Lonely Indian Man Spends £14,000 on a Gold Shirt

Posted on February 25, 2013

“I know I am not the best-looking man in the world, but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt.”

This is a statement made by Datta Phuge, 32, as he showed the world his shirt made exclusively of gold.

The wealthy man spent about £14,000 (US$21,337) to have the shirt made. Apparently, his main purpose was to attract female attention.

15 goldsmiths spent 16 hours a day to carefully weave gold threads and put in six Swarovski crystal buttons. The shirt was completed in two weeks.

Scrap gold pieces were made into cuffs, rings, and a belt to match the shiny, dazzling outfit.

“The gold shirt has been one of my dreams,” Mr. Phuge told Indian newspaper the Pune Mirror. “It will be an embellishment to my reputation as the ‘Gold man of Pimpri,’” Mr. Phuge added.

With what he did, maybe he can disprove what has always been said by many that money can’t buy love.

I imagine all the rappers with more money than sense will jump on this and make it their own style statement.

I am from Pune city. (From where Datta Phuge is. (Pimpri is a suburb of Pune). He did not get this shirt made because he felt lonely or he wanted to grab attention of women. He said that as a sarcastic or humorous remark in an interview. he is a local politician. Lately, in recent 4 or 5 years there is a sort of competition here among aspiring politicians to wear as much gold as possible..to show off power and wealth... Some guys were as much as 10Kg Gold...So he decided to one-up everyone and got a gold shirt made..

Not the ugliest man in the world either, must be something seriously wrong with his personality that he has to resort to this to get women to want to spend time with him.
