The funny thing about records is that they tend to get broken frequently. It’s as if once an astronomic feat has been recorded, it becomes a target for others to match or beat.
As it turns out, the same can be said about t-shirts. That’s right, there have been records set and broken for the largest t-shirt in the world. How big do you think one of those would be? Well, here’s the answer.
The World Record Holder
Currently, the most recent record set in this category was on January 5, 2018. It was set by the Plastindia Foundation of Mumbai, India. Their massive creation measured 96.86 metres (317.78 feet) long and 69.77 metres (228.90 feet) wide. What makes this feat even more spectacular is that the t-shirt was made from 200,000 recycled plastic bottles. Following the setting of the record, the t-shirt was broken down into 10,000 normal sized t-shirts and given away.
Another World Record Holder
An older record for the largest t-shirt in the world was set on June 11, 2011. This one measured 262 feet long and 170 feet wide and was produced by Gildan Activewear. The three ton t-shirt, which was actually made from fabric, was unveiled at the Country Music Associations’ 40th Music Festival held in Nashville, Tennessee. There was enough fabric in this one to make 12,000 regular sized t-shirts. Organizers of this record attempt said at the time that it took over four weeks to put this huge t-shirt together. It was specifically designed with the same proportions of a regular large size t-shirt.
While it is very unlikely that you would be able to find a good fit with a t-shirt of such a size, isn’t it comforting to know that there is something other than the one-size-fits-all option available? As we’ve already stated, records are usually short-lived and we expect both of these to be beat many times over in a short period of time. However, it is interesting to note that one of these t-shirts was made from recycled plastic and the other was actually made from t-shirt fabric.
