Nordstrom is charging $425 for 'dirty' jeans

If you missed your chance to drop $85 on this swanky rock before it sold out, worry not -- today, you're in luck.

You can now waste $425 on Nordstrom's dirty, mud-caked jeans to satisfy all your superfluous money-spending needs.

According to the "Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans" description, the "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."

Basically, the jeans make you look like you're a hard worker when you're not in the slightest -- and people who work hard for a living are taking offense to that.

Mike Rowe, host of the Discovery Channel series 'Dirty Jobs,' took to Facebook on Monday to slam the jeans, calling them "proof that our country's war on work continues to rage in all corners of polite society."

"The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans aren't pants," Rowe continued. "They're not even fashion. They're a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic."

Listen to the man, people. Earn your dirt stripes the real way, not the retail way.
