My personal preference for jeans when I used to buy them, was always in the realm of raw denim. More so than the fact of breaking them in yourself and “telling your own story,” I just liked that they looked new and crispy.

That being the case, there’s no denying the popularity of distressed jeans so naturally it was something I thought about quite often. I never liked jeans that looked too beat up, and wanted to make something that looked a little bit more deliberate than random tears in typical stress points. I bought a Dremel kit and some sandpaper and got to work.

The name came right away. Girls have a very popular style called Boyfriend Jeans so this is my interpretation coming from a guy’s perspective. Get the joke?

I think it’s no surprise that my favourite superhero franchise is X-men…
