Much as I enjoy taking on DIY projects, distressing jeans has not been my strongest suit. My previous attempts at this have all resulted in tattered denims that just looked contrived. Store-bought distressed jeans from the high street don’t appeal to me either; there’s something just unnatural with wearing denims distressed exactly the same way as hundreds of other people’s jeans around the world. That is why my discovery of these jeans felt like such a blessing:
vintage Levi’s 519′s from Harajuku
Soft, frayed, and beautifully worn in, they just feel like they have a story behind every hole and slash. Now, it would be nice if it were the story of my life that was behind the jeans, but I simply don’t have the patience to wear the same pair of pants for such a long period of time so as to have them age this way.
