Trend Alert: Distressed Jeans


In general, the ideal man sports an impeccable outfit, featuring sharp cuts, suave shades, and rich fabrics that ooze quality, AKA no holes and/or rips. That was until the denim-sphere reached another level; destroyed jeans are now bang on trend.

According to Calvin Klein, Philipp Plein, Dolce & Gabbana, and us, this season, your jeans should look “lived in.” If you’re wondering how to get people to take you seriously while you are channeling your inner Sid Vicious, the rule is simple; if you’re wearing your chopped up denim and the amount of hairy skin showing is larger than the overall fabric, then it’s time for you to lay your jeans to rest. And suddenly, the word “rip” gets a “hole” other meaning.
