Indian businessman Datta Phuge is the proud owner of a shirt worth 12.7 million rupees and has now decided to get his prized possession some worldwide recognition.

The Pune-based man's shirt is made up of 14,000 pieces of 22-carat gold and was put together by 15 craftsmen over 16 days. At 3.32 kilogrammes (7.3 pounds), the end product is so heavy that Phuge has applied for a Guinness World Record.
