What are the general feelings about men wearing distressed / ripped jeans ?  I'm not talking about to work, or to any formal type gathering.  I'm thinking their being worn when out and about on casual, non work days.  Thoughts ?  Thank you.

Too danged hot.

Personally I hate that "jersey shore" look that has become so popular for some reason. 

That being said, I do have a pair of ripped jeans. I tend to wear the jeans that I feel the most comfort in, and sadly these were the best. They were the least ripped of any in what I was after. Now, if we're talking about a pair of truly comfortable jeans...I mean, the ones we all have had for around 10 years, the back pockets are literally falling off, the fabric is softer than your wife's silk dresses because it's so thin, THAT kind of comfortable, man I envy the guy who can keep those jeans and wear them!

I think I still have a pair.  They're fine.

I think this is one of those age pieces of clothing.  < 30 go for it, but >30 not so much.  Not saying that you can't wear a pair every now and then, but I look at 30 as a more mature point in men's fashion.  No more Holister, Aero and the like.  

before I enlisted I was a bassest in a heavy metal band. I wore ripped jeans a lot

 

No.

Except for yard work and the like

I don't like them. Never did. To me they are number two on stupid looking pants ideas right behind having them hang under the wearer's ass. My ripped jeans are reserved for spreading roofing tar, painting the house, or other sloppy jobs then I pitch them. Generally they rip during such jobs and when done into the bin they go.

The only distressed jeans I wear are distressed because I have been wearing them for five or more years and can't bring myself to throw them away. 

I generally avoid  ripped jeans, and I would never recommend buying a pair of ripped jeans. If they are an old pair of jeans that you happened to have ripped, I would wear them to something that will have an activity, a bar-b-que where you know you'll be playing some touch football or the like. I wouldn't wear them to a bar, or almost anything that isn't just you and close friends.

i hate them 

If I am doing revocations or painting I see no problem in them.  As for out an about wear, it is not for me.  I see those as attire for teenagers.
