“Finally—a pair of jeans that look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job…made for people who don't.”
The distressed blues jeans from PRPS embody Americana workwear with a “muddy coating that shows you're not afraid to get down and dirty.” No assembly and actual getting down and dirty required.
Mike Rowe, who hosts the show “Dirty Jobs” and is therefore an expert in real mud, helped gather the Internet horde when he called out the jeans in a Facebook post yesterday. He offered them up as “further proof that our country’s war on work continues to rage.”
Some could-be entrepreneurs, however, saw an opportunity.
Everyone wholeheartedly agreed.
One user commented on Nordstrom that the jeans are the perfect way to trick their parole officer into thinking they’re actually working all day. The jeans also go great with “stick-on calluses,” earning them a five-star rating in another review.

There must be something in the dye, as weird jeans are taking over the internet this season. If you still want distressed jeans (and don't work outside), save your money and follow these three steps. Just leave the dirt outside.
