The first prototype of a T-shirt appeared in the early nineteenth century. This was the invention of miners who used them for protection from dust and sun. But in the form we are used to, T-shirts appeared in 1898, thanks to the US Army Marines. The military wore them as underwear under the uniform.
A real boom happened in 1942 when a soldier appeared on the cover of “Life” magazine wearing a T-shirt with a print.
Today men’s T-shirts are those items without which any wardrobe, even women’s, cannot do. Their rather simple form made this kind of clothes cross-functional and a basic component of any wardrobe.
