CUT IT OUT
volcom gets the patch.
We're all for DIY, but when it comes to denim, sometimes a little elbow grease doesn't get you very far. If you love distressed jeans but can't commit to the sandpaper / boiling water / cheese grater routine to wreck them yourself, there's a summer present waiting on the Volcom website.
It's their Bonn short, shredded on one side, patched on the other, and with a braided waistline reminiscent of Chloe's classic high waist jeans from the Stella McCartney era.
