Phuge’s nickname in his hometown is “Gold Man of Pimpri,” a nickname he solidified in style when he paid a whopping $235,000 for the shirt pictured above, which is made from 3.5kg of solid 22-carat gold. And Phuge got his money’s worth, as the shirt reportedly took 15 goldsmiths a combined 4,050 hours to complete!
But according to Phuge, this wasn’t simply an ostentatious display of wealth. He has inherited what must have been a respectable amount of gold, and he wanted to invest it in a way that would leave a sufficient amount behind for future generations. What a guy!
