And even though the distressed ~lewk~ is still undeniably cool, you have to admit that wearing hole-y pants isn't the most practical winter weather choice.

Enter Shizu, a grandmother in Japan who thought her granddaughter's fashion choices looked a lil' chilly to her.

So she got out the sewing kit, as grandmas do.

Later, her granddaughter, Tomomi, came home to find that her jeans had gotten a slight upgrade...

"When I came home, she said, 'Tomomi, I patched these up for you. You can keep wearing them at home,'" Tomomi told BuzzFeed News. "I was shocked to see them 'fixed,' but at the same time I couldn't help thinking how cute my grandma was."

Her grandmother had added a patch of fabric underneath the "rip" in her jeans, and mended the frayed thread.

My heart breaks once for each tiny, perfect stitch.

Tomomi posted a photo of her grandmother and the jeans to Twitter, where it got retweeted more than 70,000 times.

All over Japan, people were touched by this undeniably adorable act of love.

They also wondered if maybe Grandma Shizu was starting a new trend...

...and encouraged Tomomi to save them forever.


After seeing the reactions, Tomomi said that her grandmother was very happy and a little embarrassed.

"This whole incident reminded me to cherish my kind grandma," Tomomi said. And now, if you'll excuse us, we need to call our grandmothers.
