In an effort to be consistent in dress expectations, we will use the “finger tip length when hands are held normally at the sides” rule for rips and tears in jeans where skin is exposed. This still allows you the choice to wear fashionable ripped jeans and is better aligned with the “finger tip” expectation that is used for dresses, shorts, etc. This idea came from a Senior, and we certainly appreciate the input.
