Aaaah, distressed jeans.. to me, what is there not to love especially when they look like you really have had them for many years and worn them with love. They are the sign of loyalty and a perfect pair that works for you year after year even some of us today would pay top dollar for a pair of ready made distressed. My mom went ballistic when she learned that I actually paid for my pants to look like 'beggar'! Seriously. Now, the question is when would distressed turned to destroyed? Maybe it is a matter of preference. Some like their jeans really distressed or borderline damaged while other prefer the clean 'I-just-bought-this-pair-yesterday' look.
I remember walking one day on errand in Dubai old 'souq' or market wearing my slightly distressed pair, well worn tee and a pair of flip flop and along the way I realized many of the people I passed by was staring at my jeans and looking at me with a sense of pity. Probably they thought I might need a new pair ;) And my orthopedic actually said to my husband "She has a hole in her pants, buy her a new one" when he saw me with my favorite pair! I hope he was joking ;)
While I prefer my distressed jeans rather mild like the last picture above (I actually own the same pair of Current Elliot worn in the picture), what is your preference? Distressed, mildly distressed or destroyed? As always, I am thrilled to hear your opinion :)
