"I don't believe it".
Clearly I have one foot in the grave. I was aware that my son (12) liked to have jeans which were torn so much that one of the first things he did was to tear them. However, what I was not aware of was that the free market had operated to provide pre-torn jeans with small strategically placed rips.
When I was a lad ... we did have pre-faded jeans. However, it strikes me as odd that people would actually buy clothes that are ripped. Still c'est la vie.
In the mean time my daughter has got at my computer and replaced Internet Explorer with Firefox. I am not sure yet whether I wish to revert or not.
