$55 T-Shirts Still Exist

Way back in the good times of 2005 $50, limited-edition, artist designed t-shirts were practically de rigeur. Now, in the baron economic landscape that is 2008 they seem kind of ridiculous. But ridiculous fashion is always kind of the norm on the beach, so it's no surprise really that The Standard is pimping this t-shirt for $55. It has Miami scrawled on it by local artist Jose Parla (there's also editions for the other Standards in NYC and LA), and only 1500 were made.

THE TOURIST TEE set consists of 3 different

graphics offered in 2 different color-ways. Each is packaged in its own

reusable, nylon, monogrammed travel case, making it the perfect

pre-wrapped, 2-for-1 gift.

This is good news for people who are biologically allergic to clothes that cost under $25, but don't want to look conspiculously oppulant during the Great Depression 2.0. No offense to the artist, but there is no way this shirt looks like it should cost $55.
