I always believed in wearing out your own denims instead of buying them ready washed incl. patches etc. But I appreciate that some people do not want to wait that long. I can't remember how long I've had these shorts but first time I had them in my KEIR collection was Spring Summer 2007. So 7 years of wear and now they are perfect :-)

Now that mending, light washes and ripped jeans are getting another run in the fashion cycle why not revisit the jeans you might want to throw out? When I started collecting my friends unwanted jeans for my re-Cut, re-Work and re-New project someone gave me these really cool jeans from GAP. I like the way the mending has been done very hand crafted on a single stitch machine. I did the mending with the zig zag. Some part of these jeans are currently being remade into a jacket. Not quite sure what I'll do with the waist part yet.
