You’ll never have to worry about spilling your Yoplait on Yoself ever again.
I’m a little teapot, short and stout…in all honesty, I could see this possibly working out as a tie, but as a whole shirt? Much less a sweatshirt?? Much less over three-fitty?!?
it’s Robin Sparkles!
Looks like the wrapper for a ‘limited edition’ tampon.
Cotton blend?! Was totally ready to drop $360 on this, but for 20% polyester?
It looks like he’s being attacked by butterflies.
The 20% polyester is like the pinchline to the joke. Or like a big middle finger pointed at the consumer. It wouldn’t surprise me if it also came with used drug needles and radioactive materials sewn in the mix.
The link on the pic to the etsy sweatshirt made me chuckle.
When I opened the link to Mr Porter and saw that they are selling out of this, I got scared.
It’s cotton blended with the mane of a unicorn.
what a pretty sweater.
I can totally see me wearing this!
… if I were suddenly turned into Hyacinth Bucket.
Looks like a nice little Alfred Dunner sweatshirt than my 80 year old mother likes to wear around the house when she’s doing her dusting….
Is that what girls poop looks like?
idea for fantasy football season: last place in our league wears this sweater for a week
Put a flower on it?
hahaha even the model was like ‘I refuse to show my face!’
Oh, hell no.
It looks like the bi-product of a blueberry and Tum’s fueled binge.
Oh wow. Would go great with my neon paint-splashed 80s sunglasses. Of course, I left those back in the 80s.
Let us hope they only made one in each size.
For the man who always felt the need to wear his grandmother’s curtains.
$360? Wow, I had no idea that’s what old ladies paid for their pink flowery sweatshirts.
Sold out in XS. Too bad.
Wait. People buy this?
“With our new line Mr Porter is proud to be a leader in the field of men’s birth control. By combining the sweatshirt and the high tops the protection level exceeds 100%!”
from the limited edition NBA playoffs collection
Sooooo close. But not into crew necks.
I like it, but not for 360, not for being a blend. They cant even tell me some awesome story about how it is organic cotton grown sustainably in Peru or something? Looks like something I could get on jackthreads for 15 bucks. Just plain cheap cotton and poly mix.
Don’t be ridiculous, girls don’t poop.
Suddenly D-Wade’s flower prints look awesome.
those hightops…. and I thought the sweatshirt was bad.
while items like this aren’t for everyone, i’m a bit surprised that the majority of comments look down on it so much.
style can be a lot of different things, some more fashion forward than others. it’s not always about this sale or that; some people view fashion decisions as more art than utility. it might not “make sense” for someone to spend a bunch of cash on an original piece of artwork to hang on their wall, but if it’s their hobby and they have an appreciation for it i have to respect that.
“Fashion is temporary and expensive. Style is timeless and affordable.”
In one word: Unacceptable
In a few more words: The horrid color and drapery aesthetic aside, the whole “luxury sweatshirt” is an idea I can’t connect with. If you’re wearing a shirt that is cut to look like a $3 Hanes sweatshirt, just because it cost you $150 (or $360!), it still looks like a $3 sweatshirt. The whole Steve McQueen “I don’t give a shit” gray sweatshirt works a lot better if you’re Steve McQueen stepping out of a 250 GT Lusso. For the rest of us, we just look like we don’t give a shit.
Which is okay when we’re hanging out in our American Giant hoodie, just be realistic about what it presents.
I think the negativity has a lot to do with the fact that it looks like something made from grandmas curtains. Same cheap material too. All at a ridiculous price point.
Ali wins my vote for best comment. Pure comedy gold!
understandable; again, i think it the material issue plays into the utility vs. art factor. this isn’t a “look how much abuse this thing can take” like a pair of AEs; rather fans of this would view it as an artistic statement and not something you would wear everyday.
you also have to remember that Raf Simons has been in the fashion industry for 30+ years. as much as you don’t like a particular piece, it is good to keep in mind that designers like this decide what will inspire mainstream labels a few years from now.
Perhaps I am mistaken, but the type of people who wear sweatshirts, aren’t spending over $60 on them. And that’s only because of collegiate licensing.
Would you hang an original Picasso on a frame from Hobby Lobby?
no, but i would cherish an original painted on a napkin
I do believe they mixed up their lineup and mark “Men” on the 70 year old Midwestern Grandma’s line.
If I saw myself wearing that, I’d have to kick my own ass.
It looks remarkably similar to my Russell Athletic winter time Jr High School PE School Uniform. (only not in fashionable plain gray) I hated wearing it to sweat in and sure didn’t want to wear it in public. The only reason I would wear pink with flowers would be for some weird sex thing, and even then, I’d need some serious quid pro quo. As for the price… spot silver is $22.4ish an ounce or $358 a lb. Looks like shipping weight on a sweatshirt is just over a pound, making the shirt roughly the equivalent price of pure silver.
All the clothes on the rack and that’s what you went with, huh? Okay.
