A Golden Shirt Fit For A Lottery Winner

An Indian man from the city of Pimpri-Chinchwad has got his New Year started the right way. Let’s take a look at what this gentleman has been up to.

32 year old Datta Phuge is known as “The Gold Man of Pimpri”. The nickname originally came about due to his profession as a money lender but it now has become quite literal.

Mr. Phuge has had a gold shirt specially created for himself and he hopes that it will help him with the ladies:

'I know I am not the best looking man in the world but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?'

While the jury is out as to whether his golden shirt will make him a hit with women one cannot deny that it’s an impressive piece of work.


Golden Shirt

Whether its art, fashion, a publicity stunt or simply an attempt to garner the glances of the opposite sex Mr. Phuge has certainly got our attention.

For the princely sum of £14,000.00 Mr. Phuge had a team of goldsmith’s work around the clock for 2 weeks to create and weave gold thread onto a fabric base of white velvet. The end result, as you can see, is pretty amazing!

It’s not only the shirt that is gold, there are some added extras:

•    Matching gold cuffs
•    A set of gold rings
•    Six Swarovski crystal buttons
•    An intricate gold belt

The gold shirt certainly comes with the whole package but we wonder where such an idea came from?

According to Mr. Phuge this is the shirt of his dreams. While we don’t expect every lottery winner to create a handmade shirt of gold we do believe in everyone being entitled to follow their dreams.

Is this gold shirt too much of a lavish expense or is Mr. Phuge simply a “shining” example of how to live your dreams?

The gold shirt's cost is ₹ 12.7 million (~ $ 233000; ~ £ 144000). He is saying that he used to be very poor in his youth but later he worked very hard & became a successful businessman. And it was his childhood dream to wear a gold shirt. So, let it be. The gold's price will most probably increase with time & it might come handy if his fortunes reverses. So, it's a secure investment also.
