You Can Now Get League Of Legends Apparel That Costs More Than A Gaming Computer

On Black Friday last year, I bought an Overwatch League jacket for $25. It was discounted from $100, which is a bit steep for a simple jacket, in my opinion. Or maybe I'm just cheap. (Answer: Yes, I am.)

In any case, if a $100 jacket is "a bit steep," then a $2,420 jacket is the Mount Thor of jackets. That's what a zip-up hoodie will set you back if you want some high fashion to go with your high KDA -- and high credit card bill -- courtesy of the LVxLoL selection from Louis Vuitton and League of Legends.

The online catalog for LVxLoL will have you lol-ing at some of the prices for vaguely League-branded merchandise from the luxurious clothier. The $2,420 hoodie isn't even close to the most expensive item listed -- that "honor" goes to the silvery leather biker jacket, which is a mere $5,650. It appears to be designed with ladies in mind, however, so I'll have to settle for my gauche hoodie. Oh, the horror.

The least-expensive item is a bandeau that goes for $170. Need a belt? That'll be $575, thank you.

Even a simple T-shirt goes for $670.

My theory? Nobody, least of all Riot Games, expects anyone to actually buy these. They're just put out there to make you feel better about microtransactions. $10 for another champion skin doesn't seem so bad when compared to a $940 pair of biker shorts, does it?

The lv stands for Louis Vuitton which explains the price. Riot probably commissioned these just for being able to say there is Louis Vuitton designed league apparel. Same reason wargaming did the huge concert and festival. My favorite one will always be the Firefall bus though. I wonder what ended up happening to it.

And some imbeciles will probably buy this.
