After debuting some ridiculous “mom jeans” with a clear knee earlier this year, the internet is reacting to these men’s “Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans,” which are selling for $425 online.

According to the product description, they come already dirty:

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.

So far, reaction hasn’t been positive. Mike Rowe, the guy from “Dirty Jobs,” said Nordstrom’s latest offering is proof of America’s war on work.

“Finally – a pair of jeans that look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job… made for people who don’t,” Rowe said in a Facebook post that quickly went viral. “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.”

Forget about the $425 price tag, would anyone really buy jeans coated with fake mud? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
