If you’re looking for the Balmain-esque look (lots of horizontal rips down both legs), fold the denim of one leg vertically, then use a pair of scissors and snip. Then use one arm of the scissors and shred the edges of the rip. It’s very therapeutic. :) Then you can chuck it in the washing machine to rip it up a bit more.

I do mine the same way as shadowplay described and add in a few little shredded bits with a cheese grater.

you can run a razor over the denim to thin it out if it’s thick… it feels so weird to be shaving fabric off your jeans but that always works for me!

use sandpaper to thin the denim a bit before ripping,looks more natural then.

Cheese grater! As strange as that sounds! It works like a charm.

use a shaving razor and scrape away till you get a hole, its good so you can choose the kind of hole you want! :)

You can use a box cutter to cut a hole and then use a boar bristle brush to make it look more natural (;

I use a cheese grater, shaving razor, blade, and scissors but what works the best is a pumice stone, no joke! I don’t even need anything else if you use a pumice stone, just put something in the pant leg to use sorta as a base.

Nail file works well too. Roughs up the rips, makes it look more rugged/natural.
