Default Oh drat, now a decision. Had my eyes on this car...

It didn't sell... And now, the price has jumped to 125,000 British pounds, which is $159,095 US dollars!

Why would anyone sell a shirt for such a price?

Well, it gets attention (including some media attention). They may not sell the shirt... But people might go to their online store, and buy the other stuff!

In addition, the shirt was part of a limited edition of 200 pieces. That helps to "justify" the price...

Fascinating strategy...

Oh look, a Rapha jersey for 125,000

Maybe I get both, and drive around town in the Vette, wearing the shirt?
