With all the buzz about the Mega Millions jackpot, we thought it would be fun to put out a list of menswear and accessories that are so far out of reach cost-wise that it would take a multimillionaire to even consider purchasing them
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 06, 2012
Cheap-Neckties.com, a well-known American tie retailer, has published a list to coincide with the Mega Millions fever that swept the nation, entitled “5 Menswear Pieces to Spend Your Millions On.” The article highlights five of the most expensive pieces in men’s fashion, most of which were created as one-offs from some of the world’s top designers for some of the world's richest men.
“With all the buzz that has been floating around the media recently about the Mega Millions jackpot, we thought it would be fun to put out a list of menswear and accessories that are so far out of reach cost-wise that it would take a multimillionaire to even consider purchasing them,” says Cheap-Neckties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “It’s not like we necessarily expect any of the winners to read and take note, but if they’re out there, this list highlights the first five pieces we’d go after if we were them.”
Each item on the list represents the utmost in luxury, from a $2.8 million wristwatch constructed out of over 630 pieces of Baguette diamonds (and hand-crafted by 45 workers), to a $50,000 alligator skin umbrella sold under the aptly-named label Billionaire Couture. The list also highlights one of the most expensive pairs of men’s dress shoes on the market (made by A. Testoni, $38,000), as well as a $257,000 diamond belt from Gucci and a $100,000 Montecristi Panama hat constructed from a rare fabric known as Tequila straw.
“We realize that 99.99% of our readers aren’t financially able to purchase any of these luxury items, but that’s not the point,” says Pohl. “The real reason for publishing this list is to highlight just how far men’s fashion has come over the course of the past few hundred years, as well as the fact that there is really no ceiling in terms of price when shopping for menswear. It’s all in good fun, of course, but it’s actually rather educational as well."
The most recent Mega Millions drawing took place on March 30th. At a total of $656 million ($474 million in immediate payout), it stands as the largest advertised jackpot in world lottery history. Although details regarding the winners has been kept quite sparse, a number of individuals scattered throughout America have claimed to be holders of winning tickets.

Although the company focuses on value and discount prices, the company does not shy away to blog about exclusive luxury fashion, entertaining celebrity news, and million dollar fashion accessories.
