How to ‘Bang’ the Perfect Distressed Hem According to an Expert!

To continue all things denim, we at Yahoo Style are always on a quest for the perfect hemming tricks and where the best place to hem our favorite denim is. However, with Vetements’ uneven denim and Marques’ Almeida’s the-more-fray-the-better style, a raw and uneven hem is the only way to wear your jeans these days!
