Gildan Activewear To Unveil The World's Largest T-Shirt That Nobody Can Wear

At 170-feet wide and 262-feet long, Gildan Activewear is set to break the world record for the largest T-shirt next Saturday, June 11, at the Country Music Association's 40th Music Festival in Nashville, Tennessee. The three-ton top contains enough fabric to make 12,000 regular tee's, and, to answer your next question, the brand will donate this amount of shirts to the Keep the Music Playing charity, which supports music education. The piece took over four weeks to assemble and contains the same proportions of a regular large-sized T-shirt, except this one can only fit the Jolly Green Giant. We wonder what will become of this massive tee after its unveiling?
