The Week contest: Dirty fashion

Last week's question: The high-end retailer Nordstrom was widely ridiculed after it started selling $425 jeans that come caked with fake mud, to make it look like the wearer was prepared "to get down and dirty." If Nordstrom were to launch a new line of pre-dirtied workwear for lazy fashionistas, what name should it give the brand?
