It’s not often that fashion and politics are uttered in the same breath. I mean, Michelle Obama is known for getting on our level with her J. Crew office ensembles and multiple wearings of certain garments (we can’t all afford J. Crew head-to-toe but at least she’s trying), but for years before that, we hardly noticed what a FLOTUS was wearing. Well, you also don’t have to be an avid newsreader to know that Governor Mitt Romney is a very rich man. And his wife Ann, who claims to be “poor in spirit” and who “doesn’t even consider herself wealthy” wore a $990 t-shirt by designer Reed Krakoff on Coffee With The Nation this week. In a word, wow.
I mean, it must be nice. I have to think hard just how rich I would need to be to not bat an eye at a $990 t-shirt purchase. Let’s see, I don’t really fret over a garment I like for $9.90. So that would mean I’d have to make about 100 times more than I do now to not feel the pinch. Well, it’s reported that Mitt Romney makes about $60,000 a day, so… there’s that. I don’t really know what else to say about this.
No further comment. I just thought I’d leave this here. [source]
What’s the most you’d pay for a tee-shirt?
