Cheap Monday take ripped jeans too far

Ripped_jeans

We put the concept of ripped jeans up On Trial last year, and were happy enough to acquit most ripped jeans of the charges against them. Note the word "most", though. These ones, for instance? These ones are going straight to the Fashion Police jail, they will not be passing "Go", and they will most certainly not be collecting $200.

Seriously, Cheap Monday. Seriously. Let us never speak of this again.

    I can so easily see the bottom half accidentally ripping off.

    For $200, I would want the rest of the jeans.
    With the bits cut out, you could fashion yourself a lovely mask to hide your identity!

    Sadly, I could see these walking around Wal-mart with an airbrushed t-shirt or something.

    i personally am glad to know that there is an article of clothing out there for me on those days when my knees are boiling hot but my thighs and shins are cold…i was worried that day may come and i would not have a stitch to wear

    It sure would be nice if these designers would recognize the true mind behind cutout and cutaway fashion designs. Please stop ripping me off! http://www.ericglennie.com

    If I ever see anyone wearing these, I will make it my personal mission to snip those silly knee-strings with a pair of scissors.

    OK, I have a HUGE problem with buying pre-ripped jeans in general, seeing as you could spend half as much and rip them up to your hearts content. But this??? Seriously, these designers are playing a joke on us, right?
    …Right?

    Um, Eric, honey, I honestly don’t think you’d want to be recognized for those. Just a suggestion, but maybe you’d be better off sticking to creating normal jeans. You know, the ones people will actually buy?
