The T-shirt has been a popular clothing item since the early 20th century. It derives its name from the shape of the garment, which traditionally boasts a round crew neckline and short sleeves that cut off above the elbow. After the advent of the t-shirt, the Cooper Underwear company famously ran an ad promoting the product to bachelors. The simplicity and comfort of the t-shirt made the item popular among bachelors as it was easy to wash and wear.
But, the question is: how does the popularity of the t-shirt reflect our current times? The simplicity of a t-shirt has given it centuries-long staying power in men’s fashoin. Thanks to its simplicity, a t-shirt is not only eternally easy to wear, it has made it possible to produce in organic and sustainable ways. This has helped maintain the evergreen popularity of the t-shirt as environmentalism rises to the front of current interests and concerns.
