Wednesday, 3rd May 2017: A listing for the US$425 (RM1,846) jeans on the website of upscale department store Nordstrom has gone viral, garnering heaps of scorn from folks who presumably prefer dirtying their trousers honestly.
The PRPS Barracuda straight leg jeans “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,” according to the description of the online listing, which notes that they should be washed cold and line dried.
At first glance, the jeans look like they might have been worn by a rough and tumble construction worker, but on closer examination the “dirt,” which covers the legs, crotch and seat, appears a bit shiny.
To complete the look, there’s a matching “muddy” jean jacket, also for US$425. Mike Rowe, host of the Discovery Channel programme Dirty Jobs, blasted the jeans in a post on his blog Monday
That said, it is still one of the trendiest things to get this fashion season. The question remains, would you buy it?
