The history of the T-shirt

The well-known T-shaped T-shirt was created as underwear back in the 19th century. During the depression of the 1930s, the T-shirt was often standard clothing for work on the farm or ranch in the United States.

After World War II, the T-shirt was worn by Navy men as underwear and it slowly became common to see veterans wearing T-shirts as casual clothing. 

After Marlon Brando wore a T-shirt in 'A Streetcar Named Desire', they became even more popular in the 1950s, and became downright fashionable. 

Printed T-shirts were first seen in use in 1942 when an Air Corps Gunnery School T-shirt appeared on the cover of Life magazine. In the 1960s, printed T-shirts gained popularity with all types of illustrations as well as for advertising, protests and souvenirs.
