If you thought that a $300,000 T-shirt was outrageous—even if it did help UNICEF air-freight critical lifesaving supplies—you’ll want to keep your pearls at a clutch-worthy distance for a £256,500 number ($405,000) that boasts no such benefaction. Dubbed “The Most Expensive T-Shirt in the World” by its manufacturer, Superlative Luxury—which, as far as we can tell does not have anything else on offer—the organic-cotton tee is a “one-of-a-kind luxury product” made using only renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

Shiny!

DISPOSABLE INCOME

Don’t wear this to your next drum circle at the hippie commune, though. The shirt features a spherical pattern “illustriously decorated with 16 certified-handset diamonds [of] exquisite color, clarity, cut, and luster.” To gild the lily even further, the design is encrusted with eight 1-carat white diamonds and eight “enhanced” (whatever that means) black diamonds.

Penny-pinching billionaires can rejoice: shipping is free worldwide.

We’re almost certain our leg is getting pulled, but if if isn’t, penny-pinching billionaires can rejoice: shipping is free worldwide. Allow up to 28 days for delivery so Superlative Luxury can “exceed your expectations.” Perhaps a onesie version for the Blue Ivy Carters of the world?
