Is there any way to rip a pair of jeans, say at the knee, so that they fray? I've got a really old gray pair that are falling apart, so I thought I'd see what I can do with them by ripping them up some more to see if it looks cool. And I've got another pair that I don't wear anyway (I'm a shorts kinda guy). Both are made from cotton I think.

Can it be done and how would I go about it?

try doing the cut with a blunt knife so that they fray more..... if not just run them through the wash a few times........ also 2 khann...... cutting ur jeans is not faggy, it lets u get an xtra few years out of them wen u have put a massiv rip thru the leg somewhere........

They're destroyed anyway, and like I said, I normally wear shorts. Just want to try something different

Something different, by doing what everyone else is?

Just go buy them at Hollister. All the cool kids buy them there!

+90. Peopl who wore ripped jeans did it not out of choice or because they thought it looked cool, they did it because they couldn't afford new ones. Don't purposely rip your jeans, that's pathetic, either it naturally happens or it doesn't. It's the same sort of thing with Chuck Taylors, back when people like the Ramones wore them, they simply wore them because they were cheap, not for the style. Then 20 years later kids buy them for mega expensive prices thinking "omgz im so punk lolz!!" when by buying them they are defeating the whole point of why they were worn in the first place.

I'm not smart enough to put my idea into words, but it involves putting rocks inside your jeans and dragging/smashing them on the ground.

True


The only rips that belong in jeans are ones that are either

A. Earned through hard labor
B. Caused by other intense phyical activity
C. Caused in the act of
------ 1. Bedding a female
------- 2. The Pursuit of said female to be bedded
D. The Massacre of The Great Horny Toad
C. For no other reasons than stated in A-D

I'm Aussie, I don't know what the f*ck Hollister is. And I actually never see people wear ripped jeans around here. It's always... Well, just normal jeans.

go trip over a few times on a road. for real. it works, i fell off a skateboard once and there was a big hole in my jeans even though it was a pretty small fall
#16
Get a skateboard and rub the griptape on the knee. And buying ripped jeans costs twice as much as doing it yourself. I went into a store, a normal pair of jeans cost $40, the same pair of jeans with a retardedly placed rip, $70.

Hmm, I never really associated Chucks with punk lol. I wear a pair of scrappy low cuts I've had for ages, I can't afford new shoes, certainly not Converse

Same goes with my jeans, I have three pairs, and I'm not buying any more. Shorts FTW! I just want to rip them because well, I'm bored, and want to try something different (for myself, I don't give a crap how many other people wear ripped jeans, because I normally wear shorts, and wearing ripped jeans would mean I'm breaking my own conformity, which must mean I'm some sort of f*cked up introverted punk wannabe who spends too much time reflecting upon myself and the way people think of me)

Just cut them a bit and then rip the whole bigger and they should fray. Or just fall over which is probably the best way to do it.

Yeah, try it if you're bored I guess then. Or just wear them heaps until they get torn.

What's with all the hate towards ripped jeans? Sorry, am I a "conformist" because i own a pair? I like them. It's an opinion. And I am not a "fag".

Seriously, what's with people and derogatory homophobic remarks nowadays?

Ya, like Kurt Cobain...


He's getting a few extra years out of a pair of ripped jeans by making it look like they were intentionally and fashionably designed that way.

brute force, best results by far, you'll need scissors for the seems though

and cut offs are never to be worn outside

My jeans ripped because I work on my knees (LOLOLLIKEGIVINGBLOWJOBS) when I clean out the walk in cooler at the place I work at. Your jeans will get naturally rip at some point.

You should stop being a cu.nt, and cut yourself.

To OP, I had to rip a pair of jeans for halloween (being a zombie), just get a pair of scissors, place the jeans on the ground outside and just hold the scissors open with a handtowel round the blade that you're gripping. Then just go mad slashing the legs of the jeans, then do a couple of sideways slashes and it will all fray and rip.

Get leglessly drunk and lairy, then when you wake up next morning, your jeans will have a rip in them. Worked for me, and several other people I know.
