Wealthy Man Wears Golden Shirt to Get the Ladies (6 pics)



They say money can't buy you happiness, but it did buy Datta Phuge a gold shirt that has given him lots of attention.


Datta Phuge is a 32-year-old man who became rich from his pawnbroking business in Pimpri-Chinchwad, Maharashtra, also where the shirt was made. It cost him about $ 22,500 (£ 14,000 ) to get his shirt and all the attention that has followed.

It took a team of 15 goldsmiths two weeks while working for 16 hours a day to complete the shirt and its matching cuffs. Datta Phuge the now proud owner of the shirt says it's been a dream he's had for a very long time.

He has admitted in his own words "I know I am not the best looking man in the world but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt." He also claims it will add to his reputation as the "Gold man of Pimpri" where this story originates from.

    the shirt itself actually looks pretty keen. all the gold cuffs and chains and stuff make it look totally ridiculous, unfortunately. i'd say just wear the dang shirt and let it speak for itself.

    He's not bad looking, but the shirt is silly. He would add to his looks by wearing a really good suit and tie.

    Congrats - you are now India's first official black pimp. Change your name to Tyronious, don a purple fedora with a large feather, and add a bright red duster coat and you'll complete the ensemble!

    Stand on a corner, close to Mr. Ree's mother, to make it more realistic.
