No wardrobe is complete without the addition of a few t-shirts. Arguably the most popular item of clothing you can’t deny there is a T-shirt out there for everyone.
With new styles, cuts, colours and trends available, the T-Shirt can be seen anywhere from the tennis courts to the pub.
So where did the T-shirt come from?
The T-shirt is a relatively new addition to our wardrobe compared with many other pieces. Originally designed to be an undergarment, this slip-on item of clothing was issued to soldiers during the Spanish-American war in the early 1900’s.
Dubbed the T-shirt due to its resemblance to the letter T, many started to see the appeal of a lighter weight fabric in hotter weather, and thus started the T-shirt trend.
People saw the benefits of the T-shirt as a lightweight, inexpensive and comfortable addition to their wardrobe, but they were to become much, much more than this.
The first printed T-shirt was featured on the cover of LIFE magazine in 1942, and the trend continues today.
In the 1960’s the modest T-shirt became a mode of self-expression, printed T-shirts gave people the chance to let others know their political beliefs, what they were protesting and anything that came to mind.
As the T-shirt evolved it came in a range of colours, cuts, styles and continued to grow in popularity.
