Harrods Is Selling A £680 Hoody Telling People To F*ck Themselves

Everyone who's ever been to London will know shopping in Harrods is all about the finer things. The department store will tug on your purse strings, but no one can say it doesn't sell a diverse range of things.

One item in particular has turned a few heads, and it's a black hoodie in the women's clothing section, which Harrods claims is "imbued with signature unapologetic attitude."

But, as the wonderful people of Twitter have pointed out, the hoodie actually says something far more explicit and rude.

Moscow journalist Max Seddon cleared it all us on Twitter, telling us: "This hoodie has 'Georgian lettering' and 'is imbued with signature unapologetic attitude,' according to Harrods, who will sell it to you for a mere £680. (It actually says 'Go f*ck yourself' in Russian)."

Wow, that's a little more than we were expecting from Harrods.

The rather rude hoodie is available in sizes extra small up to large and is available to purchase online.

Online, the product description reads: "Inspired by the desire to to face and conquer the negative memories surrounding his upbringing in war-torn Sukhumi, Georgia, while also celebrating his love for his native country, Vetements' Creative Director Demna Gvasalia has created a collection of pieces for Spring/Summer 2019 to capture the message.

"Printed with Georgian lettering translating to an expletive phrase, this bold hoodie is imbued with signature unapologetic attitude."

Meanwhile, everyone's obsessed with this affordable parker coat, from none other than online retailer Amazon.

From under-the-radar brand Orolay, the Thickened Down Jacket is listed as one of the most-wished for items on Amazon, coming in a choice of different colours with a khaki green seemingly the one most added to baskets - other colours include beige, grey, black and navy.

Prices start at $130, which works out at around £100, and the parka jacket ships to the UK with postage costing $18.60 (£14). It also gives luxe outerwear brands like Moncler or Canada Goose a run for their money, with options from the designers over five times the price tag.

It certainly beats paying £680 to tell someone to f*ck themselves in Russian.
