While lamenting the sorry state of my wardrobe, I got to thinking about what made an item wearable or not. And when I say "visible stain or tear", I mean visible to the world. For instance, if you had a tear on the inside lining of your jacket (where it would not likely be seen by the rest of the world), I would call that an "invisible tear". But, if that same tear was on the outside of the jacket, I would call that a "visible tear".
