J.Crew sells $1,000 shirt
Top comes with embellishments, crystals and a hefty price tag
We’re always obsessed with each new collection at J.Crew, so it’s no surprise that we were pawing over the retailer's recently-launched style guide. It’s chock-full of adorable fall must-haves. But one item that will not be seen hanging in our closets this season is their Embellished Popover top, which is currently marked at $998. What! $998 for a short sleeve top seems a little excessive. Sure, it’s embellished and all, but it’s J.Crew.

Before we got our undies too much in a bundle, we investigated the company’s website, which lists all the reasons why, in fact, this top is so insanely expensive. “Our in-house beading specialist's vision for the embellishment of this design required more than 35,000 crystals, sequins, beads and paillettes,” says the site. “Each one was carefully applied by hand, a meticulous process that took more than three days to complete. Finished with hand-sewn silk embroidery, it's truly a have-forever favorite.”

IF YOU WANT ONE OF THESE SHIRTS YOU MUST PAY THE PRICE FOR WORKMANSHIP, QUALITY, UNIQUENESS, PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP, STATUS, RARITY AND MAINLY J. CREW IS THE ONLY ONE WITH IT.
REMEMBER WHAT THE BOSS SAID ON TV....I'LL NEVER FORGET IT....CONTROL THE PRODUCT / CONTROL THE PRICE. I SEE NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS SHIRT AND A ROLEX WATCH. ERGO NO FOUL. IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY AND YOU WANT IT THEY'VE GOT IT!
