothing that does not have holes or rips.

@depglass I don't care for the trend.  And I also will not buy any distressed jeans for ethical reasons.

 

The pracitce of producing distressed jeans is linked to lung disease in garment workers.

I have a couple of pairs of "distressed" aka "holey" jeans.
