Here’s how to distress jeans

The sweetest thing about the distressed trend is that it can be done by yourself. It allows you to add personality and your own personal touch.

It gives your denim a lived-in feel.

There are two ways to go out about it. You can keep it clean and your jeans a nice cut at the knee.  Or you can do a blown out knee where there’s more distressing involved.

Left is minimal distressing. Right is with a blown out knee.

#1 tip? Take your time, start small and adjust. If you don’t like how it looks, you can always adjust accordingly.

Let’s Get Started

Step 1: Choose how distressed you want your jeans and where you want it.

Step 2: Put on your jeans and take chalk or a pen to mark the area you want to work on. The blown out knee should start above your knee, not right at your knee cap.

Step 3: Start distressing. Cut the spots you marked. The key is to pull the threads apart so it’s more destroyed and lived-in.

Step 4: Give em a good wash. It will always look better and less stiff once it’s gone through the washer.

PRESS
Sully-Wong-Gotstyle-Hypebeast-TheBrightestHour

Gotta love some good press! Today, we learned that our passion project got featured on global powerhouse Hypebeast thanks to an amazing photo series done by Toronto streetstyle photographer @TheBrightestHour.

In 2014, Gotstyle launched the #LupulStyle initiative with Maple Leafs superstar Joffrey Lupul to raise money and awareness for the True Patriot Love foundation. A Canadian not-for-profit organization designed to help military families in need. Even though that phase of our initiative through #LupulStyle project came to a close and raised over 25k our commitment to TPL and our veterans never did. To keep the momentum alive we teamed up with our good friends George and Henry of Sully Wong to create an exclusive commemorative digi-camo sneaker that celebrated our Canadian Armed Forces and continued our commitment to them.

By purchasing a pair digi-camo sneakers in-store or from our online store Gotstyle will donate a portion of the sales to the True Patriot Love foundation.
