Nordstrom Wants to Sell You Jeans Covered in Fake Mud For $425

They're essentially like old work jeans but they're mud caked, so they look a little bit like you got caught in a rainstorm in a field somewhere.

Nordstrom is selling caked-on muddy coated jeans for a mere $425 that allegedly shows "you're not afraid to get down and dirty". "Rugged Americana" is now synonymous with a "caked-on, muddy coating".

I went on-line to investigate these jeans and they do look extremely authentic. Mud stained jeans are the latest addition to this as people are actually ready to pay such a hefty price for jeans which look like they are freshly picked from the drain. HipsterJoe said "I love that I can now fake a work ethic!"

The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch.

Now-deleted reviews on Nordstrom's site celebrated the way the jeans mimicked the fruits of hard labor, "without ever having to leave my BMW". The illusion of effort.

The responses that the unusual trousers have drawn so far might suggest that the Barracuda trousers would not be the ground-breaking success Nordstrom expects. Or perhaps, for those who actually buy them, the illusion of sanity.

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom.

Wash your clothes on the gentle cycle in cool water and even line-dry them - they'll last the longest this way. PRPS specializes in highly distressed denim covered in holes, rips and patches.

Reebok entered the fray on Wednesday by adding the "Reebok Authentic Sweat Shirt" - complete with fake sweat stains - on its website, among its legitimate offerings.

Clothing brand PRPS who created the jeans doesn't just sell muddy jeans.

If this product sounds right up your alley, head on over to Nordstrom's website, the luxury department store, and find them for yourself.
