Paint-Splattered Jeans Fashion

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

For quite a few years there's been designer jeans with oil splashes, iodine stains, permenant glue globs, all sorts. TK Maxx gets quite a few of them in as end-of-line cheapo sales.
