Buying a St. Patrick's T-shirt on Zazzle

I have other online print on demand shops. The quality of their products is high just like Zazzle, but they don’t offer the type of personal customization that Zazzle does. For instance: Say you would like the “St. Patty’s Odd Couple” t-shirt that you see above, but you would like it in Men’s or for your Baby. That can easily be done buy clicking on the product. Once there click on the "Personalize it” tab, then “Choose your style and color” tab. You can even change the image and text. Or add a text to something that only has an image. Sizes vary from 6 months to Youths Large, from Women’s Adult S to Adult 2X, and Men’s Adult S to Adult 6X. Sizes do vary a bit depending on the different style that you choose. There are so many styles to choose from.

History of the T-shirt

The t-shirt had evolved from undergarments used in the 19th century. These undergarments first starting out as one piece underwear to later cutting the underwear into separate top and bottom garments. With the top part long enough to tuck into the bottoms.

European solders knew how to live comfortably back in WW1. They wore lightweight cotton undershirts during the hot summer days. The American soldiers took notice of this. At the time the Americans wore heavy wool uniforms that kept in the heat. Soon the Americans were wearing these cooler and more comfortable undershirts. Due to their simple design, these shirts became known in the USA as "T" shirts or, as we know them now, "t-shirts."

By the 1920's, the word t-shirt becomes official in the Merriam-Webster's Dictionary. By WW11, the Army and Navy wore the t-shirt as standard issue underwear.

It wasn’t until the 1950’s that t-shirts were worn as outside clothing. They had been considered under prior to that. Celebrities such as James Dean, Marlon Brando and John Wayne started the tread. In the movie “Revel Without a Cause”, James Dean helped make the T-shirt a standard item of clothing.

Today t-shirts are worn as outerwear by almost everyone. They come in all types of styles and colors. You may buy them plain or designed with phrases, images or both.
