" Check out what I found! " I told my best friend and my whole face turned in a grin. She hesitated for a second, just to press play for the next track, and turned to me wide-eyed.

" OMG! What's that for? " gazing at the saw with the yellow handle I was carrying. "Honey, you're about to witness the rebirth of my jeans."

I took all the sharp objects I found in the house to my bedroom. I decided to test their ability to make jeans look hardcore, today.

So we both got to work, on a hot Sunday afternoon. Just like at a picnic, sitting on a blanket placed on the floor ( 'cause it's easier to keep tidy ). We mastered the heavy manly steel tools like pros.

Daddy would be proud.

" Fii atenta ce am gasit!! " ii spun prietenei mele, cu gura pana la urechi. Ezita o secunda, cat sa-i dea play urmatoarei piese, si se intoarce la mine cascand ochii.

" Ce vrei sa faci cu aia? " uitandu-se impresionata la fierastraul cu manerul galben, din mana mea. " Draga mea, tocmai vei lua parte la renasterea unor jeansi. "

Am adus toate obiectele din casa, ( care n-ar trebui lasate la andemana copiilor ), la mine-n dormitor. Am decis sa le testez capacitatea de a-mi face blugii sa arate mai hardcore.

Asa am ajuns sa muncim amdoua, intr-o dupamasa fierbite de duminica. Suntem ca la picnic, pe o patura asezata pe podea ( sa ne fie mai usor de adunat scamele ) si manuim fierele astea barbatesti cu mare maestrie.

Tata ar fi mandru.

The truth is that we were playing with fire. My first attempt to "stylize" a pair of jeans ended with their burial the trash can. Hell of a sad story, but hey, it was my first try.

This time it's serious. No more playing around, because this pair I really like. I love them the way you can only love jeans: When you wear them out and they get ugly, or go out of style, or stained, yet you still keep them safe in your closet, for the sake of good times, knowing that you'll never wear them again .. Even that little wine stain on the left pocket makes you smile, remembering how tasty the night was when the tall glass, you were both drinking from, got spilled all over..

I saw this pair on a black mannequin in a shop, where the scent of denim preceded a strong male perfume. At Diesel, somewhere in Belgium. I didn't looked at the rest of the jeans that filled the walls. Nope. I was only interested in "that" pair. The one on the mannequin.

 

Here's our toys for today:

Adevarul este ca ne-am jucat cu focul. Prima mea incercare de a "stiliza" o pereche de blugi s-a sfarsit cu mine inmormantandu-i in gunoi. Ce sa fac? Nu toate-ti ies din prima.

Dar acum nu e de joaca. Pentru ca fix perechea asta imi place mult. O iubesc in acel fel, cum numai blugii poti sa-i iubesti: Atunci cand ti-se uzeaza si se uratesc, cand se demodeaza sau se pateaza si ii tii inca in dulap, de dragul vremurilor bune, stiind ca oricum nu-i vei mai purta niciodata.. Pana si pata de vin de pe buzunarul stang te face sa zambesti, amintindu-ti cat de gustoasa era seara in care s-a varsat paharul inalt, din care beati amandoi..

Am vazut perechea asta pe un manechin negru dintr-un magazin racoros, unde mirosul de denim precedea un parfum cu iz masculin. La Diesel,  undeva in Belgia. Nu m-am uitat la restul peretelui captusit cu blugi. Nu. Doar "aia"-mi trebuia. Cei de pe manechin.

 

Iata cu ce ne-am jucat astazi:

Tools

Ripped boyfriend jeans DIY DYROGUE tools

If you want your jeans to be ripped, you don't really need all of the above. But some items are truly necessary.

Grater left aside, I can't understand how I thought It would be helpful, keep in mind that you need a cutter or scissors, a pumice stone and a trencher plate.

And something to mark the area  you wish to start thinning, for example a piece of chalk or a dry soap. Drawing with a marker on your pants is a move with about 90% chance you'll regret.

Daca vrei si tu sa iti rupi o pereche de blugi, nu ai nevoie de toate cele de mai sus. Insa unele elemente chiar sunt necesare.

Lasand razatoarea la o parte, nu inteleg cum am crezut ca imi va fi de folos, tine minte ca ai nevoie de un cutter sau o foarfeca, o piatra ponce si un dog.

Si ceva cu ce sa marchezi zona pe care vrei sa o raresti, de exemplu o bucatica de creta sau un sapun uscat. Nu desena cu carioca pe pantaloni, sunt cam 90% sanse ca vei regreta miscarea asta.

Before & After

Before & After DIY Ripped BF Jeans

HOW TO

No big deal. It's really super simple.

( Nobody told me this at first. RIP)

- Mark the upcoming ripped areas. It would be best to start with smaller space and try them on before every new decision you make.

- Place the trencher plate (or any hard surface) inside the jeans, to protect the material on the other side.

- Cut multiple parallel lines, a few mm distance between them, cutter or scissors.

- Rub along the lines you cut, with the pumice. Hard! Like a man! Watch your nails and rub further.

- Insist with rubbing thepumice, or any other abrasive surface ( like a heel file, you noticedI tried a few other tools myself, hihi) perpendicular on the cuts. You want them to open up a little more.

- Try them on. Do you like the look?

- If the tear is too small, you can cut out the strips created, leaving a hole between the lines.

- You should add some rough areas on the back pockets, knees or other places that would normally show worn out traces, to make the complete look more balanced.

- Pow in the washing machine. The final step to get the"off of the shelfes" look.

- Wear them with style ..and heels .

Nu e mare filozofie. E chiar banal de simplu.

( Mie nu mi-a spus nimeni asta la prima incercare. RIP )

- Marchezi intai viitoarele zone rupte. Ar fi de preferat sa incepi cu spatii mai mici si sa probezi inainte de fiecare noua decizie luata.

- Pui dogul ( sau orice suprafata tare ) in interiorului cracului, asa incat materialul din spate sa fie protejat.

- Tai mai multe linii paralele, cu cativa mm distanta intre ele, cu cutterul sau foarfeca.

- Freci taieturile cu piatra ponce in directia linilor trasate. Tare! Fi barbat! Ai grija la unghii si freaca in continuare.

- Insista apoi cu piatra ponce, sau orice alta suprafata abraziva, ( de exemplu o pila de calcai, ai vazut ca si eu am incercat si alta unelte, hihi ) perpendicular cu taieturile. Vrei sa se desfaca putin mai tare.

- Probeaza. Iti place cum arata?

- Daca ruptura e prea micuta, poti taia din fasiile create, lasand o gaura intre lini.

- Mai adauga cateva zone rarite si pe buzunarele din spate, genunchi ( daca nu i-ai gaurit inca) sau alte zone care ar arata in mod normal o urma de uzura, ca sa arate mai echilibrat.

- Pac in masina de spalat. Acum vor iesi cateva firicele in plus si vor arata ca "din magazin"

- Poarta-i cu tocuri sau cu tupeu.

What do you think of the final look?

I, for one, am falling in love all over again.

Ce parere ai despre efectul final?

Eu, una, m-am reindragostit.
