Zoo Jeans: Stylishly Ripped by Dangerous Animals

Forget acid washed jeans! Those are so passé. The new "in" look is animal-shredded jeans.

In order to raise funds for the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan, volunteers and zoo supporters of the Mineko Club wrap old tires and giant rubber balls with sheets of denim, and let lions, tigers, and bears "play" with them. They then recover the ripped denim and sew them into Zoo Jeans.

The first batches are up for auction, and one series - the Zoo Jeans Model T1, which have been expertly ripped by tigers - have fetched upwards of a thousand dollars.
