History of the T Shirt
T shirts evolved from one piece under garments (union suits) that were
cut in two with the top long enough to tuck into the waistband.
During or following the Spanish-American war, t shirts without buttons
were issued by the U.S. Navy and the word t shirt was adopted into the
dictionary during the 1920s.
However, that all said after further research I've discovered the t
shirt may have originated overseas in Europe. It appears the bottom line
is: It's not quite clear where the t shirt originated.
From a T-shirt one wears, you can tell their diet preference: vegetarian
or meat eater; their political thoughts, ideals, or which way they
swing. We can voice our opinion about a specific political issue like
this one (see below) I've created regarding Senior Citizens. You can deduct who
supports the Green movement, their sexual preference, if a fella is a
leg man, boob or butt man. Baby shirts announce their fist Christmas or
while others announce they're the older sibling.
When I was a competitive sailor, we received t shirts as prizes making
it pretty darn easy to tell who placed and who didn't. T shirts are
advertising billboards, pajamas for women who pilfer their guy's t shirt
drawer and we dress our pets in apparel made specifically for the breed
of animal. T shirts - it seems - are man's preferred apparel (even worn
with slacks and jacket), and according to a couple of fashion web sites
I found, the t shirt will remain popular in 2012 among men and women
most especially as savvy artists grasp on to pattern, color and image
Below, I've posted a collection naturally based on my own taste.
