Tragedy + Time = Comedy

And I mean "tragedy" in the Queer Eye For the Straight Guy sense, as in "Honey that outfit is tragic."

Torn jeans and flannel in 1991: get a job, hobo!

Torn jeans and flannel in 2015: was there a sale at Abercrombie?

i shit you not, i saw 4 girls in my school all wearing the exact same top on the exact same day and i know you might think they're like best friends or something but they don't even speak. and i'm a keen social observer :P

in any case, the fashion for torn jeans (at least in London) has been peculiar lately... i've noticed guys have their jeans down to their knees with their asses hanging out and girls have very neat little rips on their knees so that their ''jeggings'' or whatever they are, look more edgy :?

though it's better to just tear the jeans yourself, buying them torn is kinda poseurish. i remember taking a pen knife saw blade to the jeans which are to this day my favourite pair. breezy in the summer and if you're cold, just put on some tracksuits underneath, Kurt had the right idea!

I thought it was poserish to tear the jeans yourself.

What you're supposed to do is be poor because you come from a broken home, so you only get clothes from older siblings or second-hand stores. Then the jeans either already have holes in them from being so worn out, or they're just on the verge and you wear holes in them accidentally by wearing them out yourself. You're also supposed to work some kind of manual labor at some point in your adolescence and wear holes in them that way.

If you can't swing that, you have to at least SAY that's what happened even though you bought them from Abercrombie.

Pretty much the only reason why most people here in the South have holes in their jeans, which is including me!

Honestly, I don't like holes in my jeans and the irony is I get holes in my favorite pairs. :(

I did my manual labor in the American Southwest. Installing drywall in 115˚. Good times. Man, I was a scrappy 19 year-old, looking back on it.

My pants have been mostly hole-free since I was in my early 20s. That's what happens when you have a wife who's big on fashion, I guess: she doesn't let you dress like a bum, even if you like to.

Yeah. Ripping the jeans yourself/buying them pre-ripped is bad. To save time and money, make a sandwich board that says "I am a cunt" and put that on instead.

I only buy them like that if they are from thrift stores and the user before me ripped them just by wearing them out for years, not if they are "manufacture pre-torn" with the neat little holes.

That's acceptable. Mostly was focused on if you buy "manufacture pre-torn" then....get out. :lol: :ugeek:
