Well, anyone who has ever felt exasperated at the sight of jeans manufactured with holes is about to have a full-on conniption. Nordstrom has seen the mid-aughts trend and raised it some, selling a pair of jeans that come dirty. Yep, these jeans,are replete with a filthy, fake-mud design.
They are made in Portugal, by a company called PRPS, which specializes in distressed jeans covered in holes, rips and patches.
The jeans, called "Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans" and described on Nordstrom's website as "heavily distressed," are said to "embody rugged 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." The price of pretending you've been hard at work doing manual labor? A leisurely $425.
Photos of the Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans went viral online recently, with people leaving all kinds of snarky reviews on the Nordstrom website.
"Gotta love being able to look like I have fed the pigs, helped deliver a calf, and get the tractor unstuck without ever having to leave my BMW. Love it," one person wrote.
"These are perhaps the best jeans I've ever owned. Perfectly match my stick on calluses,” another commented.
Nordstrom eventually removed the reviews, but the onslaught continued on Facebook, Twitter and the comment sections of major news sites. They even got a comment out of Mike Rowe, the famous host of popular Discovery Channel show "Dirty Jobs".
“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,” Rowe wrote on Facebook.
Ainsley Eardhardt of Fox & Friends apparently shares the same opinion. “It's for the kid who inherits the millions of dollars, the kid who doesn't want to work hard and wants to go into Nordstrom, pay a lot of money and act like they work,” she said on the show.
But if you're one of the few people who actually find these jeans cool, I've got a tip for you. You're going to love this. PRPS also makes a matching $425 fake mud-caked denim jacket. And guess what, Nordstrom is also selling that one. You're welcome!
