Do you remember when one would be embarrassed if there was a hole in one's clothing? How did we go from being embarrassed to now it is the style or fashion to go around with holes in one's clothing? Have you seen it? What do you think your grandmother would think? What do you think about it?

Certainly my mother would be horrified at some of today's fashions.

My mother and my grandmothers would have had a fit with jeans like that. I know our son's jeans, even though he is a marketing analyst, have frayed bottoms. All in his office wear jeans to work. Freaks me out.

It is a different world, isn't it? I have a little hole in my jeans and will wear it a couple more times and will get rid of them. Maybe I can make a few more holes and try to sell them as fashion jeans?

@1hopefulman The jeans my husband uses to work in the garden are full of holes around the knees, I told him to sell them.

I like it , because even if there are already holes in your pants , you can still wear them. And they are more expensive than the ordinary pants. ha ha ha

True, but would you like to be seen by your friends in clothes having holes?

@1hopefulman Yes, provided the holes are just within the leg area which is the fad , not the butt nor front area.

I was glad when having holes in one's jeans became fashionable. I only had two pairs of jeans, and they were both old. I didn't have the money to buy a new pair, so I got a kick out of wearing jeans that were simply old and threadbare. No way would I buy already ripped jeans; my jeans got holes the good 'ol fashioned way!

There is a good side to this fashion. I wonder if it will last or it is just a passing thing?

I think the clothing has a hole or holes is a kind of fashion. It may be even much more expensive than your brand new clothing. I know it doesn't make a sense but this is so called fashion. Of course it doesn't suit me at all.

There is a huge change in fashion sense and style in last couple of decades. I think elderly people also became used to it because they also see this and so they must be neutral only

fashion is something which comes and goes by time. so people in a given time frame find it not so appealing when something new comes up as new fashion trend. mine case is also like that, now hairstyles are very weird for me, but latest guys they are cool

I have seen tools that help you to make those holes in your jeans ! I can understand some tasteful holes and rips . . . but sometimes there's one too many or too big and in the wrong spot - those are the embarrassing ones that I wouldn't wear.

There is no way that I am not going to buy tools to make holes in my clothes when I can get the holes by catching my clothes on something sharp for free. I'm not that gullible!

To me it looks like this fashion should be called the homeless or hobo jean fashion. I don't like it at all. The only good thing is that if I have holes in my clothes I don't have to mend them

I find it humorous especially in regard to fashion as paying for intended rips in the clothing is ridiculous--- just wear out clothes until they are thread bare and you pay nothing !

That's how impatient some people are. They can't wait for rips to appear naturally and so are willing to pay extra money to have them quicker.

Fashions styles change all the time. I remember when I was in middle school like 7th grade myself and like two other friends had converses and everyone made fun of us for having them and called them boat shoes. Next year in 8th grade everyone had them and the kids who made fun of us for wearing them now had them too. Some people are just ahead of the trends./crowds.

The people around me often dress embarrassed pants , they say such pant not only fashion ,but also are breathable. I haven't wear such pants,but my grandmother consider that they have to wear the embarrassed cloth when they were young,because they were poor at that time.And she can't understand those people who dress embarrassed cloth and wear white hair.
