The Largest Pair of Jeans Ever


 Guinness World Record for sewing the largest pair of blue jeans celebrated on Friday, one day after cranes buckled while trying to lift the giant 7.5-tonne pants.

Workers laid the pair on the ground and put big balloons inside the legs to show off the size of the jeans, which are 141 feet (43 m) tall and 98 feet (30 m) wide.
They have pockets, red buttons and a brown belt.
On Thursday, disillusioned crane operators gave up trying to lift the pants with three machines and went looking for a fourth. They wanted to lift the pants to display them. On Friday, workers had to scrap the idea of hoisting the jeans altogether.
The Colombian city of Medellin currently holds the record for the world’s largest pair of jeans, which is measured by size, according to the clothing company that organized the event in San Juan de Lurigancho, a district full of textile plants east of the Peru’s capital, Lima.
The previous Guinness record hold is Colombian pair and it were 114 feet (35 m) tall by 82 feet (25 m) wide.
The company’s chief executive said material from the pants will be cut to make backpacks for area school children.
