    The Life Files has brought to our attention a new, fabulous fashion piece: the $345 white t-shirt.

    To which we say: huh?

    We've previously pondered the phenomenon of astronomically-priced plain white tees, wondering which ones are worth the bucks and which are not. And considering a classic Hanes tee can be yours for $10 (and that's for a three-pack!), we're guessing that it's the Hermès logo on the pocket that costs around $340.
    Yep, that sounds about right. On so many levels.

    Three-packs available for $1,000. We kid, we kid.

    it probably feels really great on the skin, and it comes with the legendary Hermes customer service

    Are these any good under shirts? They seem a bargain.

    It's got an embroidered "H" logo, which is good for $250 alone.

    So... this shirt comes in a bunch of colors, yet everyone is complaining only about the white one. That's very anti-racist.

    I have yet to find a good use for the Hermes boxer shorts except to cite it in posts here (I've actually got a bit of mileage out of that). My girl friend asks for things from victoria secret (polyester and spandex) and could care less about Hermes boxer shorts. Maybe I can rationalize the boxer shorts because it shrouds a Strativarious, but my chest is strictly Walmart class. Sometimes I pretend I forget to take off the $340 price tag and let it dangle outside my pants for others to see, but you can do that only once in any group of friends. At conferences, guys would accuse me of claiming I was better than them just because I wore $340 Hermes boxers, which I pointed out was absolutely absurd, what kind of shallow person did they think I was, there were lots of reasons I was their better and this was just one of them. I used to go to bars and mention to girls that I only wear Hermes $340 boxer shorts, thinking just for the opportunity to see them they'd come home with me (strange, in every case I'd go to take a pee and they'd be gone when I returned, guess I'm not the only one with Hermes boxers). Eventually, I plan on posting a picture claiming that I'm Spoo and ofter to sell them in well worn, soiled condition on Ebay for $1000, sort of an upscale offering for an already thriving business in worn, unlaundered garments on the site.

    Seriously, many of my Hermes items I purchased from a wealthy gentleman who just had a lot of money, and it didn''t matter at all to him how much things cost, If you buying $120K worth of pants, shorts, shirts, jackets, you might as well buy a dozen undershirts while your at it, saving a trip to a store. Hermes is smart to have such items available

    Hermes Tee at $345 is totally worth it. The only thing that Hermes is lacking are logos so I can show off to my friends and stuff [​IMG] .

    I was in a consignment store once and the guy told me most of his stuff is new with tags, the people who give it to him have more money than sense. for those kind of people there will always be Hermes.

    100% Cotton for $345. I expect gold threading or very limited fabrics from mystic lands and no less for that price! [​IMG]

    I'd buy it if it came with a hooker wearing it.

    For $345, a Hermes T-shirt better be woven with the H logo pattern like their tie.

    Okay, I have seen these in real life in an Hermes store in Vegas and they are meant for people who we really cant understand, but they exist. People who have so much money that their whole perspective is different and 345$ might as well be 3.45$. I am all for Hermes Its a cool brand, In there store they had a fricken Harley with Hermes leather seats and a mannequin next to it wearing a Hermes Leather jacket and leather tie. Im pretty sure that Harley was for sale at an ungodly amount and some baller would end up purchacing it, an what better t shirt to wear with your Hermes harley?[​IMG] It's more baller to spend 345$ on a plain tee than the same amount on anything plastered with monogram in my opinion. You gotta be shatting money at a phenomenal Rick Ro$$ rate to be wearing this shirts.
    Oh and the damn polos are like 540$ WTF Its only 1000 for a cashmere sweater isnt it? Or is that cotton?
