Bathing Ape, or Bape for short, is a Japanese street-wear clothing company owned by music producer Nigo that caters to young, fashion-savvy urban youth who apparently have way too much money to burn.

Bathing Ape, or Bape for short, is a Japanese street-wear clothing company owned by music producer Nigo that caters to young, fashion-savvy urban youth who apparently have way too much money to burn. A couple months ago, the company collaborated with Nintendo to create an exclusive (and subsequently, very rare) Nintendo DS($167) bedazzled with Mario and the now famous BAPE logo.

Now they're releasing a line of T-shirts and fleece sweatshirts for their fans who just can't get enough of high-priced gear. The "Mario to Milo" series will feature Nintendo's classic Italian plumber and Bape's favorite monkey, Milo. The prints will be prominently featured on crew-neck sweatshirts, hoodies, and T-shirts alike, and will be available at various online retailers starting at a surprisingly affordable $175. Wait a second, $175 for a white T-shirt? This thing better come with a bald eagle and a couple Faberge eggs.
