Weird Methods Used To Make Brand New Jeans Look Old

This story was originally published on Gizmodo

From Carson Nicely, this fun peek inside a factory that makes jeans shows the creative methods a manufacturer uses to create a pair of distressed denim. They spray paint colour on them, mark up some fake whiskers on the front of the pants, tumble the jeans with a bunch of rocks and basically mutilate the hell out of a brand new pair of jeans in order to create a worn in look.

You also get to see the little details getting added to each pair too (like attaching rivets) and watch them get comically blown up with air. It all adds up for a pretty interesting look into how to make a pair of jeans.
