Nordstrom is back at it again with another towering middle finger to everyone who’s never seen more than one comma on their bank statement. This time instead of rocks that cost as much as a bottle of single malt scotch they’re selling dirty jeans for $425.
That’s right, for less than what the average Nordstrom customer probably spends at the country club in a week, they can get dirty jeans and look just as poverty stricken as the rest of us. No longer will they have to face the world with the guilt that being exorbitantly wealthy brings. They can walk the streets and blend in among the masses of debt riddled commoners. Maybe they’ll wander into a bar and start bitching about “their boss,” with the other laborers there, all the while smiling on the inside because they secretly are the boss! Oh, what fun!
I see why people are so pissed about this, but I think this is just a classic case of jealousy. How many times do you see outlet malls packed on weekends with people trying to get designer brands for the cheapest price? Walk through New York and you’ll see every vendor selling fake products that they swear no one will be able to tell the difference between. We’re always trying to look rich, why can’t the rich try to look like us? Personally, I’m aching for the day I look at this ad and wonder what it’d be like to trade my Richard Branson brand white linens for some, “Americana workwear that’s seen some hard working action.” Maybe y’all should be too..
