Do you have any matching pre-muddied Fruit of the Loom tighty whities?  I've got a big date tomorrow with a German chick and I want to really impress her.

No, subby. 
Calling ugly, worn out, beat up, or poorly painted crap 'distressed' has gone too far.

Calm down, this is obviously distressing you.
 
2014-08-13 05:01:26 PM  
I find the concept in the article to be very distressing, so I guess, yes?
 
2014-08-13 05:01:54 PM  
those would drive me bananas.

but i guess they could be fun to wear into someone's house. "YOU'RE GOING TO RUIN THE WHITE CARPET!"

Let me just say people who buy trainers/running/nike anything and insist on keeping them spotless are idiots. Running shoes are meant for one thing, running! If you have a pair older than 1 year that aren't beat to shiat you are failing those shoes and you should just drop the pretenses and go buy some dress shoes.

I have always longed for pre-stained white shirts. I mean, why wait until the first time I wear it anyway? If it just came out of the package that way, it would be far less worrisome trying to keep it perfectly white.

Thats th only reason I would get them. To just see the look on moms face before she hunts me down with a knife.

I remember a speech class in college where a guy forgot it was his day to delivery an informative speech.
He gets up there, takes his shoe off, sets it on the podium and proceeds to wing it describing every noteworthy place his shoes have taken him since he purchased them.  From what I remember they were adidas...white with green stripes.

Not sure the grade he received, but it was damn entertaining and actually flowed from one point to the next.

I guess so. I take care of my "exercise shoes" so I have gotten five years out of the last two pairs I've had. I lost the previous pair; they weren't worn out. I'm probably in the top 1% fitness level for my age for strength and endurance, so it's all a matter of taking care of your things.

Distressed clothing never made sense to me.

(I grew up poor, all of our clothing was distressed, Having a brand new clean pair of jeans was a luxury.)

So let me get this straight, you want me to pay more money for jeans that come farked up already because it's stylish?

Please, my jeans are fresh and clean.

While I do not claim to be in the top 1% of my age group, at 44 I do manage to run 20 miles a week and at 145 lbs I am not exactly hammering my shoes, but after six months I can feel them go flat and my arches and feet hurt if I do not replace them.
 
2014-08-13 05:24:55 PM  
Shouldn't they be in blue? Yes, navy blue?

You can't make 'em shine, well most the time.

shiat, just spend a few minutes on any baseball field and your brand new shoes will be legit permanently stained.

So your only choices for the grocery store are dress shoes and beat up exercise shoes?

/has one pair for non-exercise casual and one pair for exercise and a waterproof pair for those situations

Hell, I've got some "distressed" work khakis that I'm willing to part with. Retro JCPenny look. And the soy sauce stain means I'm culturally sensitive, not that the local Chinese place uses crappy boxes.
 
2014-08-13 05:28:09 PM  
My clothing is NOT distressed. It's just mildly perturbed.

But seriously, I'll buy good, clean jeans and clothes, then earn every rip, patch, stain and scuffed heel, thank you very much.

When my blue jeans are ready for replacement, I wear them for a couple weeks without washing them and then put them up on eBay as distressed jeans.


Fifteen bucks a pair... all day long...

Are you supposed to wash them more than that? I wash mine like once every 2 months or so. I hate washing them because it makes them uncomfortable for at least a week after.

One of my favorite jokes is to go to a clothing store, look through a rack of distressed jeans, and proclaim "This whole rack is defective!"

Well I should note that I only wear my jeans once or twice a week, sometimes less.

I wash them when they get filthy. How long that takes depends on what I've been doing.

If they were some garish neon color, it might be kinda cool. They just had to go with brown. A fake brown at that.

I really really hate the current look of some women's tops, where they're so worn out that you can see through them. They're just gauzy t-shirts. And I thought the worn-out jeans were bad. Those shirts are ridiculous.
 
2014-08-13 05:54:43 PM  
They should go over well with the SUV driving soccer moms and the monster 4X4 drivers who never take their jacked up toys anywhere rougher than the interstate.

Yeah, shiny and all one color with very deliberate looking smudge pattern. I guess I don't mean 'fake brown', I mean fake-distressed.

Back when "Acid washed jeans" were a thing I came up with the idea of nitric acid-washed jeans.

Basically, when you soak cellulose in nitric acid you get guncotton, a fast explosive used in munitions and the flash-paper that magicians use.

Would have been even better in corduroy.

zip...zip... zip.... PAFFFFF!!!

/ the world would be so much better if I were a mad scientist.

// never really understood the idea of distressed. Christ, I have boots and pants that would command thousands at Hot Topic.

$195 for some tennis shoes? For that price, they better come with Ana Kournikova in them.

We always thought "acid washed" meant we should take a couple hits of purple microdot and watch the little cartoon critters climb out of the washing machine.

Good times... good times...

I would say a horrible idea. They charge more to bang it up.

This is a new guitar:

But those shoes . . .
