Top 5 Situations When It Might Make Sense to Spend $128 on This Ripped T-Shirt


1. You are president of your local chapter of the Moth Damage Fan Club and need to make an authoritative fashion statement.

2. You are president of your local chapter of Spendthrifts Anonymous and need to make an authoritative fashion statement.

3. You are starring in a shockingly well-funded production of Les Misérables.

4. You thought the price was $1.28, so you were like, "Haha cool! A cozy, pre-ripped t-shirt for two bucks!" and you haven't seen your bank statement yet.

5. You stumble half naked into a Nevada airport (that's what you get for wakin' up in Vegas, am I right?), realize that you are half naked, and the kiosk next to your terminal is selling ripped t-shirts for $128.

Maybe you can re-use this picture in the next installment of DSYC :-)

Seriously. I just don't get "distressed." Or "shredded."

flowermash said...

Awesome. I think my Dad has some shirts like this. He uses them when he is fixing my car to wipe up oil and break fluid.

Annie said...

Ha.
That t-shirt is absolutely ridiculous.
Love your blog!!!

Another option: You have a fashion blog in which you post endless pictures of yourself pouting while wearing fewer clothes than a $10 hooker.

#4, definitely #4. I would see the bank statement and kick myself.

I get distressed, sometimes. But not shredded.

(I wrote about your book today!)

Don't these people understand that if you are going to wear a shredded t-shirt, it's just far more fun to destroy it yourself? =P You can use scissors, garden shears, hedge clippers.

Love this list!

Why? Whyyyyyy?
Distressed jeans aren't my thing, but they require time and effort to make, and maybe you'd rather buy them pre-bleached and ripped and pay extra for it. Okay fine. But this shirt? Takes maybe 5 minutes and a box cutter. And it makes you look homeless. I. Don't. Get. It.

pretty sure i love her facial expression

Ms. Wife of the Year said...

She looks a damn fool.

Edana said...

Hmmm...I think I have a long t-shirt and a pair of scissors. I could probably make an easy hundred bucks selling the result at "discount" prices!

Jenny said...

Haha. Seriously.

Actually, my first thought was: and it's not even a cute color...

Hee hee hee, that was funny. I don't get that kind of "fashion."

When the zombie apocalypse occurs, & I am hiding out overnight in an abandoned home.. I hope this shirt is in the closet. (because the one I showed up in is probably soaked in various bodily fluids of non-survivors). It would go quite well with my distressed black denim skirt & my resilient Frye Veronica boots.

Awesome.

its as bad as this. Why would you spend £161 on a swimsuit that makes you look like a child in a dodgy beauty pagent?

Annie Spandex said...

Lol.. :)

Beth said...

Actually.... the Les Mis guess isn't too far off. I have a friend who is a swing in the touring company of 'Phantom...Opera' & they giver her her own dress which she wears for all of five minutes, that is worth about $2,000.

But of course, hers is well made & doesn't have any holes in it, so...
