The T-shirt, now unisex and all purpose, began its life as an undergarment worn by men.
In the Middle Ages, T-shaped Shirts made of woven cotton or linen provided a layer between the body and the garments worn over top.
These Shirts were easy to wash and provided a hygienic barrier for the skin.
Wearing a clean, laundered Shirt showed off a gentleman’s wealth.
The T-Shirt underwent several significant changes in the 19th Century, new knitting technology meant that it could be mass produced in a more form-fitting shape, with added refinements and in a widder range of textiles.
Hygienists lauded knit-wool, t-shaped undershirts as protection against cold and bodily maladies and recommended that Women wear them instead of Corsets.
The practise of wearing T-Shirts as outerwear was quickly adopted by working-class Men on the weekends.
