The rich really are different
Who else would seriously consider buying a t-shirt for $91,500? I mean, there are obviously smart rich people there, but there are enough dolts with money that Hermes thought they could actually offer a t-shirt for $91,500.
With a straight face.
The rationale is that it's made by Hermès , and it's made from crocodile. To which I say, I can buy a nice, washable cotton T-shirt for under $10. It's a T-shirt. Also, I don't care if it's made by Hermès , it's ugly. There is some dude in a muscle car who wants to know what happened to his interior upholstery.
If that is too much money for you, go the discount route and buy a cheaper version by Hermès for $60,000.
It makes paying $50 for a t-shirt seem downright frugal.
Some folks are calling the material innovative. The only innovative thing I see here is the lengths people will go to convince you that spending that much on anything that you'll deposit pit stains on is a good idea.
Don't buy this shirt. See? You've just saved $91,500. YOU'RE WELCOME.
