Nothing says summer like a pair of cut-off shorts that you can wear from the beach to brunch and beyond, but let’s face it: not everyone wants to drop their hard-earned money on designer jeans. If you’ve got a pair of cheap old jeans that are unloved in the back of your wardrobe, pull them out and find the nearest pair of scissors. Refinery29′s stylish staff experimented with 7 pairs of jeans and 7 different styles of diy cut-off shorts. We’re loving the wide leg cropped trend, among others. Which is your fav?
Hixsept Stranger Hand Bleached Jeans are setting a new standard for standing out in men’s denim (and forget about embellishments. Forget they ever, ever existed). These hand-bleached raw selvedge jeans are one of a kind due to the nature of their individual modification. We love a good DIY. But as Selectism so accurately reminds us, “Of course, you could use your own hands and a bucket of bleach on a pair of your own jeans, but the odds seem incredibly slim that you would be able to forge bleach spots that look like exploding nebula”.
Buy them at Por Vocação.
