This is what a £60,000 t-shirt looks like

By Gerald Lynch on August 1st, 2012

I once bought a vintage second-hand Prince Purple Rain tour t-shirt on eBay for £80. It felt like the most extravagant garment I’d ever bought at the time at a score short of £100 (and even more so when it actually arrived, stained and moth-eaten as it was).

But £60,000 for a t-shirt? That’s just madness.

But that’s almost what an incredibly limited edition t-shirt has just sold for on eBay.

The one-off all-over print Nike Air Yeezy 2 t-shirt, created by artist WilFry sold on eBay earlier this month for a staggering $90,300 (£57,789.68).

The t-shirt was part of promotional items surrounding the launch of the Nike Air Yeexy 2 trainers, a collaboration between the sneaker brand and rapper Kanye West. 3,000 pairs of the platinum/grey trainers were made, but few other than Kanye himself would have been able to afford the t-shirt.
