How To Look Filthy Dirty,

if you are filthy rich,

 buy a pair of jeans with fake mud attached! I kid you not, the latest trend of Nordstrom would have you believe is to wear their range of jeans called the Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans, they are apparently brand new, but make you look like you’ve just finished feeding your pigs, or you just fell in a ditch after a wild night of partying, they look filthy, but that’s apparently the point, as Nordstrom claims the mud “shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”

 the description on the Nordstrom website explains that the mud-caked jeans “embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action.” 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, 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 trust fund baby. 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 wait there is more, who could possibly get down and dirty without a matching jacket? yes there is one, so how much to look like a worker? well both are the same price, for a mere £330 or at today's rate $425 each you can be in the height of dirt! for the penny pinchers amongst us there is no mention made if there is a discount for buying both jeans and jacket together.
