Shoppers in stitches over ‘distressed’ jeans – joking Freddy Krueger has been at them
Shoppers have been left in stitches over a pair of “hand-distressed” jeans that are being sold on Depop.
The pink jeans, or what was left of them anyway, were advertised in the US for the hefty price tag of $120 (£87).
However, people joked that it looked like fictional villain Freddy Krueger had been at them as the jeans went viral online.
The seller said the Levi jeans had been “hand-distressed”, but it seems like they got a bit too carried away with the scissors as the jeans barely had any material left that wasn’t ripped.
People took to Twitter to mock the jeans, as one joked: “The world’s oldest pair of pants is in better condition.”
While another added: “My foot is going right through one of those holes.”
A third quipped: “They’re not distressed they’re traumatised.”
A fourth asked: “Hand distressed by who? Freddy Krueger?” as another person suggested: “Edward Scissorhands.”
Other people also said they’d like to see a picture of a person actually wearing them.
One added: “Is there a pic of them actually wearing it? I wanna see if it’s even possible at this point.”
Depop is a fashion marketplace app where people can sell their unwanted clothes and shoes to the general public.

This includes Katie Price, who used Depop earlier this year to sell her boyfriend Carl’s old furniture for £1,500.

“So he’s selling this tables, all these chairs, the candles and everything, all in one or you can buy the chairs separate.”She added: “Carl is getting rid of this sofa as well.
She added: “Carl is getting rid of this sofa as well.
“You can see it on my Depop, with a matching chair over there. You could either buy it all as one, or you can buy them separate. And there’s also a coffee table here, which I haven’t cleaned, to match the dining table.”
