Apparently now the latest trend in “teenwear” is an expensive item of clothing that looks like it’s destined either for the washing machine or the rag pile–but no, you buy it that way!

I’m not letting my kids see this article. As it is, I have to pry away their torn/stained clothing from their clutching little fingers, and HIDE it in the trash. I have to HIDE their outgrown things so I can pass them along/save them for the next younger child. I have to fight with them to put on a clean, non-ripped shirt before we leave the house. And now people are buying clothes with purposely-set-in underarm stains?

(It’s satire, but the idea still grosses me out.)
