I used to wonder why ripped denim was only ripped on one side, e.g all the distress at the front and perfectly respectable at the back.
The jeans (above) are shredded at the front, and the back. I now understand.
It took me 20 minutes to get them on… my feet kept getting stuck in the slits!
They definitely aren’t the ‘jump out of bed and chuck on’ kind of jeans. So while they may be aesthetically devil-may-care you really do need to care to take the effort to get them on.
There is a technique to all this which I only discovered once my frustration died down.
