The wealthy man spent about £14,000 (US $21,337) to have the shirt made. Apparently, his main purpose was to attract female attention. 15 goldsmiths spent 16 hours a day to carefully weave gold threads and put in six Swarovski crystal buttons. The shirt was completed in two weeks. Scrap gold pieces were made into cuffs, rings, and a belt to match the shiny, dazzling outfit.
