Creative Packaging

So, see what appears to be a plastic-wrap cocoon? Well, that would be a pair of jeans ordered from Nordstrom. It's the most surreal packaging I've ever come across.

First of all, the box was way too big and then, aside from the copious plastic, the jeans were strapped to cardboard, like some sort of denim backboard. What the heck? Was Nordstrom afraid it'd be sued if the jeans suffered any vertebral trauma in transit?

But — since it takes two weeks to receive anything ordered from Nordies — it does explain why the store charges $8 for shipping. Plastic wrap ain't cheap.
