I had thought that I would do an entire radio show on t-shirts... and I still might. Have you ever considered how they began? Here are some details that you may be unaware of and since I am an avid trivia fan, I will be happy to share them with you.
They began as underwear issued by the Navy sometime between the Spanish-American war in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. They were to be worn under the sometimes scratchy military uniforms but in the warm climates the uniforms were often abandoned and the shirt was then their outerwear. This continued because it was an easy fit, it was easily cleaned, and it was inexpensive.
