A $91,500 T-Shirt & Other Outrageously Expensive Clothing

Hermes offers the crocodile and chiffon garment that costs as much as a house

Looking for a way to burn through a whole boatload of money in one fell swoop? Try the world's most expensive T-shirt on for size.

The product of luxury French design house Hermès, the men's tee is comprised of crocodile skin and chiffon. And it carries a price tag of $91,500 — or the cost of a starter home in many places around the country.

Of course, you'd need to shell out a cool $100,000 if you want to actually take it home, once you consider sales tax, notes the Awl. That would tack on another $8,000 in a place like New York City, where the item is available.

Take a minute to let that sink in.

It's hardly the first time a designer has pulled an outrageous pricing stunt — and we think it's fair to call it just that. The Olsen twins recently offered a $55,000 backpack inspired by the artist Damien Hirst, and Jil Sander actually sold out of a $290 paper bag, Business Insider reports.

If you're like us, you're sitting here imagining all the things you'd buy instead of a shirt with that much cash — your kid's entire college education, or new cars for every driver in your family, for instance.

So let's hear from you in the comments: What do you think of Hermès' $91,500 t-shirt?
