important disclaimer: i happen to adore this t-shirt. i’ve been obsessed with cloud prints, patterns, paintings…anything cloud-ish for as long as i can remember, and i did a little “ooh, pretty!” gasp when i saw this.
but it’s $495.
really, stella? are we doing $500 tees now? i guess the real question is whether we were ever doing $500 tees, but especially now, when people are being even more frugal and cautious…is anyone out there buying a $500 t-shirt? i mean, i’m sure it’s a completely wonderful t-shirt. i’m sure the cut is phenomenal, the cotton is organic, and the dye is made from some sort of extremely rare vegetable that stella is personally growing in her backyard, and can only be harvested using the feathers of a dodo bird or something. so maybe, assuming that’s the case, it’s “worth” $500. but does that mean you’d buy it?
for those of us living in the real world, i did find a few alternatives. bop basics makes a really gorgeous burnout tee that looks amazing up close, and comes in a very appropriate sky blue color. for the graphic element, check out this considerably more mod cloud print tee at threads for thought. and, of course, there’s always that sweet air tee by terra which, i have to admit, i think looks more like a $500 tee than stella’s version.
my question to you is this: is there any scenario in which you’d consider buying a $500 t-shirt?
