Okay, admittedly I could write all day long about Balmain's outrageous price tags but this one takes the cake. When you read a price tag and have to double-check the zeroes four times, you know it's serious.

Just how serious is it? $50,085 for a Balmain leather jacket made of crocodile skin. It has frayed unfinished cuffs, ripped holes and a plain cotton lining. Why so expensive? My guess is that the jacket must come with the man the crocodile swallowed. But hey, at least there's free shipping.
