$425 for a Pair of Dirty Jeans?

The $425 dirty jeans from Nordstrom.
Would you pay $425 for these jeans? (Nordstrom)

MUSINGS

How much would you pay for pair of old, dirty, worn out blue jeans? Nordstrom thinks that a tune of about $425 sounds about right. Seriously. At least you can get free shipping if you order online.

Made in Portugal, Nordstrom describes The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans as “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.”

Actually, what I think they meant to say was that with these jeans, you could give off the impression that you aren’t afraid of getting down and dirty without actually having to do so. Heck, at $425, you could hire your butler to roll around in your muddy backyard for you to give that same impression. Perhaps the funniest part is the washing instructions advising that owners wash cold and then line dry. Only the rich can get away with wearing dirty clothes. Ironically, the clean version of these Jeans sell for $196.
