Frugal Fail: Designer Sweater

This item is all the rage over at Reddit and while this is obviously a frugal fail, we wanted to call out a few fun facts:

  • This is a short sleeve sweater and is certainly not designed to keep you warm
  • The median US household income for 2009 was $49,777 and the average functional sweater costs about $60.  This means that a family will spend approximately 0.0012% of their annual income on a sweater.  Using this math, this sweater is very reasonably priced if your family earns approximately $575,000 a year!

If you are interested, you can buy this item at Zappos and it does come with free shipping!
