Marc Jacobs Is Knocking Off The Ray-Ban Knockoffs (For $110 A Pop)

Marc by Marc Jacobs’ $110 version is on the right. The 80 cent bulk version is on the left. But we hardly see a difference.

It used to be that American Apparel was the patron saint of sorority-themed clothing, but now, it looks like Marc Jacobs is trying to win over the Kappa crowd.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs Flat Top Sunglasses ($110) are essentially glorified 80’s neon-arm wayfarers that have since become staples at college homecoming games, sorority bid days, and even hipster weddings. But apparently MJ decided they also have a place on Shopbop. For a roughly 1,000% markup. I can’t decide if this is mildly funny or just plain abysmal.
