    Wow! A new Dunhill for only $325!

    If I were to make a list of all the things I'd spend $325 on, I don't think a Dunhill t-shirt would be on there. But who knows, maybe I'll develop TSAD (t-shirt Acquisition Disorder).

    No tee shirt is worth that, and I doubt that model even uses dunhill products

    Did you forget the decimal point between the 3 & 2? ($3.25?)

    That is the Dunhill product now, a brand name. Imagine the models they could have used for EMP?

    It's the stitching! They use materials that are threaded individually by virgins in a remote mountain village in Italy. It's super rare and thus the high price for these wonderful T-shirts.

    My luck I'd forget and throw it in the dryer and then it would become my wife's t-shirt.

    I'd like to tour the factory with the virgins though.

    The hilarity and the sadness of this cancel each other out so I ended up staring blankly at that sorry picture.

    Is it just the t-shirt or do you get the hipster who's wearing it too? What's the market value of a hipster these days anyway? Is it dollar denominated, or is there a cryptocurrency that prices exchange rates between hipsters, slackers, millennials, gen-xers, and incontinent boomers? In any case what are hipsters really good for? Chores? Errands? Cannon fodder during the inevitable zombie apocalypse? How valuable anyway is attitude as a workplace skill?

    That's not a hipster, it's a Giles or an Alistair from Chelsea.

    Any other type of t-shirt gives me allergies and hives and leaves me depressed and anxious. It's just something about the cut and the material, the stitching, and the confidence it imparts even when worn under other clothes. In anything else, I just don't feel right and can't enjoy myself. If they charged me twice as much, I'd feel twice as good, too.

    Our "good friend Bradley" from the Stuff 'n' Things YouTube channel was given a Dunhill tee recently. Who knew it was nearly as expensive as the older unsmoked Dunhill Root the same viewer sent him a few weeks before? I'm sure he doesn't!

    Well as much as I like Dunhill tobaccos and admire some of the old Root Briars and such ... no, just no.

    Although, I have to admit I'd use it as a grease rag in the garage or a gun cleaning cloth if someone gave me one. Not sure how one would grow a Bonsai tree in / on a T-Shirt, but if anyone could, Duane would be the guy.

    Perfect example of the downfall of society.

    Craig, that's what made me start googling Dunhill shirts. I didn't see the one Bradley was wearing on the Dunhill website though, so I'm hoping his was more in line with what one expects a t-shirt to cost.

    I like Tom's take, cheap at twice the price given all the panache (?) such a shirt would endow the wearer.

    Just effin' unreal.

    I don't get it. If anyone would pay that there's something seriously wrong. Maybe it's some kind of money laundering.

    You can get one on ebay for $20...but why anyone would want one in the first place is baffling to me.

    I can't resist. It's not a Dunhill tee, it's a dunhill. Two entirely different marques, unrelated in any shape or form.

    The eBay one is significantly different - dare I say better?-from the original. But not $300 better. And, yes, its a dunhill!

    In the age of fake news, I didn't either believe the claims in the original post or I didn't want to believe it. I am not sure which...

    In any case, sadly, my independent research on this matter has confirmed that this is true. WTFO?????

    I would expect that T-Shirt to be made from gold fiber for that price. That or from the beard of a twohundred years old tibetian monk that grants the wearer enligthenment and immortality.

    Maybe if the Dunhill company approved the copy. But don't try it yourself. We recently concluded that copying tin label art is very bad. http://pipesmagazine.com/forums/topic/cellarlabelscom

    You guys are totally missing the point. T-shirt’s, wallets, belts, colognes ARE the Dunhill product now. They made the pipe company using their name change it to Alfred’s White Spots. That Dunhill logo now only stands for men’s fashion accesories. That’s it.

    Uh...ok...I think many of us are aware of that...but how does that explain a $325 t-shirt?

    Some people can't feel self-respect until they know they are wearing the most expensive t-shirt in the stadium. To go with their $1,500 jacket etc.

    If there is a tobacco themed shirt I am buying, it has got to be Marlboro. That price is far more than my monthly tobacco budget.

    Surely you jest! What quaint plebeian attire "T-shirts" are. The $9k cufflinks would look fetching while smoking a nice corncob pipe.
