That's K, as in $1,000. As in $400,000. You could buy a house with that. Or an Aston Martin V12 Vantage -- with enough leftover to buy a year's supply of regular t-shirts for you and your friends.
But J., you say, this t-shirt is made from 100% organic cotton!
Fie, I say. There are plenty of other t-shirts made from organic cotton that don't cost $400,000.
But J., you say, this t-shirt was made using only renewable energy sources (i.e., wind, solar) "and represents a C02 reduction of 90% compared to traditional t-shirt production."
That's very nice, I say, but $400,000... for a t-shirt?! Puh-lease.
But J., you say, the t-shirt has 16 diamonds, each weighing over a carat!
To which I would reply, well, that explains why it's the world's most expensive t-shirt, but WTF would anyone put 16 diamonds on a t-shirt?! Are you effing crazy? The first time you washed that sucker, at least one of those diamonds is going to come off -- and no way am I entrusting that baby to a dry cleaner. (Also, I bet it loses its shape in the wash and/or shrinks.)
But what really bugs me? For $400,000, you'd think they could have designed a more attractive, flattering t-shirt.
Btw, the t-shirt is for real -- and you can find out more about it, and order one, by clicking the link above.
On a related note, if this t-shirt had been around 26 years ago, do you think Paul Simon would have changed the name of the song to "Diamonds on the Front of her T"?
