Hey look, that guy has a pair of work pants with holes in them. He must be pretty hard working.
Wow, that guy is a fuckin' poser.
Popularized in the 1980s, the fashion trend revolves around wearing jeans which are ripped, frayed, bleached or excessively worn. In spite of common sense indicating otherwise, it has continued to remain popular with large segments of teenagers and young adults.
Often bought for outrageous prices in excess of $100 at popular mall clothing stores such as Abercrombie & Fitch.
You will notice that Good designer brands such as Diesel, G-star, Replay, Vivienne Westwood etc. all include into some of their range a slight tattered pre-torn/pre-ripped effect usually found amongst the higher paid jeans for their brands but can vary.
Me: *trips girl, causing her to scrape her knee*. I'm sorry, that was an accident. Why were you wearing ripped jeans?
