I'm 50-50 serious too. I remember mocking the idea of bottled water. Now I partially wish I would've invested in it back then.

Oh, I found a basic example of these kinds of jeans. These are "only" $278 a pair, and they come with holes and cut/"torn" cuffs.

HAHA omg that's insane but it's NORDSTROMS! What do you expect? That place has always had overpriced "fashion" that the rich love.

Have you ever been in one of these stores? The price of everything is insane and overpriced! It's beyond hilarious taht people will actually pay for crap like this and they will pay what some people make in a week on a pair of jeans!

As for the other pairs that cost alot. I will defend some brands because the cost is well worth the make and quality and for those who have a hard time finding jeans that fit right when you have thicker areas, the more expensive designer brands tend to have styles that fit. I buy all my designer stuff at thrift shops! Heck I get GREAT deals.

I know! And the bad part is, most of it is no better than what comes out of the tap or a cheap filter.

The reviews on that site you linked are so funny.




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.




These jeans are built Ford-tough for the hipster who is built Prius-weak. Look like you are a self-reliant, capable man rather than the sniveling lady boy you truly are. Two thumbs up for down-home authenticity.

I Have bags of old used work gear i need to drop at the clothes bins...hmmm maybe ill start my own line of used work gear as well as jeans/trousers i have t-shirts, jumpers, fleeces, boots, socks etc.... i'll be a millionaire in no time


On a serious note WTF i cant blame the company selling them though, if people are stupid enough to pay £350 for some jeans that have been made to look like you have been rolling around in sh*t all day then more fool them... i on the other hand could get a decent new set of jeans and t-shirts/shirts for each day of the week and still have change for a meal out and a pint or 2 with £350 to spend.

I just read further on the Nordstrom site that the jeans are made in Portugal.
My hubby is Portuguese...it's a sign!!!

Ka-ching! "Jacy's Man Pants for Sniveling Lady Boys" coming soon.

Wish I could give you more S&F's for this thread...I am beyond amused!

There was a generic bottled water company out here. It said on the label that it got its water from a municipal source in a different county in our state lol. So it was literally tap water. Maybe I should bottle some tap water from out here then sell it as "Authentic Hood Water: 100% Street Cred Guaranteed!". $5 per 20oz bottle sound about right?

I'm thinking about checking eBay just to see if it's viable on a small scale. It can't hurt to look...

Please report back with your findings, we can all partner up for the size variations.

A small part of me is actually annoyed though, that some pansy-ass rich kid is spending $500+ to LOOK like he works hard, meanwhile the real hard-working dudes have to buy $8 jeans from the thrift store.

That is absolutely outrageous, but unfortunately rather predictable.

As we move ever further from a time where work means labour, rather than standing about with ones thumb lodged in ones ringpiece, those who have been guided into employment which does not provide them a natural, effort intensive workload, a calorie burning, muscle shredding, gut tearing workload, will begin to seek other ways to validate the possession of their man card.

In all seriousness though, this is precisely as stupid as wearing pre-ripped jeans, and paying extra for the holes.

Its also worth mentioning that denim is supposed to be working persons clobber. It is supposed to be hard wearing, flame proof, proof against liquid ingress up to a certain saturation point, and difficult to penetrate with sharp fragments of flying metal, launched from cutting wheels and the like. It is not meant to be a fashion accessory, but a working material, of great use to those whose livelihoods bring them into contact with hard wearing situations. Stone washed, pre-ripped, and now faux manual...

It is a great shame that denim has been taken up by the sort of fool who would purchase these jeans in particular, but also a great shame that denim was ever taken up as a fashion accessory at all. Personally speaking, I would love to be able to purchase work trousers made of the real, old school, hard wearing material, without spending hundreds of pounds on them. But they simply do not make denim of high enough quality in terms of thickness, strength and durability of construction, priced for the common, working man.

Some vintage stores will pay a great deal for original examples of old school labels.

Could be worth a root around in the closet that time forgot!

Not much difference between that and pre scuffed leathers or bashed about guitars that look like you have been gigging with them for years.

.......or maybe you won't be surprised at all. I know I'm not. They now have a pair of jeans, for only $425, that make you look like you did a hard day's work....and you don't have to lift a finger. Well, other than to get your wallet out.
Seriously? Has it really come to that? That people are so afraid of actual work, I mean the get your hands dirty, sweaty, pounding, hammering, grub in the dirt, work, that they are willing to pay that?
Has the illusion of work become more important than the work itself?
Now, I know these are mostly for the well to do fashion plate, who wants to have that rugged look, but, how many kids are going to want them [ and bug the living crap outta their parents ] because they're the "in" thing and I Just Gotta Have'em or I won't Be Cool MOOOOM.
I can see one of mine asking ..[ well not really, they know better ] and me just throwing them a pair of Levi's and saying "Go change the oil in my truck, you'll be in fashioncancan a few minutes"

shop.nordstrom.com...

mikerowe.com...


This morning, for your consideration, I offer further proof that our country’s war on work continues to rage in all corners of polite society. Behold the latest assault from Nordstrom’s. The “Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans.” Finally – a pair of jeans that look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job…made for people who don’t. And you can have your very own pair for just $425.00.


ETA - Oh and while you're at it, click on the Nordstrom's link, scroll down a bit and tell me, do you see anything that makes those other jeans worth $200 to $400?

LMAO...I just read this review on the Nordstrom site.


These jeans work so you don't have to...

You must be doing something right if you can afford those jeans. Working smarter instead of harder, I guess.

Too true, most people who's jeans actually look like this at the end of a hard days graft more likely than not could not afford to spend £350 on jeans that look good let alone for some crap like this.

I would so buy these. Then I would look like I knew what I was really talking about when I am barking orders at my gardener or stable boy. Worth it.
