Jesus Jeans

What does Jesus Jeans mean?

Jeans that have a lot of holes

Jesus Jeans are basically jeans with a lot of holes in them, giving them a “holy” appearance. They first gained popularity during the grunge era of the 1990s and have been in and out of fashion ever since.

You can buy these jeans brand new, or they can naturally develop a Jesus-like look over time due to wear and tear. It’s not uncommon to see jeans that have been worn in to the point where they’ve morphed into Jesus Jeans.

Many famous people have been seen sporting Jesus Jeans. For instance, grunge icons like Dave Grohl and Chris Cornell, as well as numerous country musicians, are known to have rocked this style.
