Jeans are a classic clothing staple in just about everyone's wardrobe, but apparently people are getting sick of your basic, blue denim. Adding to the latest list of clothing items that will confuse you, the brand PRPS is selling already muddy jeans for $425. While it might be an easy way to nail the rugged trend, buying pre-dirtied jeans for such a high price tag might not be for everyone.
Clothing designers have been going above and beyond lately to re-vamp classic denim. First came clear-knee bottoms, then came a completely see-through design, and now there are jeans that actually come dirty. The pants, designed by PRPS, are your typical denim, but with a print that looks like mud on them. No matter how much you wash them, the dirt is there to stay. Maybe I'm just not trendy enough to see the beauty in these pants.
They might look like they were left just pulled out of mud-wrestling pit, but they'll cost you a pretty penny. Like I said before, the rugged look will set you back $425. But there is currently free shipping on the PRPS Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans, so there's that. Of course, you could always get a pair from a thrift store and roll in the mud all day. Way more fun and apparently just as trendy.

I'm not the only one who thinks this trend is a little ridiculous. Twitter reactions prove that these might not be flying off the virtual shelves anytime soon.
@Phil_Lewis_ That's dumb. Get regular jeans and get them muddy through hard work. Much cheaper then.— HuffleRuff (@HuffleRuff) April 25, 2017
Turns out it's dirt cheap to get this look!
For a bargain $300, you can bring your own jeans and roll around in my muddy front yard. https://t.co/6mg844u0ov— Jacob Padgett ⭐ (@theartak) April 25, 2017
Hm, not a bad business idea.
I can get my jeans muddy with REAL mud for free https://t.co/DWi9IghiQS— glodinez (@glodinez) April 25, 2017
Is that still trendy?
@micahgoulart Maybe I'll start a business that involves me putting on other people jeans, getting them muddy, and selling them back to them for $100.— Shane Rowley (@utahshane) April 25, 2017
Welcome to the fashion business, my friends.

There's no telling what jean trends will be next.
