Nordstrom has recently made available for sale a $425 pair of jeans.
These jeans are described as “Heavily distressed”.
Moreover, they embody the
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.
A clean looking equivalent in the same site would cost “only” $!88.
There has been outrage and scorn on twitter
On the other hand, you could argue that the outrage is misplaced and delayed. After all the more holes in a pair of jeans the more it costs.
