    Jeans With Holes

    Obvious: This Bear is a geek. Been known to wear shiny new blue jeans, not yet washed, sometimes even with the cuffs turned over / rolled-up.
    _____

    Observation 1 - At my workplace we have a rule in our handbook indicating that warehouse employees can not wear torn or frayed clothing, including jeans with holes. Yes, I know that jeans with holes has been a fashion staple for years. Even Katie buys the pre-washed denim with holes. Interesting.

    Observation 2 - Here in Swanton the school board released their dress code rules. At first they said, no clothing with holes. Then they changed it to holy clothing okay, from the knees down. Then they changed it again.

    We have no skool-age kids, so this doesn't affect us. Still interesting.

    Typically, I think it is kind of trashy. It depends, however, on the nature of the rips or holes.

    Examples:
    1- Dirty hippy jeans that haven't been washed in the past 50 uses and feature rips up the back leg from the shoe up to the knee, holes in the knees so large that there is more skin exposed than jean, and giant holes in the butt where I can see your equally dirty underwear = Not hot.

    2- Slightly worn jeans where the fabric is a bid faded and you can almost see through it, not so bad.

    Bear. Shiny new unwashed jeans? No. RJ has a pair like that and I haven't said anything but.... well, he'll read this.

    Holes in jeans, I don't get that. It's like paying for bras with saggy elastic.

    Jeans with holes: no problem.

    Jeans with no holes worn around the knees with full boxer (or briefs) showing, usually accompanied by full or partial moon: DEFINITELY a problem.

    I wear jeans with holes if I'm having a grubby house or yard work day. I don't mind if they're frayed a little around the hem but otherwise in good shape.

    I own jeans with holes- but there werent like that when i bought them- they were 'pre stressed' and over time with lots and lots of wear holes appeared.

    The look grungy and industrial so i dont wear them to work- i wear them to be a hipster

    I don't really think jeans should be worn to work (at least in an administrative setting), so that is kinda moot, but I don't have a problem with jeans with holes otherwise.

    They only reason that jeans should have holes is because they've been worn out. People who purchasing pre-holed jeans are annoying.
