Datta Phuge of Pimpri Chinchwad, outside Pune, commissioned a gold shirt for himself. The end result weighs 3.3kg, comes with a velvet inner lining, and is unwashable.
Phuge says wearing it makes him feel good. For him it is the ultimate manifestation of achievement and gives him a status he has craved since he was young.
"When I was at college, people would say you were from a rich family if you had gold. So from the age of 20, I started wearing gold. Back then in smaller quantities, like 10 or 15g."
