Iowa man wears 247 t-shirts, breaks record

November 13, 2011 (DUBUQUE, Iowa)

The goal was to put on as many T-shirts as possible. It started out easy enough, one T-shirt on top of the other, on top of another. Before he know it, Tom Rauen put on 247 T-shirts. The biggest T-shirt was a size 20 extra large.

Rauen beat the old record by two T-shirts. The $5,000 that was raised at the event will be donated to charity.
