We knew there was going to be more to this story.
It’s rare that Harry Styles can do any wrong in our books, but he did upset fans for a brief while when he kicked off his solo tour in San Francisco.
Fans of the One Direction lad headed to the opening night in America and thus, got their first glance of his fancy AF merch.
Only problem is, fans were reporting that Harry’s larger sized t-shirts were more expensive than the smaller ones.

Based on a pricing table which was uploaded to a fan account (@HSUpdating), the XS, S and M shirts were $40 whilst sizes large and up were $45.

Fans weren’t exactly happy with the price difference in sizes and quickly took to Twitter to discuss it.
Ok but why is it cheaper for skinnier people?— chickennuggetstyles (@Flogenshwarts) September 19, 2017
Makes sense..I love Harry but I just find it kinda strange cause now bigger fans are gonna feel bad about it whether or not that's the case— chickennuggetstyles (@Flogenshwarts) September 19, 2017
ummm who’s idea was it to charge an extra $5 for a bigger t-shirt bc they need to be fired and choked— b r e (@hansenfthes) September 19, 2017
i love that me being a fatass costs me an extra $5 :))))— mikayla (@likethiskay) September 20, 2017
it's less material to make the smaller sizes. the only way to even it out would be to charge everyone $42.50 or not.— deespring (@dee_springs) September 19, 2017

ok to everyone saying that the extra $5 for a bigger size is horrible, don't get mad at harry!!! definitely not his idea!! management !— liiins (@lindsfasano) September 19, 2017
However, fans can now rest easy as an official statement has been released regarding the price disparity. “There was a mistake in size pricing at last night’s show. Harry and his team were unaware and this has now been rectified”, Live Nation Merchandising revealed to Seventeen.com.
So we can all rest easy now.
Harry also recently opened up about why he's been wearing a bandage on his hand...
