Got a spare $16K? Now you can buy gold undies

If Melania Trump is looking for a Christmas present for her husband Donald, an Australian underwear company may have the answer.

For the man who has everything - or just a fair bit - Australian underwear brand 'Aussiebum' has just released the world's first men's underwear made from threads of 24 carat gold. 

Each pair comes in at just under NZ$16,000, making them the most expensive undies in the world - but don't worry, postage is free. 

Designed by company founder Sean Ashby, the undies are made in Sydney out of gold yarn developed in Germany which is then sent to Queensland where it is knitted into the fabric. 

"Cheeky, irreverent and always sexy, Australian owned Aussiebum stands by the mantra: 'If you doubt yourself, wear something else'," he said. 

 The first pair sold went to a Saudi Arabian buyer who wants to remain anonymous - except perhaps in the changing shed.
