It might not be T-shirt weather in Los Angeles, but apparently it is in Dubuque, Iowa.

T-shirt store owner Tom Rauen put on 247 T-shirts Nov. 11 with the help of others, making him the new titleholder in the Guinness Book of World Records by two shirts.

The largest shirt he put on was a size 20-xl, which is big enough to fit a queen or king size mattress.

The event raised $5,000 for charity.
