[NEWS] $1,625 for a T-Shirt???

30/03/2010

 In the USA, it’s being sold for $1,625 while in the UK, it’s being sold for £855!!!

I saw this on my xanga subscriptions and read this. My first thought was like WTF! Then, my second thought was it has a face! Lol. So I did some research on this t-shirt:

French designer Christophe Decarnin is the mastermind behind the expensive olive-green number from haute couture brand Balmain.

It has been described as “stylishly disheveled cool” by luxury fashion retailer net-a-porter.com, but has economy-conscious New Yorkers thinking otherwise.

net-a-porter.com’s description of the product:
Go for stylishly dishevelled cool in Balmain’s olive green distressed detail cotton t-shirt. Work the runway look by teaming this statement staple with cargo pants and ankle boots for a luxe spin on utility chic. Shown here with Balmain shoes, jacket, pants and clutch.

You can blantly make this yourself!

Who would pay for this t-shirt?

    Yea, thats quite ugly and is not worth $1625. I mean I can buy a green top and make holes on it myself… Crazy!

    This t-shirt can only be worth that much if someone actually let them self be attacked by a bear to achieve this result.
