Nordstrom is now selling pre-dirtied jeans for $425. Yes, $425.
The jeans, labeled Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans, are described on Nordstrom’s site as “Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”
People have already taken to reviewing the jeans, including “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe.
“Finally – a pair of jeans that look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job…made for people who don’t. And you can have your very own pair for just $425.00,” Rowe wrote on a Facebook post that was shared thousands of times. “The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans aren’t pants. They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.”
As someone who grew up working blue collar jobs, a dad and mom that really did have to scratch and claw for anything they got, this makes me wanna puke. Don’t buy these, please…
