All hail the solid gold shirt!

If you’re on the hunt for your significant other, stop wasting your time and money on stupid dating websites – just splash out £14,000 on a solid gold shirt instead, then sit back and wait for the queue of potential suitors to politely form.

That’s what Indian money-lender Datta Phuge from Pimpri-Chinchwad has done – or as he now wishes to be known, ‘the Gold Man of Pimpri’. Datta forked out the cash for the shirt, which took a fortnight to make, with 15 goldsmiths working 16 hours a day in order to get it finished for him.

He said: ‘I know I am not the best looking man in the world but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt? Well, ladies?

    Cost $230,000 actually. Where can you get a gold shirt for £14,000?

    Gold shirt or not; it won't stop the fucker calling me at 9 in the evening to discuss my broadbandings and ringdings on my contractings.

    15 goldsmiths working 16 hours a day for a fortnight (let's assume 10 days, but probably 14). That's 2400 hours of work. So if they gave them the gold free, they work for £5.83 an hour. Add in the cost of the gold, they probably get paid a couple of japatis a day.
