$25,000 For A T-Shirt? Yes, Someone Spent That (Shocker: It's Not Kanye)

If you cringe every time you see a T-shirt with a price tag over 3 digits, you’re not going to like this story coming out of India. Millionaire Datta Phuge just out-flossed Kanye, Kim and their unborn child combined, in a $25,000 custom tee that the 32-year-old baller moneylender commissioned – presumably for attention?

It took 5 goldsmiths working 16-hour shifts to create the 22K gold shirt, which weighs in at more than 7 pounds and also features Swarovski crystal buttons and a belt, also made of gold. Phuge told an Indian newspaper:

The gold shirt has been one of my dreams. It will be an embellishment to my reputation as the ‘Gold man of Pimpri’.

Well, at least he doesn’t have buyer’s remorse!


For more gold ridiculousness, check out the 24K gold pills that do nothing, Dior’s 24K gold tattoos, and the 24K gold tanning lotion.
