This should've been posted in the Streetwear forum ...

That being said, if I'm wearing jeans with rips in them, it's because they've earned them with lots of wear.

Non-ripped. Allows me to dress them up when I need to, and keeps out the cold better during fall.

Non-ripped. And I'm also going to buck popular opinion by saying I don't like high-contrast fades or honeycombs anymore.

Both

Naturally torn jeans are valued servants and friends of inestimable maturity. New jeans perfectly acceptable form of dress for many occasions.

Heh I think artificially distressed jeans are out here now as well, in favor of the same features earned naturally from dry denim. Personally I don't really subscribe to that school but I do like the dark monochromatic look of jeans dyed many times with dark indigos before washing, that keep it w/o fading (like 5EP)

I'm still seeing some where I live. Not surprisingly, my son is baffled as to why I won't shell out $50+ for him to wear jeans that look much worse than those you can pick up at the Salvation Army (which he would NEVER consider wearing).
