    Those cats are artists, man....

    Seriously, I didn't know that was still a thing. Show's how long it's been since I've been in a mall... or a clothing store.

    I relic my own jeans.

    Where did she pull that sword from?


    Nothing to see here. They've been doing that to jeans since I was a teen. I think it's funny the random wear in places you wouldn't normally see it.

    Old man stage wear for the rock & rolls.

    OSHA guys are a large part of the reason those jobs haven’t been in the US for decades.

    The Thor jeans are sexy though. Hot chicks and guns and rock bands. How cool can you get?

    I like relicing my guitars and jeans the old fashion way - by using them!

    Its funny that we as voters decide its important to protect workers from the big bad companies. BUT if the big bad corporations fire everybody and hire brown people to do we don't give a Flying F if the boss man mangles them or the environment.
    Maybe if we are going to pass these laws. Some good, some so f-ing stupid you want to put a bureaucrats head in a drill press, I say pass them for all products coming into the country. At least then Americans would have a fighting chance at keeping a job.
    If you buy a Chinese car it still has to pass all our drivability laws. Well if these laws are important make them pass all the similar, enviro, safety and wage laws too. And the bureaucrat costs to enforce. If we dont do that then really its all just a scam to put America out of business.

    I think the guy on the left is really quite an artisan. Nice deep but even reasonable wear. Trying to keep it real.
    The guy on the right? What a hack! The guy on the left is like an Abigale Ybarra

    Yes and if you noticed, they are using these wire brushes that just tear the vertical threads so the white horizontal one stay intact. And only tearing where the black raised plastic piece is positioned on the grey pipe sleeve. Pretty ingenious in a crude sort of way.
    I like how they have the fans to blow the fibers around. How'd you like to listen to the girl with the roto- tool all day. Holy crap!

    The EU has started down that path, but I agree 100% we should too. Either things like workers rights and the environment matter or they don’t. Why not hold all products sold in the US to the same standards and then let voters decide if it is worth paying the price tag or not?

    You are the first person I know of who ever agreed with this. I had no idea whole other countries or even a continent agreed. As a libertarian its a scary risky thing but yea. my hope is when we can't actually buy a shovel or flooring or whatever maybe then the public will take an axe handle to congress.

    At a "relic" guitar factory they tie a hitch to the building and physically drag it over the countryside to the next County, box 'em all up and send them to the warehouse.
