Nordstrom just redefined “distressed jeans” with their new and controversial clothing design — jeans with fake mud.
The online clothing store had recently launched the fake mud jeans, selling each for $425.
If you’re still unsure what a fake mus jeans is, it’s basically just a pair of jeans accentuated by brown color fabric paint to make it look like you’ve just rolled into a puddle of mud because fashion.
“Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty,” reads Nordstrom’s fake mud jeans web page.
People on the internet were quick to criticize the product, not just because people in general wouldn’t want to wear clothes that look dirty but also because the price was too hefty for something that makes one look like they had an accident after 2 cups of cappuccino and a burrito.
Hey @Nordstrom I just ate a chili and shit my pants. Love to run some ideas past you to get these bad boys in stores in time for Fall!DM me!
