Hey jeans guys- it occurred to me when I saw two good books on punk rock today (with lots of ripped denim! 8) ), plus the "when do you toss 'em" thread on our forum here: who likes to go on wearing them when they start to rip? Where do you draw the line? I personally think that ripped and torn jeans are the most precious, cool, and sexy jeans. A fade is nice obviously, but a rip is the advanced version of a fade, no? Most often it is a memory of the moment when the tear occurred. Of course I do not "expose" myself indecently, wearing my jeans always on the skin without underwear, so crotch rips that get too large call for repair or retiring them. But I do'nt find there's anything wrong with knees, thighs, or even a not too large piece of ass showing through a hole. Frankly, I like the provocative effect of it, and I think it also shows that denim is more than just a fabric for you (or else, that you cannot afford new jeans....) Very eager to hear your comments!
