For $91,500 you could buy some super car or just one T-shirt. Yes, you read it, Hermes is selling 100% crocodile skin T-shirt for the price of $91,500 at the brand’s Madison Avenue flagship store. This special T-shirt was discovered by The Awl team and has been reported as the ‘most expensive T-shirt in New York City.’
The Awl snapped a picture of its price tag since a store policy forbids taking photos of the clothes themselves, and wisely pointed out that the taxes on the sale of the shirt alone could amount to $8,000, bringing the grand total dangerously close to six figures.
The entire shirt is just luxurious, beautifully sewn swaths of crocodile. I wonder if it’s comfortable considering its weight – a little heavy for a T-shirt?
New York’s most expensive T-shirt made its debut last fall on the Spring 2013 runway as part of the label’s chiffon crocodile shirt line. All of the tops from the collection cost between $60,000 and $100,000.
