Jeans … a Fashion Staple

Jeans … a Fashion Staple

by James Kelly

They’re back ... ripped jeans, that is. Is this part of the circle of life? The grunge days of the 90’s have come back to haunt us.

This summer season ripped jeans are back with a vengeance and it looks like every manufacturer is pulling out all the stops to find new ways to tear them up. Front, back, sides, no surface is sacred.

The 90’s ripped jean had its way. More of a lightly damaged look like maybe you fell down and scuffed a hole in the knee or the pocket. Today’s rip is no holes barred. Some of you would wonder how they stay on they look so fragile.

So what should you expect to pay for a less than full pair of jeans? Well you can rip it up at Old Navy for very little. $25 can get you a nice pair of stonewashed completely ripped up jeans. You can expect these to make it through the summer and that’s about it.

Calvin Klein’s start at $80 and go up. Fashionable for sure, and a pair of jeans that will last a long time.

Did you know that Gucci has jeans that sell for over $3,000? No kidding. You wouldn’t want to rip those up would you?

No matter what your budget, a pair of ripped jeans can make any outfit look cool. They’re a great change from those skinny legged Levis you got at Mark’s Work Warehouse.

Bottom line, no matter what your age, ripped is in. Over 50? You might want to go with a little less rip and more of the scuff. Either way, don’t let a little thing like looking cool stop you from getting a new pair of jeans.
