DIY Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are a trend these days. I personally like them because of its comfortability and the laid-back look (I love laid-back style!). And boy are those difficult to find and of course expensive! This Boyfriend Jeans from Levi’s costs $88! No way I am gonna spend that much for that!

Levi’s 501 Boyfriend Jeans – $88

So if you don’t mind the cost of that jeans, then by all means, go ahead and purchase that. But if you’re on a tight budget just like me, just read more as I will teach you on how to make one.


  • old or new jeans; preferably baggy men’s jeans
  • tweezers
  • scissors/cutter
  • needle

3. When you feel like its enough then start pulling the vertical threads out using your tweezers.
