1. Meet the Indian Business Man with the 7-Pound Shirt Made of Gold (VIDEO).

    Datta-Phuge-gold-shirt

    Indian business man Datta Phuge is livin’ large (and dangerously, if you ask us). His fetish for gold has lead him to acquire an eye-poppin’ 22-karat, 3.25 gram shirt woven from the shiny metal, which he of course spruces up with an additional 5 kilos of golden necklaces, bracelets, rings that would leave Mr. T green with envy.

    As Mass Appeal reports: The shirt itself is an ornate and complex piece that took 15 goldsmiths working 18-hour days to assemble. According to Indian publication Pune Mirror it features “14,000 gold flowerings, interwoven with one lakh spangles, which was assembled on a fabric base of imported white velvet. The shirt has six Swarovski buttons and a gold belt to complete the look.”

    Take a closer look at the golden duds.
