    Personally I think its stupid to pay $200 bucks for a pair of "damaged" jeans when I can get two pairs of good jeans and over time let it become naturally damaged. Or if I want naturally ripped jeans I'll go to a thrift store and spend two bucks.

    Bleh not for me. :sick: I bought a nice pair of jeans earlier this year.

    I tripped down a hill while walking to my car and ripped my jeans. They looked like anything you could buy. I had the "tattered and torn" look in a matter of seconds (and scraped up and bloody knees and elbows). I never wore them again even though they looked like they could pass for a hot item in a clothing store.

    IMO, buy a decent pair of jeans and trip yourself down a hill. You'll be saving money.

    i think out of all the jeans out there paper denim has the most authentically looking distressed look, except for the weird yellow washes and painted on resin's they have. then there are the handful of the uber expensive jeans that look authentically used too.

    holes look wrong when you have a hole in a spot you never would get a hole, when there's a hole and the rest of the jeans are in perfect condition and when there are too many holes

    I don't know, I noticed that pre damaged jeans and basic jeans were pretty much the same price. I got some Miss Sixty dark denim jeans, but they weren't ripped, they just had that sort of look as if they'd been picked at by something sharp, which I wouldn't be able to achieve by myself.

    Honestly, I wear pre-damaged jeans because no matter what, when they get damaged by themselves, it never works right for me. I bought a pair of pre ripped and now, ironically they're getting really threadbare in the crotch.........go figure.

    i would love to know what kind of on-your-knees work you do where you can distress jeans better than companies who earn their keep by distressing jeans like evisu and rogan.

    I personally will not wear any jeans that are whiskered, torn, faded etc. When my jeans start to look like that I throw them out and buy a new pair. I can't understand the concept of paying $100+ for jeans that look old and worn.

    Actually, no because I refuse to spend more than $50 for jeans since I rarely wear them. I am a dresses and skirts girl. :blush:

    All my jeans seem distressed, and can you blame them since they have to live with me?
