Better get in line when it comes to the latest trend in men’s adornments, Straw Couture, especially if you want one inspired by the Motor City. What is Straw Couture? Glad you asked.

Sound like Shinola familiar? Well that’s because it's is inspired by the wildly popular hand-made, nature-conscious products that will cost you your paycheck yet are manufactured for like $12.

What's more rustic and refined than a piece of straw? Answer: nothing. 

New York-based comedian Sydney Hollis created the website  — which is TOTALLY FAKE — to showcase his take on accessories that are both raw and regal. 

Like we said, this is 100% satire but go ahead and share this and see how many people get excited.
