In other news, chainmail looks geeky even when it's made of gold.

Oh, he's a jeweler - first thought was "Outsourcing Magnate"

Hopefully the gentleman will avoid smelting facilities.

If he had waited until this week to buy it, it would have been much cheaper.
2013-04-16 09:49:05 AM  
If it's not machine washable I'm not interested.
2013-04-16 09:49:08 AM  
That's a fine shirt, but when is he going to upgrade to a golden moustache?
2013-04-16 09:49:38 AM  
why can't he wash it? Seems like he could just soak it in the crap my girl soaks her rings and crap in--and then rinse it off...

I was expecting a sunburnt Dutchman.

How does he go to the bathroom with all that shiat on?

BraFish: How does he go to the bathroom with all that shiat on?

He doesn't, he pays someone to go for him.

"Some people ask me why I'm wearing so much gold but it was my dream. People have different aspirations. Some elite people want to own an Audi or Mercedes, and have big cars. I chose gold," he explains.

He found out that he attracts a lot more women by not telling them that he only bought the shirt as an arthritis cure. Now he just says that he loves gold, gold! and they won't leave him alone.

Meh.  Let me know when he buys a shirt made of mithril.

This is what "new money" looks like.

going to guess his house looks something like this:

Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: Meh.  Let me know when he buys a shirt made of mithril.

Right?  That wouldn't even buy half the Shire.

The tackiness of the nouveau riche knows no borders, apparently.

/Look at me! I'm wealthy! I said look, dammit!

You'd think with all that money he could afford an orthodontist...

Junebug! nooooooo

Sure it's ostentatious, but if someone's going to buy gold, it's nice to see he's doing it because he loves the stuff and wants to plate everything he owns. I'd much rather that than some idiot who buys it and hides it under his bed because Glen Beck told him to. That's just sad. You go, crazy gold-shirt dude!
2013-04-16 11:42:43 AM  
Actually, he wasn't from a rich family

The guy in the gold shirt isn't old money? Shocking.

But Phuge is also keenly aware of gold's value as an investment.
"If the need arises, I can sell the shirt and have the money," he says.

You can have some of the money... your $250,000 shirt now has less than $150,000 worth of gold in it.
Unless there is someone willing to pay the premium to have that gold in shirt form.
Which there isn't.

Wouldn't his little chest hairs get all twisted and caught up in the gold links of his shirt?  Yowza.
2013-04-16 12:01:45 PM  
That shirt must stink to high heaven.
2013-04-16 12:03:06 PM  
How do you SUVify a smartphone? Can a smartphone be converted to be able to carry 5+ children simultaneously?
2013-04-16 12:11:50 PM  

Subdue their bellies: Came for Rollexus, leaving sad.

tell me of this rollexus.

I just came here to say "Pimpri Chinchwad".

It takes a special kind of dweeb to wear a solid gold shirt and manage to look nothing like a pimp.
2013-04-16 01:12:38 PM  
A fool and his money are soon parted.
2013-04-16 01:14:30 PM  
I know gold is kind of rare but it only takes eight gold bars to craft that. Why is it worth so much money?
2013-04-16 02:39:10 PM  
Came for the "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" references.   Left satiated.

Did you take the stairs?

He is including the eight bars he lost when he dropped the first one in a pool of lava.

Hindians are like children.

And I feel bad for being a little bit wacist.
