Some people will actually use perfectly good money to buy jeans that have been ripped in advance, aka “distressed”. These Armani jeans are $305. The only thing that is truly distressed in this situation is the sanity of the buyer. If you truly want your jeans to have that “lived in” look, then you can buy jeans and live in them. If, for some strange reason, you can’t manage this, then go to your local GoodWill shop and buy some used jeans. Or send your jeans to Attitude Media, with a check for $200, and we’ll rip some holes in them. Lots of options here folks.
