WTF ?! The huge popularity of video games today means that there are a multitude of related products. They can get quite expensive, as a few new items illustrate: a solid white Fortnite shirt for $ 1,000; and a Far Cry 6 watch for $ 1,200.
In the case of the Fortnite shirt, it comes from the Spanish luxury fashion house Balenciaga, headquartered in Paris. He’s partnered with Fortnite to create a line of shirts, jackets and hats, all of which are extremely expensive.
Balenciaga’s Fortnite caps, featuring the in-game logo, maker’s mark and writing on the brim, cost $ 395. It’s four dollars less than the entry-level Steam Deck. Maybe you’d like a similarly styled t-shirt for a bargain of $ 495, which falls into the Xbox Series X / PS5 price range. A hoodie, meanwhile, costs $ 725, roughly the same as the curved 32-inch Samsung Odyssey G7, our best 1440p 240Hz gaming monitor.
Balenciaga’s mainstay is surely the Fortnite Shirt Large Fit. This unassuming plain white top has a small Fortnite logo on the left chest and like the other items has the words “Retail Row” in different languages on the back. It costs $ 995, which is about the same price as an RTX 3070 on eBay, unfortunately.
If you’ve got the cash, there’s also a $ 1,290 denim jacket or, if you really want to show off, a $ 2,550 Gamer Denim Jacket. It’s unrelated to Fortnite, but there is “extr3me” written on the back, which is well worth it.
Prefer Far Cry to Fortnite? Check out the Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium Far Cry 6 Limited Edition which is “identical in design to the in-game watch gear that players may wear in Far Cry 6”. The website says it can “dramatically improve your defense while sprinting,” presumably referring to the game version. The actual incarnation features a 42mm titanium case, Hamilton’s H-130 three-hand movement. , an 80-hour power reserve and is water resistant to 328 feet.
Only 1,983 of these watches are made and come with a replacement leather strap, strap change tool, and leather carrying case. Some may hesitate at the price of $ 1,200, but these types of watches don’t come cheap, and it’s always less than the $ 2,150 Super-Mario-themed Tag Heuer smartwatch that sold in Canada. ten minutes.
Clothes and watches not your thing?
