The Destroyed Cotton Balmain T-Shirt

Balmain Destroyed Cotton T-Shirt, Exuberant Luxury Pricing.

Manolo says, $1624!! Ayyyyy! Who knew that Army surplus clothing could be so costly?

P.S. Many thanks to the Manolo’s internet friend Margot for alerting the Manolo to this.

    Reminds me of the $300 shearer’s singlet (http://www.nznature.co.nz/product/merino-wool-vest-shearer-s-singlet) I saw in Plume (home of Nom*D, http://www.nomd.co.nz/ ) about 20 years ago. And it wasn’t even destroyed, just repurposed as outsize avant garde women’s fashion.

    Balmain, doing the low crawl so you don’t have to.

    $1600 for a ripped t-shirt? Really? $1600?

    What justifies this particular price point? I mean if people are willing to spend $1600, why not $2600? It’s certainly no less ridiculous a price. Why not $3600?

    One must remember th effort that goes into tearing a t-shirt “just so”.

    $1,624 for a ratty old tshirt!?
    I could get a tshirt like that in my size from any short (for a guy), skinny mechanic on the East Coast–and I’m pretty sure he’d give the shirt to me for a cup of coffee and a smile.
    Not that I’d actually wear something that made me look like I was a total slob.

    In my neck of the woods, we have a word for that shirt:

    Rag.

    It looks like she needs to re-set her welding machine.

    Maybe if the $1624 included the trip to a tropical island to have my picture taken while wearing it….

    What! That is crazy. That shirt should be $5 if not free. But I never did get into the pre-damaged clothing.
