This is without a doubt the most extravagant men's item we've come across for fall (or any other season, for that matter): a $150,000 peacoat from Hermès
made entirely of crocodile skin. The ultra-luxe interpretation of a menswear classic
, which originated with European navies some 250 years ago, was produced by Hermès
men's designer Véronique Nichanian
for the famed fashion house's Fall / Winter 2008-09 collection
. The Hermès flagship store
on Manhattan's Upper East Side just received two of them, in navy blue; other colors may be special ordered for delivery in 3-4 months.
