Datta Phuge Spends $25,000 On Solid Gold Shirt
Phuge, a 32-year-old moneylender, recently hired a team of 15 goldsmiths to make the shiny shirt and they needed to work two weeks worth of 16-hour day shifts to get the gold threads just right.
The end result is a 22-karat gold shirt weighing more than 7 pounds and consisting of 14,000 gold flowerings, interwoven with one-lakh spangles, Oddity Central reported. The shirt was assembled on a fabric base of imported white velvet, and comes with six Swarovski crystal buttons and a gold belt.
To make it extra fancy — as if that’s possible — the gold guys also crafted matching cuffs and a set of rings from the leftover gold
“I know I am not the best looking man in the world, but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?”
