Gold Shirt

Datta Phuge of Pimpri-Chinchwad, India, spent £14,000 ($22,754) on a custom-made gold shirt to impress women. The shirt is woven through with 24-karat gold thread and comes with matching cuffs, belt, and rings made of leftover gold. The six buttons are Swarovski crystals. Phuge made his fortune as a money-lender.

'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 explained

'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 said.

That shirt is guaranteed to attract gold diggers. Link -via Breakfast Links

I apologize if any offense was taken. However, you create more open minds to learning if you don't throw words like "ignorant" into the lesson.

Not sure what the caste system has to do with this. That's like bringing up racism while talking about Hummers.

I was just pointing out that what seems tacky to you and me could actually be not so tacky to other cultures. Maybe it's the Indian version of Donald Trump's toupee - don't look at it or you'll lose your job - but I bet his gold shirt will get him exactly what he wants.

And it's not painting a billion people with a broad brush, Miss C. One can say that Canadians like hockey without meaning that every single Canadian actually likes hockey.

Yes, we realize that it's the cultural equal of driving a Hummer.. ti's still a ugly shirt made solely to say "i'm rich."

Indians also still follow a strict caste system.. does that mean it's ok?
