Ridiculous Price Tag on a Stupid T-Shirt

Hi Pouters

Did you read about this custom t-shirt, the worlds “most expensive” t-shirt, made of crocodile skin? Take a deep breath, or many, because this is actually happening in the world.

stupid hermes t-shirt in question…

How much would you spend on a t-shirt, realistically? I am talking about a t-shirt, something you pair with your jeans, or what you work out in, wear on casual day, wear for a walk, you know, a t-shirt…. Depending on the t-shirt itself and if it would guarantee that I would look completely drop dead gorgeous in it, at a push, I would probably spend up to R500… and that is even a lot. I’d much more likely to actually spend about 20% of that above mentioned price.

Now, think of how much money any of the men in your life would realistically spend on a tshirt? R350 maximum? Well, I can only speak for the men that I know in my life and well, R350 is pushing the boundary ever so slightly, but you know, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Hermes is already known for carrying a plain white t-shirt for $345, roughly R3,277.50, but the latest item in its invetory is simply just cold blooded, according to most opinions on the social media. I tend to agree.

Hermes have designed a croc-leather look t-shirt for menswear Spring/Summer that is retailing at a staggering price of $91,500, roughly R869,20.00 and it is now considered to be the most expensive t-shirt in the world. That price is apparently also missing retail tax of approximately $8,000, so the approximate price of this garment is: R950,000!!! price tag on stupid hermes shirt

The picture of the price tag clearly shows the $91,500 number. Made of crocodile this t-shirt looks absolutely horrendous!! Who wants a leather-y like freaking t-shirt??? Imagine how a man would sweat in that. Actually, any man who wanted to and/or elected to wear this deserves to actually sweat their balls off….

It’s not the first time that Hermes has stunned the world with a whopping price tag. Last year the brand presented a $2 million, roughly R19,000,000, Kelly bag version encrusted with diamonds although too small to hold anything and even earlier there was a red croc leather Birkin bag with white gold and diamond hardware was acutioned at $203,150, roughly, R1,929,925.

Despite the fact that a living creature had to die in vain in order for this t-shirt to be made, which is a whole different debate entirely, with less money I think I could buy my own crocodile and get a high end tailor to make a shirt of a similar nature.

This “fashion” is absolutely ridiculous. I shudder to think what is going to be the next thing to “top” this…

What do you think about this shirt, and its price tag?

    I think its a joke a horrendous joke what the hell has the world come to when you work out how much food one could buy with that amount of money how many starving children could be fed or how much medicine could be provided it makes you shudder to think that humanity has become so stupid there are no values or morals take into account what movie stars earn for taking their clothes off and learning a few lines what government employees spend on homes or cars or the fact that when you look an ethiopian who is starving to death we say how horrible but the fashion world values the same look above all and that’s the message we are sending to our youth wake up world you are destroying yourself. Humans will destroy anything for their greed and now that they are getting bored because all the horror has been done then let’s rape kids maime and kill defenceless animals and wear them its all to sick to comprehend and I am ashamed to be part of this race that call themselves human

    • very profound, but very well said Tiffany, it’s sad. I couldn’t agree with you more. Surely an established fashion house, like Hermes could see these things but it appears that they are blind, and its all about the bigger price tag, the better the brand.
      Talk about backwards, fashion world….
