For those who wanted to get that rugged house painter kind of look but don't want to be bothered with actually painting anything, here are the perfect jeans for you: Behold the Painted Selvedge Jean by J.Crew!
Otto of Ottodestruct blog said it best:
That’s right kiddies, JCrew sells pre-paint stained jeans. For those people too lazy to paint a house, now you can look like you’ve actually been working too, but without all that pain in the ass “labor”.
I understood the patched jeans fad. The scuffed torn thing, I got. The wrong size thing was weird to me, and god help me I even understand stone-washed. But this is simply too far out there for me. Not because of the look, although they look terrible, but because of the price.
Those jeans cost $285.
That’s right. Take one $60-$80 pair of jeans, add $1 worth of white paint, and charge $285 for it.
And there was my wife, badgering me to get rid of my paint-splattered pants. Don't you see I'm hip now, honey? Link
