Obviously the Hermès customer is quite different from that of any other retail brand – anyone who is willing to wait years on a waiting list for an exorbitantly priced bag clearly does not have financial woes. But a high-end leather, handcrafted Birkin bag is one thing; a plain cotton T-shirt another. Hermès’ customers have disposable income, but does that mean they should dispose of it on a $345 T-shirt? The Hermès T-Shirt is a one pocket variety that comes in 8 colors, including the signature Hermès orange, and has an embroidered H logo on the pocket. That is all. No other fancy bells and whistles which you might expect for the price. Hanes also sells a 100% cotton, Short Sleeve Tee with pocket, also in a wide variety of colors (orange included), for the non-exorbitant price of $13. Guess you’re paying a lot extra for that embroidered ‘H’, huh?
