"Luxury items" may mean bags and shoes to most shoppers, but there's been a rise lately in the trickiest expense of all: The prestige t-shirt. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen claim The Row started when they couldn't find the perfect one. Now they've designed their own, which you can buy at Barneys for about $300. James Perse has a whole boutique dedicated to expensive tees, with Ella Moss and Vince on its heels. And Burberry, Chloe, and Phillip Lim all have t-shirts in their Spring collections. Compared to some of those offerings, the latest luxury tee sounds like a bargain. Created by K Street NYC, the shirt is custom-tailored to your bust, waist, and hips. It costs about $60 per shirt, which is way less than most luxury tees, and this one is built specifically for your body. But is it still too much for a t-shirt? We get ours from the boys' department at K Mart...
