The main jean were found at Vinnie’s North Belmont with tags still on. They were ankle length, legging fit and had deliberate torn distressed look . Another pair from the last chance $2 rack at Salvos next door and off cuts from a previous pant conversion project were used to create the patchwork fabric from which the flares were created. The color-scheme was kept monochrome to make it a more versatile. Some of the tears were mended to express care for the fabric/appearance.
"It is non - sensical that we are willing to buy brand new clothing that has been purposefully torn for style. So most of the tears have been mended and patched. There message in this outfit that our clothing is worthy of care, that there is comfort in worn-in and faded jeans."
