The T-shirt started as an item of underwear – in the 19th Century, the t-shirt was born when laborers in America cut their jumpsuits in half to cope with the summer heat. Although they started to be manufactured in 1898, the T-shirt was made in 1913 when it became a standard issue in the US Navy’s uniform.
Fruit of the Loom started making T-shirts in the 1910s, and this was the beginning of them being available to civilians too. But it wasn’t until slightly later that this undergarment received a name, which was first used in Scott Fitzgerald’s novel – This Side of Paradise. But at this point, it is still a piece of underwear, not to be worn alone…
It wasn’t until Marlon Brando and James Dean burst onto the Hollywood scene in the 1950s that the t-shirt became famous as a piece of clothing and a sign of rebellion and masculinity. But this was all for men; women didn’t start wearing t-shirts as something to be seen until later in the 1960s, and by the 1970s, it was a genuinely unisex item.
