Barneys Now Selling Black Metal Hoodies for $1,265

I guess those Marilyn Manson/Justin Bieber shirts did pretty well for Barneys, ’cause the luxury department store in staying in the metal game.

Invisible Oranges reports that the chain is now selling a black metal-themed hoodie from Vetements, which isn’t a band but, rather, a Parisian “design collective.” It looks like this:

vetements barneys black metal hoodieAnd how much would you expect to pay for this black metal hoodie that isn’t actually for a black metal band? $30? $40?

Try $1,265.

Seriously. Not pulling that figure out of my ass. This hoodie costs almost thirteen-hundred dollars.

Why is the hoodie so expensive? Does it come with a bag of cocaine and a romp in the sack with the celebrity of your choice?

Well, no, of course not.

But it is 80% cotton, 20% polyester, and machine washable — so there’s that!

You can buy one of these magical hoodies here if you have a very expensive sense of humor, or are just looking for a way to let the world know you don’t give a fuck about starving children. Yay.
