The origins of the t-shirt can be traced back as far as the late nineteenth century when a common one piece undergarment was cut in half for a more comfortable fit.
The t-shirt however became popularized shortly after the Spanish American War when the US Navy began issuing them to be worn under a uniformed jacket.
In the beginning t-shirts were worn as undershirts, but now they have become a staple piece in the wardrobes of those uninterested in fashion. Why the t-shirt?
Over the years, particularly from the nineteen sixties and onwards the t-shirt has become an important mode of self-expression and advertising. Thanks to its prominent position and convenient focus with eyelevel, it has become an extremely effective way of ensuring one’s message, joke, or belief system can be recognised easily.
Rude or offensive t-shirts represent the loosening moral attitude of society and show peoples relaxing feelings toward social ramifications. …. That’s just my opinion anyway! Love theirishretrochic
