Crazy List of Guinness World Record for Most T-Shirts Worn at One Time

I don't know what you think, but this is hilarious. Think about wearing 150 or even 250 T-Shirts all at one time. I have to think this feat would be suffocating. It's definitely not for the claustrophobic. Here is a list of record holders as best we could compile at the moment. We were quite surprised at how many times this record has been broken in recent years. Note: Some of the dates don't make sense, so we listed in order of number of shirts worn.



Newest Guinness World Record Holder - December 2011 - 257 T-Shirts

The most T-shirts worn at once is 257 and was achieved by Sanath Bandara (Sri Lanka) in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on December 22nd, 2011. The record was attempted on stage in front of a crowd of people in a public park in Colombo. Sanath was victim of the 2008 Weliveriya bombing in Sri Lanka and has attempted to break Guinness World Record ever since.  It took him 1 hour, 7 minutes and 3 seconds to get to 257.

Guinness World Record Holder - November 2011 - 247 T-Shirts

On November 11, 2011, Tom Rauen of Dubuque, Iowa USA at the Diamond Jo Casino, broke the World Record by wearing 247 T-Shirts at one-time. Tom Rauen trained for months to prepare for what he expected might take 2.5 hours or more. Although time has nothing to do with this record, Rauen’s team helped him put on shirt #247 after just an hour and forty-five minutes. The last shirt was a Size 20X, and was large enough to cover a queen- sized mattress. Three past world record holders in this category have been from the USA.
