Hermès Is Selling A $91,500 Crocodile T-shirt
Hermes have designed a T-shirt made entirely of crocodile skin for $91,500.
A T-shirt is usually the most casual and cheap of garments, but the latest Hermes collection includes one that costs a cool $91,500. The item is a black crew-neck men’s shirt made out of crocodile skin.
The luxury shirt made its debut last fall on the Spring 2013 runway as part of the label’s chiffon crocodile shirt line, but only hit the company’s Madison Avenue flagship store recently.
The Awl, who managed to snap a photo of the t-shirt’s price tag (photos are not allowed inside of Hermès’ stores), noted that just the sales tax on the shirt could amount to $8,000.
“Literally, the entire shirt is just luxurious, beautifully sewn swaths of crocodile. This makes it possibly rather uncomfortable, and perhaps a little heavy, for a t-shirt,” The Awl’s Choire Sicha writes.
