Fake Mud Jeans

Just when you think liberals can’t possibly be any more ridiculous, bam they hit you like a freight train. Their obvious hypocrisy is second-to-none, as evidenced by Nordstrom’s latest fashion trend. It is not only insulting to the wallet but incredibly demeaning to millions of hard-working Americans, many of whom are rightfully outraged.

Nordstrom’s new hot item is a pair of designer jeans, made to appear muddy as though someone worked hard in them all day. You can snatch a pair for only $425, an amount that is more than most Americans who actually work in the mud earn in a week. That is not to say they would even buy such a ludicrous and insulting extravagance, even if they could afford it.

Chances are, people who buy these jeans have never seen mud, let alone worked in it. If they had, an item like this would never even make it onto the sales floor.  The description of the jeans on Nordstrom’s website is downright comical:

“These heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans 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.”

Conservative “blue-collar” commentator, Mike Rowe, noted that the jeans were not fashion but…

“Costumes for Wealthy People”

Although it shouldn’t be, this is a shockingly dumb move by Nordstrom. Their conservative customers have already been cutting-up their cards in response to their dropping Ivanka Trump’s fashion line earlier this year. Company reps touted the move as a “business decision”, allegedly necessary due to fledgling sales.

However, Ivanka’s supporters saw it as a political move, aimed to please leftist bullies who were threatening to boycott the business. Several other retailers, such as T.J. Maxx and Neiman Marcus, quickly followed Nordstrom’s lead. Yet, despite their efforts, Ivanka’s line is stronger than ever.

What is possibly most absurd about this story, is the fact that Nordstrom thinks that selling $425 fake mud jeans is the way to improve their failing image.  Did they miss the 2016 election where hard-working Americans finally said “enough already?” Looks like Cracker Jack started giving away marketing degrees in their candy-popcorn boxes.
