What kind of statement is this t-shirt making?

I came across this t-shirt today.

 Balmain Slashed army t-shirt

Balmain Slashed army t-shirt

The description says: Go for stylishly dishevelled cool in Balmain’s olive green distressed detail cotton t-shirt. Work the runway look by teaming this statement staple with cargo pants and ankle boots for a luxe spin on utility chic. Shown here with Balmain shoes, jacket, pants and clutch.

Price tag? Guess. You’ll never guess…. Are you ready? Are you sitting down? You should… Sit… Brace yourself… Here it goes… Wait… Maybe you should get some water too…. I don’t want you to faint or throw up a little in your mouth… Go… I’ll wait… Yer back? Good… Ready? The t-shirt sells for one thousand six hundred and twenty five dollars. That’s $1625.

I really thought there was a typo. Is this “fashion house” for real? Has anyone purchased this t-shirt? and more importantly, why would anyone buy a t-shirt full of holes that looks like a military discard? We throw our old t-shirts full of holes out. Not buy one full of holes. It’s insulting to my intelligence.

So I ask you: What is the very maximum you would ever pay for an unbranded designer t-shirt? I’m really dying to know. Leave a comment here or fan us on Facebook and leave your answer on the the Wall.

If for whatever reason you actually like this t-shirt, here’s a tip: Wordans sells American Apparel t-shirts for $14.95 CAD and we even have ‘em in Army Green.

Save yourself the other $1610.05. At this price you can even afford to screw up your first sheering and slashing attempt ;)
