    Here Is An Hermès T-Shirt That Costs $91,500

    Here is an Hermès "T-shirt" made of crocodile and chiffon. It costs $91,500, and it's for sale at the luxury brand's Madison Avenue flagship store.

    Hurry — they probably don't have very many of these to sell. If you don't move quickly, you may have to settle for one of the lesser crocodile-and-chiffon T-shirt styles which Hermès offers for as little as $60,000, according to a snooty-sounding salesperson.






    The Awl braved Hermès' no-photography policy and got a picture of the T-shirt's price tag. It notes that in New York City, sales tax on an item of that price would run around another $8,000.

    I'm not sure that the definition of "T-shirt" quite stretches to encompass chiffon-backed crocodile — if that fabric were used to make a crew-necked shirt for women we'd probably call the garment a "shell" or a "top." The humble, quotidian connotation of the word "T-shirt" must have been irresistible next to the eye-popping $91,500 price tag. And to be fair, Hermès calls the shirt a "TEE-SHIRT." Whatever; it's still a piece of clothing that costs more than my college education. Plus a car. Plus a few Birkins.

    The only kind of person I could imagine buying this is an 18-year-old middle eastern prince.

    For $91,500.. I expect the price tag to be better presented or at least glued down with Unicorn semen or something similar.

    Exactly! And the watch would probably way more than the kid wearing it would. I can just picture it, unfortunately. LOL

    Notice the model? I think you've cracked their marketing strategy.

    And we'll all have $358,500 leftover to spend! It's a good deal when you think about it that way.

    Yeah, I think they might have had this in mind. lol And it gives all the guys on Jersey Shore something to dream about, too, although I think they invented the prototype of this shirt.
