    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....51&rd=1 Anyone see anything wrong with this? Let's start with the fact that it's a cotton hoodie with a "Dior" tag on it, and it's at $405.00 with 9 hours left on the auction.

    Dior Homme is what one would call a cult brand. There are several forums dedicated to just Dior Homme.

    Sometimes the items on ebay sell for even more than what they would cost at retail.

    Are those Versace sheets?

    Slightly deviating, I really like Dior Homme suits, with one of their skinny satin black ties, and one of their white shirts with a small collar, for a black tie setting, but some of their casual clothes are shocking, like ripped black jeans for 300 pounds.

    I have seen Dior Homme jeans for about $2,500. Limited edition in Japan.

    When the Dior Homme store opened in Tokyo people, in sub zero weather, lined up starting at 3 to be able to purchase various things.

    Do you have any pictures of those jeans?

    Bedroom looks a bit spartan for Lakshmi Mital. Bed not well made enough. [​IMG]

    I live in Central London, not some village, how big do you expect it to be.

    Believe it or not that hoodie is authentic. Last time I was in London, I saw it at Selfridges. Ideally, it would look best worn under a suit.

    I would definitely agree that it is nice looking, but the price is just hideous.

    I must be missing something. It's a 'fashion' item; I'm surprised it is only that much. Not that I would buy it for that much, but as noted it is also a cult label. If people pay upwards of $200 for a t-shirt from some fashion designer, this seems almost reasonable.

    On another note brought up by Kalra/Labelking, I have access to open the line of Versace home furnishings, or to make that happen. Is there sufficient interest to bother?

    This piece isn't one of Dior Homme's more coveted items so the price doesn't go as high. Besides it's still eBay.

    Do you mean offer the Versace Home items at a discount?
