Barneys Selling $200+ Black Flag, Joy Division T-Shirts

We’ve all been asking ourselves the question for years: Could Barneys be the new go-to store for everything punk? We’ve already been buying our Marilyn Manson tees there, but with the additions of Black Flag and Joy Division shirts from “urban-chic” NY brand R13, it certainly seems true. The aforementioned t-shirts are priced at $265 and $225 respectively, a large step up from their Madeworn-designed selections including Black Sabbath, Run DMC and the Cure, which have a measly price tag of only $175.

The Black Flag top is 95% cotton/5% cashmere and has decorative zippers at the sides. The Joy Division one is 93% cotton/7% polyurethane and no zippers; that is presumably why it’s cheaper.

So Barneys is making headway, but if you’re looking for the true punk experience, everyone knows your course of action is to make a pilgrimage to the site of the legendary CBGB — 315 Bowery in New York City — and stand between the walls where the Ramones played their first shows to immerse yourself in punk culture, all from the comfort of a deep leather chair in a John Varvatos store.
