Want to reconnect with the massesi, Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom now sells mud-coated jeans for $425 that promise to show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”
Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom was previously best known for dropping Ivanka Trump’s brand back in February—unofficially out of political spite, officially because of declining sales.
The company is now desperate to ruin its own brand further by selling a pair of working class-inspired pants, so that people with $425 to spare can feel part of the masses. Per the item’s description on the website:
The jeans caused widespread mockery on social media, prompting “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe to says the pants “look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job… made for people who don’t,” Rowe wrote on his Facebook account.
He added: “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.”
A number of people also left a review on the item’s page, one saying: “These are great! Now that I’m unemployed I can still look employed with minimal effort.”
“Are you intending to poke fun at working class folks?” another reviewer asked.
