What is wrong with people in fashion? Last month we had Gucci getting mocked for selling fake grass-stained jeans for $1,200, and now we’ve got Ralph Lauren selling paint-splattered coveralls for $808.
Seriously. Look at this.

Who is buying this? Better yet, who is buying these pre-paint splattered coveralls then actually going out in public wearing them?!
They are literally called “Paint-Splatter Coveralls” on Ralph Lauren’s website.

It really takes a lot to get under my skin but "work as fashion" gets really, REALLY, close, 60 dollar coveralls with what looks like a few weeks worth of work dirt, just get a job if these look appealing.https://t.co/QeHvHpThIL— Yuri (@Yuri69344612) October 8, 2020
Seeing that Ralph Lauren are selling a boiler suit splatted in paint for £620 , might start selling my work trousers , anyone interested pm me— BIGmac 🍔 (@macaulayhill21) October 8, 2020
Maybe these coveralls are meant to be worn as a Halloween costume -a very, very expensive Halloween costume.
Just to drive me and others even more crazy, Ralph Lauren’s Twitter account actually has the nerve to state, “Defining timeless style since 1967.”
