The World's Most Expensive T-Shirt

Would you buy a $400,000 t-shirt if you could afford it?

By Kim Anne Jan 20, 2012 4:35PM

 

Sure, we’ve heard of spending a ridiculous amount of money on outlandish vacations, dazzling jewels and pimped out cars, but you know you have way too much money when you are contemplating spending hundreds of thousands of dollars ($400,000 to be exact) on---drum roll, please—a T-shirt.

 

Yes, a T-shirt. You heard correctly. But not just any tee—this one is extra special. Why, you ask? Well for starters, it’s a “one of a kind luxury product” that has been made using only renewable energy sources. Haven’t you always wanted a t-shirt made only from using wind and solar power?  In addition, the shirt is made from 100 percent organic cotton suited specially for super-sensitive skin.

 

Although we’re all about helping the planet, we're pretty sure we can get an

environmentally-friendly, organic cotton tee for around $20 instead of $400,000. But before you judge, you should also know that this tee is outfitted with some serious bling.

 

The shirt’s spherical pattern is enhanced with 16 certified hand-set, exquisitely-cut diamonds, consisting of eight white diamonds weighing in at over 1ct each and 8 black diamonds also weighing in at over 1ct each. This is a lot of bling (although still less than the total carat weight of Kim Kardashian's former engagement ring, in case you were curious).

 

But the bottom line is this: If anyone in their right mind is crazy enough to spend this kind of cash on a tee—we hope they’re smart enough to think twice before putting it in the washing machine.

You'd be just plain stupid to spent that kind of money on a shirt when there are alot of worthy causes that could use that money.

Rediculous.  Perhaps the only ones that are  extravagant and idiots enough to purchase it would be one of the Washington pair.

In what way is putting about 16 CT's of diamonds environmentally friendly?   Unless this designer made those diamonds in a lab then it is E. F. But if the diamonds came from a mine then no way in hell is this a organic shirt as tons of rocks/dirt where moved to find them rocks.  Sucker is the one who buys it and braggs about it!   It would not surprise me to hear JZ coming out with his own knock of, just to make his own millions....  Or he may but this one for Blue Ivy....

    8 wardrobe staples to buy now that will only get better with age

    Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
