- ANYONE who can actually afford to shop at Nordstrom should probably be intelligent enough not to spend over 400 bucks on a single pair of jeans – especially when it would be infinitely more authentic to buy some cheap-ass jeans at the sort of place FREQUENTED BY THE 99%, and then actually do something to get them muddy.
- Of course, we all know that won’t happen. The sort of yuppie/hipster shit-stains who would actually go for this kind of thing have been doing this faux-“authenticity” bullshit for — how long, now?
When did “pre-ripped” jeans fad happen? When did it become too much effort to actually rip your own jeans?
Of course, the above pales in comparison to the transparent (PVC?) jeans:
The above are just two examples of why the mere idea of “fashion” makes me want to dismember somebody with an axe.
I have always had exactly one “rule” when it comes to clothing: My purpose for wearing clothing is so that I am NOT NAKED.
Beyond that, I (mostly) don’t give a shit. I detest shopping – even “window”-shopping tends to grate on me. In any case, I would never spend over four hundred dollars on a single pair of jeans.
The jeans below cost $9.96 at Wal-mart:
Just as a rough estimate, for the same price as the single pair of faux-mud jeans from Nordstrom I could get fifty pairs of the jeans pictured above, and then splatter them with a myriad of whatever the hell I wanted to use – restrained only by my “creativity” and whimsical “fashion” sense.
Here’s a great new fad for hipsters: how about they all go out and buy “vintage” straight-razors, and SLIT ONE ANOTHER’S THROATS?
Hell, we could even make that more “hipsterrrific”, by making it “go viral” — Give it a catchy name like “cut-throat competition”, or something along those lines.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’ve become a misanthrope — why do you ask? 🙂
