The 80s totally ruled, as did Def Leppard and their fashion sense. Designing your own unique, personalized stonewashed jeans is a total breeze. Some friends of mine recently asked where I get my super authentic 80s style Def Leppard look. And while some would have you believe the Def Leppard look starts with ripped jeans, those of us truly in the know, know it is almost impossible to properly stonewash a pair of pre-ripped jeans, so we never rip them before stonewashing them! And you know, just buying stonewashed jeans from Macy’s is for the feeble willed. A true Def Leppard fan and connoisseur of the most rocking decade ever, the 1980s, should be able to wash his or her own stonewashed jeans. Don’t you agree? Or are you still holding on relentlessly to your Fedora from the beat generation days?
Stonewashing jeans is probably simpler than you previously thought. To begin, just take any pair of boring old jeans and soak them in salt water for 2 days. I prefer salt water from the Dead Sea, as it contains the highest concentrate of sodium nitrates of any salt water on Earth, but I also take frequent trips to the Middle East so this is no problem for me.
You will probably have to settle for some run of the mill Atlantic of Pacific Ocean salt water. Its ok, it will do just fine. Most importantly, you won’t use salt water from the Gulf of Mexico, unless you plan on using your new stonewashed jeans as a political statement against the horrifying effects of the BP debacle going on down there. But alas if you have news outlets at your disposal to pull something like this off, you are probably too rich to be stonewashing your own jeans. So go get them at Macy’s punk!
