With exotic skin bags made from every animal on the ark (or, at least, crocodiles, alligators, ostriches and the like), Hermes has never been, shall we say, a friend of PETA. Apparently the brand likes the distinction, as they've just released a crocodile skin T-shirt that, at $91,500, clocks in as the world's most expensive tee, to date. [Daily Mail UK]
