Jackson Pollock once famously splattered anarchic dollops of paint across a canvas and swiftly became an icon of American art. Now, following in that famously volatile painter’s footsteps comes youthful designer Alexander Wang, who’s asking $85 for T-shirts that look as if he spilled coffee on them.

The Look - Is Starbucks' new coffee-stained T-shirt worth $85?

Default Ohhhhhhhhhhkkkkk..

Look disheveled and pay $85 for it...Let me think..NO!!!

I have a few T-shirts at the bottom of the hamper..$15 for ketchup stains, and $25 for the one with the beer stains. Buy these 2, get a 3rd shirt for $105.00!

They can keep their coffee as well...

I've never figured out the penchant for wearing (and paying big bucks for the privilege) some company's advertising. If they want me to be a billboard, let them give me the shirt.
We spend tons of money trying to get the stains out of our clothes.

It would be a good gag to play on your favorite neat freak, though - give them the shirt and ask if they can please get the stain out.

Yep, no idea why some nutcase would think people would want to pay big bucks for something that looks like it's been pulled from the rag bag.
Remember this
or further back?

how about this?

I'm with you - I will NOT buy ANY clothing piece (even if I like it) that has a prominent logo/name/etc. (unless if and when they PAY ME to advertise for them)
