.......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 fashion in a few minutes"
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...
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.

Only an ass would by a pair of pants for 450.00 bucks. What an idiot.
I'm going to start a Jeans Co. and call it KISS MY ASS. And on every back pocket it's gonna say KMA.
And then when it's super 'popular' i'm gonna raise the price slowly from 40 bucks to 500.00
After that, I'll wait a few mths and then i'll have a going out of idiot sale and sell them off for 20 bucks a pair, and laugh at all the idiots who bought my Jeans for 450.00. I will Jean Shame Them lmfao!

Yeah, I still can't figure out what a "war on work" even means. Every technological advancement can be seen as a "war on work" because it can make some form of work irrelevant or less necessary.
Besides, doesn't he make endorsement videos for Ford trucks? Why's he endorsing vehicles instead of riding a bicycle? War on physical work! Then again, why ride a bike instead of letting horses work to pull his carriage? War on work! In fact, why have horses do the work for him when he could man up and walk or pull his own carriage? War on work!
(Ok, I admit those examples suck. But the point still stands. "War on work" is a ridiculous concept.)
