Fashion high

I remember when a few decades ago, as a little boy, you were embarrassed to wear a pair of trousers which had a hole somewhere, or a pants which was shearing at the fold or ends. Well, that’s no longer in vogue.

Today it’s alright to wear ‘raggedy’ pants because if you don’t wear them you are not in style. This trend with ‘pinch-hits’ for pants is the way to go. It is no longer embarrassing to wear such clothes: they are high fashion today! As a matter fact, when in times gone by there was quite a bit of shame to wear torn trousers with what was known at the time as ‘saddle patch’, has now become highly fashionable.

We cannot talk about trousers and women’s pants at this time, if we don’t talk about faded jeans or stone wash. Almost all the young ladies wear pants with holes or tears, with some taking it to the extreme by having holes or stringy patterns all over their pants. Naturally some women take this fashion overboard, having hole and tears all over.
