Crazy to stupid! Why do we spend time and money trying to look poor and dirty? If this is fashionable today, then give me the good old days when neat and clean was preferred.

I have never understood why anyone would want to ruin a pair of jeans to get this foolish look. If I had anything that looked that worn and dirty I would throw it away or cut it up and use it as rags for cleaning. :(
