Last Christmas, I got a pair of nice Bongo jeans. They flair at the bottom and a few weeks ago they started ripping. At first it was just threadbare areas and then one of the creases it came with ripped. I sewed it and the other holes up. Then the crease next to it ripped. I sewed it up and a few days later, the third rip at a crease on the same leg.
Yesterday, I cut out some colorful fabric for patches and started sewing them on. I finished this morning and I am at the ready for more holes.
Take this as a warning you lovers of machine ripped jeans.
