(RNN) - Nordstrom debuted a rather expensive pair of jeans and critics have pulled no punches.
The Nordstrom website features a pair of jeans covered in fake mud that you can buy for the low price of $425.
The "Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans" feature large patches of dirt meant to simulate a hard day's work. Nordstrom called the effect "caked-on muddy coating."
Nordstrom further described the pants in the product listing. They wrote that the jeans "embody rugged, America workwear that's seen some hard-working action" and that they show "you're not afraid to get down and dirty."
Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe discovered the product and called it an example of "our country's war on work."
"They're a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic - not iconic," Rowe wrote on Monday.
Nordstrom suffered a backlash in 2016 for selling rocks wrapped in leather for $85 apiece. The store also sells $95 "mom jeans" equipped with clear plastic panels on the legs and $1,200 sock-sandals with high heels.
