Fashion can be confusing. Take Crocs, for instance. Who approved the existence and popularity of those? Well, the unfashionable footwear can take a day off from criticism, because there’s a new high-fashion item that has people perplexed. French luxury fashion house Balenciaga has recently listed a new shirt that even the website’s model isn’t too sure about.
It’s a regular t-shirt with a plaid button down shirt sewn into its front. You’re probably not picturing how ridiculous that looks, so here. Here’s how ridiculous it looks.

Described as a “Striped short sleeves and long sleeves shirts with two wearing options,” the “T-Shirt Shirt” is a versatile article of clothing if you don’t mind having one full article of clothing just dangling off your body. Also, if you don’t mind spending a lot. Because it retails for $1,290.

Luckily, there are two different styles, with one looking like it’s just a the breasts and sleeves of a button down sewn into a collared shirt. I guess it works for the man that can’t decide what he wants to wear? Or just doesn’t want people talking to him all day?

Balenciaga confused everybody with the reveal of its attempt at starting a new trend, with the amazement torn between the “Double Shirt’s” extraordinary pricing and the fact that it’s a double shirt.
Even Michael Rapaport took to Twitter to share his hilarious outrage, exclaiming in a video, “You will never catch me walking around looking like a fucking dickhead.”

Spotify’s senior editor Austin Darbo took a moment to point out the sheer ridiculousness of Balenciaga’s style with a suggestion for footwear that we absolutely expect some high-end designer to pick up on.
You could hollow out a PS4 controller, attach a sole and write ‘Balenciaga’ on the side. You’ll see people rush to buy them
