Ask any modern homeowner what their dream chair is, and chances are it’s an Eames Chair by iconic, midcentury-modern designers Charles and Ray Eames. And with the most coveted pieces like the Eames Lounge and Ottoman selling at US$4,960 online at Design Within Reach, owning the chair remains a dream for most of us (though their plastic Eiffel Chair sells at a decent, low five-digit-price tag locally at CWC Interiors).

But now you can own an original Eames for only P590—because our favorite basic clothing store Uniqlo has recently launched an Eames line of Men’s T-Shirts under their SPRZ NY collection. The T-shirts are printed with graphics of iconic Eames furniture pieces, like the Eames Wire Chair:
