If you live with your parents, chances are they’re always critiquing your choices in fashion. If your parents are super strict, you’re probably used to hearing stuff like, “Fajate esa camisa, pareces cholo” or “a donde vas vestida asi?” It’s hard enough to please them when you’re wearing ~regular~ clothes, so when you wear something “distressed,” you KNOW you’re not going to hear the end of it.
If you ever wear a pair ripped jeans like these…
… you’ll likely hear something like, “¿Porque gastaste dinero en eso si yo te puedo romper los pantalones?”
“Y te quedan igual.”
If you parents can’t comprehend why someone would buy a pair of ripped jeans, explain spending $65 on a shirt like this one.
You’d get this disapproving look from your parents:
Now, attempt to justify walking into your house wearing a pair of dirty-ass shoes that cost $495…
… or this Yeezy sweatshirt, which is going for more than $2,000.
This is the reaction you’d get.
So, imagine trying to explain these jeans to your parents: the “Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans” by PRPS, available for $425 from Nordstrom.
Yes, that’s fake mud.
The description reads: “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.”
They also added fake mud to the back of the jeans. You know, so you get your money’s worth…
How would mom react? Here’s a guess:
“Ayy, parece que te hiciste popo.”
Oh, and if you’re not into wearing jeans with brown stuff all over them… you can buy the jacket instead.
It’s, uh, only $425.
