Despite the fact that jeans have existed since 1873 — outliving even the greatest of grandparents — many aren’t on board with trendy updates of the classic pant. Ripped jeans, in particular, have been causing dismay among grandmas all across social media.
For some, distressed jeans sparked anxiety over family finances.

These grandmas were just plain disappointed.
My grandma just asked the typical question about my ripped jeans. "Did you buy those like that? I would never buy jeans like that."

"I've often seen bad things but I've never seen anything worse. A proper disgrace." -my grandmother in reference to my sisters ripped jeans.

One fed-up grandmother took matters into her own hands, according to a trusted source: “Meet my 90 y.o grandma who sewed my cousin’s fashionable ripped jeans bc she thought they were actually ripped LOL.”
And although one grandmother called granddaughter Kathleen Slesnick Kauffman‘s ripped jeans “sad” because “you used to be so flawless” — and even expressed concern that the holes would swallow the woman’s leg whole — Kauffman still found the matter hilarious.
