Hey guys! Would you pay $1,490 for this shirt?

Balenciaga is a luxury fashion house founded in 1919 in Spain by designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, but now owned by a French multinational company, Kering.

Balenciaga was once known for its elegant women’s couture:

Today, alas, Balenciaga is better known for these ridiculous and ridiculously-priced men’s “double” shirts:

Balenciaga double-shirt shirts

This is the description of the $1,490 “double shirt” on the left:

• Lightweight breathable poplin
• Two wearing options: wear the short sleeves shirt with front drape effect or the long sleeves shirt with back drape effect
• Mix of stripes print
• Buttoned collar
• Back round pleat
• Tone-on-tone nacre buttons fastening
• Made in Italy • Handwash or dry cleaning
• Composition: 100% cotton

If you are stupid enough to want one, you’ll have to wait. Balenciaga is only taking pre-orders now and won’t start shipping until July!

  1. No I wouldn’t buy it. However, I think the company should embroider the words hi sailor on the shirt pocket.

  2. Balenciaga is laughing in anticipation of the # of morons that choose to buy these ugly rags. Looks like reject single shirts were just stitched together and price tag tripled. Lol.

    When you run out of mental juice – then you go from the sublime to the ridiculous – from the beautiful to the silly, from great to puny.

  5. For the life of me, I am missing the purpose. Pretty much the ugliest shirt out there. Like it is a joke for attention.

  7. Designer give me my tee shirt and jeans and I will be more posh than any of these styles. When will they bottle baby poo and start selling it I would think it would be about on the same level and any other stupid gag gift. Maybe Spencer’s gift shop might pick up on it.

    Uhm… so the company went from selling portable purple camping tents for women to two shirts for the price of seventy-four and a half for men?

  19. I am reminded of the whimsy of modern art, in particular, that painting of a pipe with the caption underneath that reads, “This is not a pipe!”

    Somewhere a capitalist does have a (cynical!) sense of humor!

  20. The purple Cristóbal Balenciaga tent coat from days gone by would serve a dual purpose for Hillary today. Hide her battery charger and bring a whiff of style to the fashion deprived cyborg.

  21. Pre-ordering is a smart move on their part. I hope for their sake they haven’t ordered any fabric. Anyone who would order one of these probably wears their underwear backward and has a Holder memorabilia collection.

    I can do those shirts way cheaper. It’s called static cling.
