Look man. I’d love to have that pair of tattered denim that just happens to fit me perfect due to me rocking them almost on a daily basis for 5 years straight. Unfortunately, that’s super unrealistic. 1) because I think cleanliness is next to Hovaness, and 2) my weight fluctuates like crazy so I’m constantly getting pants resized.
Eventually I came to the conclusion that I just had to distress my own denim to get that broken in look. Wear and tear on pockets, a few holes, etc etc. Thankfully there’s this video, which will make your own level of distressing feel more personal, and not like you just ran a belt sander on it (which I’ve tried). Pretty straightforward. Good luck folks.
