what i did to distress one pair of my jeans was attack it with a nail file. i just scratched at it with the file until i saw it wear alittle (this took about...10 minutes. haha) in a small area, and just one area, cause i thought it didnt work since it didnt turn out the way i expeceted. BUT, a couple washes later and suddenly i have a hole about the size of a loonie if you stretched it out to be more vertical. i'm not sure if the hole will stop growing...but i still wear those pants. cool cool.
theres a whole ton of ideas in that "ways to make clothes feel/look vintage" post in the discussion board.
ANYWAYS THOUGH, that was my story
and i like your jeans,
and espicially how they fit haha even if you didnt make em, just the holes XP
