People will pay $68 for a White T-Shirt with combat boot printed on it?  Damn I'm in the wrong business.

Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Sixty-eight dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant biatch (shiat)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shiat)
I call that getting tricked by a business

Yeah the designer completely ripped off the Neo Nazi thing, but what people should be worried about is what will happen when a guy that will pay $68 for a tshirt featuring a design ripped off from a Neo Nazi Skin Head design runs into a Neo Nazi Skin Head that realizes this. I have a feeling that a few people are going to get stomped over this because I can see a bunch of people still buying these shirts thinking they are rebelling against political correctness and not realizing that a group of people don't want some bro running around sporting a symbol that one of them designed.

The sad part is that in a fight between someone who would pay $70 for a t-shirt and a neo Nazi, at least one of the two is going to survive.

As someone who has designed T-shirts and had them made, they cost $6 - $7 each domestically for a run of just a few hundred.  A T-shirt made for sale globally and made in Bangladesh, well you're talking about a couple of dollars a shirt, maybe.  And that shirt only has one color, on a white shirt.

People who buy ironic (or in this case very ironic) t-shirts at hugely inflated prices are suckers.    P.T. Barnum would be proud.

Taking a bit of a digression here: I'm a woman and most of my wardrobe comes from consignment stores and estate/garage sales. Great stuff for hardly much $$. Bonus: because I didn't invest much $$ when I get tired of it, I can get rid of it, easily. Not a bad way to shop, folks.

$68 for a T-shirt? Fark you.
I follow the rule of intrinsic value

For time and materials, five dollars tops
Throw in an extra buck if the design has mad props

Shipping and handling not included
So from my wallet, another dollar gets extruded

But that's it, seven dollars is all you get
So don't come to me with this $68 T-shirt bullshiat

My buddy is a DJ/record collector. He goes to neighborhoods and goes door to door asking to buy old record collections. At one house the door was answered by a young white kid in hiphop clothes. When he asked if the kid had any old records he wanted to sell he said 'no, but my dad has a box out in the garage'. The box has several first pressing Skrewdriver records, a bunch of other Oi bands and David Allen Coe's first release from Screw magazine. He got the whole box for 10 or 20 bucks! He turned around and made several hundred off the deal. The funniest part is that some old skinhead got his irreplacable record collection sold by his wigger kid. Oh the lulz!

I've tried to buy things that way. Works well for formal-wear because women can't wear the same thing twice, and sometimes you can get lucky with shoes or designer consignment (better if you're . But for everyday basics, there's usually nothing but juniors sizes and stuff that someone's grandma would wear. I mean, I guess if you're a hipster, or a size 6-8 who has four hours to spare looking for used jeans, maybe, but.... um.... I can find a pair of NEW Levi's that fit me perfectly in five minutes for about $30. Work wear? no amount of time will find me anything.

Marshalls (or TJ Maxx - same chain), on the other hand... half off the same kinda stuff that was in Macy's and Nordstrom's, like, the prior month. I've gotten some AMAZING deals on work dresses there.

As for expensive designer t-shirts, though, $68 is practically reasonable*. I've seen over $175 for a plain white or black tee shirt! (Proof: http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efol d er_id=2534374306422110&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446455959&R=829986086 545&P_name=Lafayette+148+New+York&N=306422110&bmUID=k4mefX8 ) That's one hell of an expensive label they sewed in there, eh? And that's not even a brand I've ever heard of. Rich/designer-obsessed people are crazy.

*By comparison only. I only pay $20 max for plain fitted t-shirts... $30 for printed/long-sleeve ones. If you're charging $68 for it, it better be made of silk, and I'll wait for a sale.
