6 Ridiculously Expensive Plain White Tees And some worthy substitutes.

Plain white tees are the corner stone of any wardrobe. But while some find satisfaction in Hanes crewnecks sold at local department stores, there are those who look for quality and designer tags. Herewith some of the priciest white shirts that stars like Kanye West do actually buy.

Rag & Bone Tomboy Cotton T-shirt

Price: $116.40/Php5,386.41, available at Net-a-Porter

We’d wear this with their silk-twill pyjama set and Gucci bedroom slippers.

Worthy substitute: Frame Denim’s Le Boyfriend Supima cotton-jersey T-shirt. 

Kanye for A.P.C. Hip Hop T-Shirt

Price: $120/Php5,203.16

Want a piece of Kanye? You’ll be happy to know that it only costs Php 5,203. The sad news is that this shirt—made of 100% Egyptian cotton, mind you—is now sold out.

Worthy substitute: Catching any piece of clothing Kanye throws off the stage. (Like that’ll ever happen.)

Balmain Cotton-jersey T-shirt

Price: $348.93/Php16,146.73, available at Net-a-Porter

Look, the sleeves have already been rolled up for you! How thoughtful.

Worthy substitute: A sleeveless version with the label’s logo printed on it. This way people won’t have to ask you what you’re wearing.

Saint Laurent Cotton-jersey T-shirt

Price: $417.09,/Php19,300.84, available at Net-a-Porter

Made in Italy from a buttery soft, lightweight cotton-jersey, this loose-fit tee has that slightly sheer finish that takes your Bench Body tee 10 washes to achieve.

Worthy substitute: Your Bench Body tee, washed 10 times.

The Row Wesler cotton-jersey T-shirt

Price: $421.14/Php19,488.25, available at Net-a-Porter

Not too tight, not too loose, and not too long—that’s how the perfect tee should be.

Worthy Substitute:  A deep-V version in black? So you can wear it with nighttime looks?

Lanvin Crepe top

Price: $766/Php35,446.65, available at Net-a-Porter

First off, it’s made of off-white crepe, making it a cut above other basic tees. Second, it’s got a keyhole opening at the back making it perf for all ye titas looking for that “extra” detail.
