Back in August, Supreme announced its Fall/Winter 2016 collection, but it wasn't a piece of clothing that had the hypebeasts turnt; it was the Supreme brick. While it might sound crazy, Supreme's put its name on everything from Everlast boxing gloves to this fire buck knife. It's just what they do.
Surprisingly, it doesn't appear anyone sat down and solved one of the more intriguing questions regarding this Supreme brick: How many Supreme bricks would it take to build a house, and how much would that cost?
Thanks to Reddit, we have the answer: $4,704,000. That's around the same price as this 13,500 square foot home on Prince Edward Island that sold earlier this year.
The logic behind the Reddit user's final tally, in his words: "I calculated how many bricks it'd take to build a 2400 square foot home, which is 117600 bricks. I then just took the cost of the Supreme brick, I made it 40$ to include the shipping and such. So, 117600 x 40 = 4,704,000."
There are some holes in dude's math, though. First off, it'd be surprising if Supreme made more than 15,000 of these bricks in the first place. There's also a discussion on the price of the bricks, with some saying you wouldn't be paying shipping charges per brick, which would change the overall price.

Either way, as one commenter noted, that's just for the bare house. One cold, non-WiFi-having, non-floor having abode. They then brought up an interesting point: "I wonder if the resell price for bricks would affect the Supreme brick housing market. I mean you'd figure that a brick could very well go for like 60-70 resale if it's extremely hyped. That would make your house worth a little over $7 mil at $60 per brick. This might be a good business investment."
What rich hypebeast is ready to see if Supreme would take $4.7 Ms out of their bank account to lay the foundation on this Supreme brick house?
