What the f**k is the point of ripped jeans?

I don’t get it, why would anyone want to voluntarily wear ripped jeans? It’s just signaling to the world you don’t give a shit. Why would anyone feel good about owning, let alone wearing out in public a pair of ripped jeans?

It’s not trendy, you look like a slob. Even moreso than just wearing the slobbiest of all lazy clothes, sweatpants. At least some joggers can be classy, well made, and even blend in to look like something of a higher class. With ripped jeans, you just look like you haven’t done any self-care in about three years. You’re not fashionable, you look homeless and trashy.

One or two slits is trashy enough, but the ones with entire knees missing?!?! Don’t even get me started. Oh, and God forbid you step out with ones that have the entire thigh just cut out. Have you no shame?

Aren’t you cold? Aren’t you wearing pants to keep you warm? Why in the world would you walk around with pants that literally don’t do anything but make you look like a raggedy bum living under a freeway overpass?

You wanna know the last time I wore pants with holes in them? When I was in fifth grade and my pants were ripped from sliding around the blacktop at recess. Is that what adults who wear ripped jeans are like? Fifth graders who have no impulse control nor a sense of the way to properly dress in society?

Nobody has ever looked at someone wearing skinny jeans and gone, “Yeah, wow they look accomplished. They look like they got their head on straight.” What is the appeal? Pants, at the most, should have four holes in them. One for the waist, two for the ankles and one for your fly (which, unzipped, might even count as part of the waist hole). Have some class and respect and get some normal pants, please. End of my rant.
