The screenshot that shows the overpriced outfits was shared by Twitter user Arshad Wahid. It shows regular grandpa shorts sold for ₹15,000 and left netizens in disbelief.
Do you remember the Sabyasachi and H&M collaboration where a normal saree was priced at a huge ₹9,999? Internet users were furious – and rightly so. Turns out, it’s not the only ordinary piece of clothing that’s overpriced. A pair of shorts that you’ve probably seen your dad or grandfather casually wear at home are being sold for a whopping ₹15,450 by a fashion brand. Not only that, but there is another outfit at the cost of ₹11,450.
The image that shows the overpriced outfits comes with a caption, “Why are these pattapatti pants 15k?” The post featuring the average clothing price left netizens in disbelief.
Twitter user Arshad Wahid shared the screenshot. It shows clothes listed by a brand called Kobe. The image shows a plaid outfit on the left and on the right shorts with thick blue and green stripes with a red outline.
