Have you ever wanted to look like you just got done digging a ditch but not wanted to do the actual work? Nordstrom may have just what you need.

The company has listed a pair of jeans on its website that give all the appearance of being a muddy mess through a "crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you're not afraid to get down and dirty."

The jeans, called the Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans and made by PRSP, sell for $425 on the website.

One of the biggest critics of the jeans was Mike Rowe, the former host of the TV show "Dirty Jobs" and a longtime champion of blue collar workers.

This isn't the first item on Nordstrom's website to attract criticism. The company still has a $95 pair of "clear knee mom jeans" and in the past has sold a rock in a leather pouch on its website for $85.
