I love distressed jeans [though, I don't wear mine very much] and I love black jeans. WHY DIDN'T I HAVE THESE JEANS SOONER?! Anyway, this is just a whole new level of black pants for me! Taking my casual level down. One rip at a time. I love where the jeans hit on my ankles. Perfect for spring and summer. Just a tip, size up a couple sizes in these jeans! I normally wear a 26; these are a size 28 and still so tight!!
