Today, Grailed, the e-retailer that specializes in archive designer menswear, announced that it had its largest sale in the history of the website. A customer bought the Raf Simons AW 2001 Riot! Riot! Riot! Patched Bomber for a whooping $47,000. The puff jacket features camouflage print and patches of green-tinted photos and text on the front. It has orange lining, which makes it pop when laid flat (as it was on the website) and green trims. Based on the print, silhouettes and pockets, it's a classic bomber jacket that made an impact in the early 2000s.
"As if Raf Simons didn't already clearly control the hearts and minds of everyone from clothing enthusiasts everywhere to even his most vaunted industry peers, a bomber jacket selling for the price of a car really seals the deal," Lawrence Schlossman, Grailed Brand Director, told E! News. "For anyone who has been paying even remote attention to men's fashion this should come as no surprise. Not only has Simons been setting trends for 20+years, but his pieces are some of the safest investments bets in fashion. Sell all your Bitcoin and put it in Raf!"
