From riches to rags

 

Sir, – Could anyone explain what is even remotely attractive in the sight of young people wearing ragged torn jeans? Designers must be laughing up their sleeves knowing that these deluded youngsters are spending money on scruffy, rent garments – and the more tears in them, the more expensive they are. What a rip-off! – Yours, etc,
