  • well, with my body type, I don't need any rips calling more attention to my large butt, hips and thighs :) LOL but I can see how they would look attractive on the right body shape...

    IMO why would I want to buy something that is torn/broken/destroyed? :)

  • Maybe if you're in your teens or early 20s they're a do, but I don't know about women my age.

    I don't know how old you are, but that should be a consideration.

  • I think they look like shit no matter what age you wear them. They look like you can't afford a good pair of jeans. I was voted Best Dressed in high school and I NEVER wore the ripped jeans. I wouldn't spend that much money on those brand name pants when you could get a pair at a cheaper store and do it yourself. Most of those clothes are ugly anyway. Lol.

  • I think right now rips aren't in at the moment. They were about 4 years ago, these days I don't see the girls at my college wearing them so much anymore.

  • I prefer the naturally distressed jeans. Ya know..... the ones you wore so much the holes came naturally. I don't see the point in spending that much money for something that looks old. Same with the dirty looking jeans. They just look like they haven't been washed in a very long time.

  • A DONT DO IT! A DONT SPEND THE MONEY! A DONT LOOK BACK TO WHEN YOU WERE A TEEN! Im 21 and I have never owned a pair of A&F ripped jeans, I think they are tacky, and why bother putting money into a pair of jeans that are torn and worn! Some purposly put deffects in jeans look good but no tears and holes! PLEASE!

  • I used to wear em when I was in high school and I used to love them.
    Now I think they are more for teens!

  • I think they are back in for teens anyway. My 14 yr old son likes to wear them.

  • i absolutely love torn jeans, just not too torn up and destroyed ya know, but i would never buy them from those places. Way too expensive.
