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.
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!!!
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?
