Nordstrom Charging $425 For Dirty Jeans While Topshop Stirs Controversy With Clear Jeans

Just when you thought fashion couldn't get any worse, Nordstrom steps up their game.  They are now selling a pair of jeans for $425 that allegedly show that "you're not afraid to get dirty."

The "Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans," which come with a caked-on mud look have been mocked heavily on social media and Dirty Jobs star, Mike Rowe himself had to chime in saying that they are intended to make someone appear as though they have a dirty job, when in fact they don't.

"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," Rowe wrote on Facebook.

As if that isn't bad enough...

Maybe you remember the mom jean catastrophe earlier this year where the knees were made of clear plastic. Fashion brand Topshop is still recovering from the backlash on those jeans by stirring the controversy once again with its latest creation.

On Monday Topshop debuted the MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans.  

The product is described as completely translucent jeans and reads "Think outside the box with these out-of-the-ordinary clear plastic jeans - guaranteed to get people talking"

Naturally, Twitter wanted answers.
