Friends come and go, but denim is forever, and by that we mean to say, we hoard a lot of jeans, so we’re set for life. Regardless of passing trends, (you’ll NEVER catch us wearing bucket hats), the importance of distressed, ripped denim is hard to ignore — important primarily because we love our knees, and sometimes you just want to show them off to the world, like, “YEAH, I LOVE MY KNEES. BACK OFF BETCH.”
Nevertheless, consider the following: the act of showing more skin via ripped jeans for men is basically akin to the recent success of the sideboob. Sex appeal without full reveal. Which brings us to our next question: what happens when said men display sideboob AND more skin via ripped jeans? Trend alert. Kidding, but maybe not kidding.
For us, they (a very, very old pair of Abercrombie & Fitch distressed jeans) make for the perfect imbalance to a Canadian tuxedo. And the perfect partner to a $2.99 thrifted suede jacket.
