"Size matters!" exclaims ROUND HOUSE® owner and president JIM ANTOSH. At17' 4" long and an inseam of 8' 6", rounding out at 174 inches in the waist, these contenders for the GUINNESS BOOK needed a TRUCK and THREE PEOPLE tolift them high enough to take official measurements! Specially made for the overalls were buttons that measure 8 INCHES IN DIAMETER + SUSPENDER LOOPSOVER 16 INCHES WIDE! "We decided to make the big overalls to celebrate 100years of ROUND HOUSE®, and we wanted these overalls to be the BIGGEST IN THEWORLD."
