Distressed, cut-out or cropped — whatever the shape of jeans, clothing designers usually attempt to create a cool, tough and laid-back feel to one's outfit.
The purpose of jeans that specifically rip on your bum cheeks has been questioned by users online, who took note of the unusual look. A baffled user posted an image of the clothing item with the "distressed bum detail,' captioning it "Have they gone mad?" referring to the online retailer Pretty Little Thing.
Comments to the post and questions over the design of the jeans poured in on Twitter.

Another peculiar wardrobe items that raise eyebrows are what is called a "denim thong" and heavily cut and altered denim.
