At £3.5M, Infinity Is The World’s Most Expensive Jacket

It ain’t heavy, it is just a £3.5 million denim jacket. OK. It is not ‘just’ because, £3.5 million (about US$4.6 million) is hell lot of money. It is a fortune, but you know, some folks are just freaking rich. So freaking rich that they have no qualm about dropping astronomical sum for something as mundane as a vintage denim jacket. Anywho, an unnamed musician (no doubt a rock star, judging from the design) was the person who acquired this bespoke masterpiece.

U-Boat Worx HiPer Submarine Looks Like A Supercar Submerged In Water

What you are looking at here is not front end of a supercar. It isn’t an alien spaceship with a thing for supercar either. It is a submarine. A U-Boat Worx personal sports submarine, to be precise, that will allow you to take on the water below the surface and move through it like a supercar. Obviously, in the case of the U-Boat Worx HiPer Sub, there’s no highway to stick to. The entire water below the surface IS one giant, three dimensional highway.

Hermès Takes Foosball To The Luxury Realm With A $68K Foosball Table

Yup. You heard that right. A freaking $68K foosball table only from Hermès. Never would I have imagine the Parisian fashion house to turn out “luxury” recreation equipment, let alone a foosball table. But here it is, the Hermès Foosball Table. It is real, it is outlandishly lavish, and it is probably one of the most luxurious, if not the most luxurious, foosball tablet there is today. Featuring a maple construction, wrapped in Swift calfskin, the Hermès Foosball Table is all about elegance and attention to details. Attention to details like satin metal hardware (knurled where appropriate), stitched leather handles, carefully color matched score posts, and highly detailed soccer players who are, in the spirit of the fashion label’s branding, actually jockeys.

Oh, Look. There’s A Louis Vuitton Toilet You Can Actually Buy!

Yes. What you see here is really a Louis Vuitton toilet, but sadly, it is not an officially sanctioned product. I secretly wish it was. It was born out of a collaboration between online luxury goods marketplace Tradesy and Illma Gore, the prolific artist most famously remembered for nude portraits of the current POTUS, AKA the Tweeter President, AKA Donald Trump. I am not going to lie; I am quite impressed, especially when underneath that LV skin is a gold toilet (not real gold, I believe). Then again, I don’t know is it a brutal stab at the Parisian fashion label or a compliment. Continue reading Oh, Look. There’s A Louis Vuitton Toilet You Can Actually Buy!

Shared Bikes In China Now Comes In Gold, But Do Tuhao Needs Them At All?

Shared bikes are huge in China and thanks to the booming economy, so are tuhao, AKA local tycoon. Therefore, it is about darn time that someone give shared bikes some opulent treatment worthy of tuhao who are, well, still fond of shared bikes. Ok. Maybe that does not make any sense, but hey, you never know, right? True enough, a startup called Cool Qi Bike, aided by Chinese electronics juggernaut Haier, has rolled out shared bikes coated in shiny gold paint job, aptly referred to as “tuhao gold.” These luxurious-looking shared bikes are reportedly available in five cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, and Xi’an, for obvious reasons.

Well, don’t cast them away, because Hermès now offers luxury laundromat services, called Hermès Pop-up Service, that promised to rejuvenate those ‘old’ scarves, making them look as good as new.

Is This $2,300 Dutch Burger Really The World’s Most Expensive?

I have a lot to say about “world records” today, triggered by a so-called “most expensive hamburger in the world” we came across a couple of days ago. As you know, this being the Internet, information sometime can be rather misleading and confusing, and the record purportedly awarded by Guinness World Records to South of Houston, a bar kitchen in The Hague, The Netherlands, is one such confusing case. We read that this gastronomical delight whipped by Chef Diego Buik of South of Houston has snagged the Guinness World Records for most expensive hamburger with a gold-foiled covered top bun burger that cost $2,300 (some ’sources’ even said it was $3,600 and so…), but based on Time’s “8 of the Most Expensive Burgers Ever,” the priciest burger was FleurBurger at Fleur in Las Vegas which commanded a whopping $5,000 (!).
