Ripped Jeans and What You Should Know



It is no secret that a good ripped pair of jeans can last you forever.. A pair of rips can make or break an outfit. You have to make sure you take care of them and buy a good pair . I love a “good rip” , I absolutely live for them. But you have to know what to buy and what not to buy . Here are a few do’s and don’t’s on purchasing ripped jeans , as well as the best brands to buy from. 

DO’s

Spend good money on the jeans and don’t spare 

Make sure the denim company has lasting jeans that have good wear and tear 

Know how to determine a good denim and its breaking point . Too many jeans with bigger holes may not last be careful putting them on, I ripped open a great pair of Madwells because I was moving too fast

Have your favorite pair on hand always 


Don’t 

Buy a cheap ripped pair of jeans and expect them to last 

Purchase jeans with poor rips, rips with thin threads

Expect a long wear out of cheap jeans



PLACEMENT OF THE RIPS

When buying a pair of ripped jeans, it’s important to consider where the distressed sections are located. It should look natural; that’s why holes and shreds are often placed around the knee.
Holes on the upper thigh of your jeans could risk looking unnatural and out of place, while holes or shreds around the shin area could look like you’ve been nibbled by a dog on your way out!
Scrapes generally can be placed anywhere on your jeans as they are a very subtle detail. They are particularly popular around the pockets, as if to look like natural wear and tear.
