MIAMI – Are we that lazy as a society?
Department store giant Nordstrom is now selling fake muddy jeans to make it appear that you're not afraid to work, but without the actual working.
The PRPS jeans are called the "Barracuda Straight Leg" and look like they've put in a hard day on the job in the mud. However, the person wearing the jeans will actually pay $425 for the honor of fooling the public.
According to the Nordstrom website, the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that's seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on coating that shows you're not afraid to get down and dirty."
Many of the comments on the site ridicule Nordstrom.
HipsterJoe writes, "I love that I can now fake a work ethic! Can I get one with fake oil stains? I want to pretend to be a car guy!"
While RuralEconomist chimes in, "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."
