Vintage T-shirt and History

Vintage designs have become more popular over the last few years. Not only do they look good on cards, but they look good on clothing too.

When going trick-or-treating with your child or grandchild, it is fun to dress up as well. But if you feel too embarrassed dressed up as a bunny or devil, how about a Halloween t-shirt. Add a vintage design to it and you have one nice looking Vintage Halloween t-shirt.

Both Funnyjokes Shop Halloween T-shirts and Sandyspider Gifts T-shirts on Zazzle offer fun t-shirts to wear on this magically day or any day. Even at the office if it is allowed.

T-shirts, as a slip on garment without buttons, originally became popular in the United States when they were issued by the U.S. Navy during or following the Spanish American War. These were a crew-necked, short-sleeved, white cotton undershirt to be worn under a uniform. It became common for sailors and Marines in work parties, the early submarines, and tropical climates to remove their uniform jacket not to soil it, wearing only the undershirt.

After World War II it became common to see veterans wearing their uniform trousers with their T-shirts as casual clothing.

This became more popular after Marlon Brando wore one in "A Streetcar Named Desire". Giving the t-shirt fashionable status.

Ah the tee shirt. As much a part of American culture as perhaps apple pie...

Though, the world IS catching on. They're pretty darn popular, and certainly not underwear anymore.
