$91,500 Crocodile T-Shirt For Sale At NYC Retailer
A $91,500 men’s T-shirt is currently up for grabs at a New York City retailer.
The black crew-neck shirt is reportedly made out of crocodile. Those interested in purchasing the T-shirt in question can currently pick one up off the rack at Hermés.
Although the high-end retailer doesn’t allow photography inside the store, a writer at The Awl managed to sneak a shot of the price tag. The image clearly shows that the men’s crocodile T-shirt will set shoppers back a whopping $91,500.
In an effort to authenticate the price, the folks at Yahoo! Shine got in touch with a customer service representative at Hermés. While the employee wasn’t able to give out the exact price of the T-shirt in question, the individual confirmed that it cost around $100,000.
PETA has already weighed in on the crocodile T-shirt.
“One of the reasons these products are so cruel is it can take several animals to make one item; it can take three to four crocodiles to make one handbag,” the organization explained. “It’s absurd to equate this with a luxury product.”
The $91,500 T-shirt isn’t the only expensive item made out of crocodile that’s currently on the market. The “King Bey” shoes created by the folks at Perfectly Made Kicks are also made using the animal.
Beyonce recently came under fire from animal rights activists after she ordered a pair of the expensive kicks from the company. Since the shoes are made from crocodile, anaconda skins, stingray, ostrich, and calf hair, the organization lashed out against the singer for her purchase.
“These custom-made kicks come with a high price and it’s paid by the various animals who were beaten and skinned alive or cruelly farmed and killed,” PETA said in a statement.
The organization added, “She can always choose the cruelty-free and green fashion favored by compassionate, chic celebrities such as Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway and designers such as award-winning fashion queen Stella McCartney.”
