^ Yikes -- They look sort of edible, like they were made out of pop rocks and red vines.

nothing to do with MJ clothing but...um...$1.50 for a condom isn't overpriced, anywhere where you can buy just ONE condom (mostly vending machines?) would cost that much or more; here in paris, a pack of 10 at the supermarket comes to about $1.50 each.

condoms don't cost that much here by a long shot. and i'm sure the marc jacobs condoms would cost more in euros.

I don't think MJ condoms are even sold in EU. Maybe they don't meet some guidelines.
In any case, Durex 3 pack usually costs 4,5-5 €.

^yes, durex. i'm embarrassed that i bought the marc jacobs condoms as gifts, but they're not even durex. or trojan or anything. that's what makes them overpriced imho.

From $7000 Balenciaga Art piece shoes to $1.50 MJ condoms?
I think it makes a big difference to talk about a fashion article which is 3 times overpriced and talking about a condom which cost's $1.50 instead of $1.

Come on, let's get back to subject, EXPENSIVE FASHION!

^yes, my larger point is that marc jacobs marks up EVERYTHING....i didn't think anyone would argue the point. back to our fun game: how about a three thousand dollar brass necklace? yours by lanvin.

aaaand Proenza Schouler makes a bold entrance into this thread... with a $300 cotton striped t-shirt!


barneys


I hope this doesn't make Abercrombie or American Eagle re-consider their pricing...

^ From the above description I've realized that this shirt resembles that $7 Tee I bought the other week that stretched to oblivion after one wash

Stupid Barney's forgot the most important description about the Proenza t-shirt - it's bulletproof! That's why it costs $325. Trust me I work in the Proenza military division.

^ Maybe they're extra large with padding.
But seriously guys, let's stick to fashion please? After all there's another thread for ridiculous designer items.
