The Modern History of the T-Shirt
T-shirts are the perfect blank canvas. They allow for self-expression through a simple, basic garment. You can pair them with anything—dress them up or down. Their versatility has become an expectation to the everyday wearer. Here’s a look at how they rose to fame as a fashion staple and made their way into the modern American lifestyle through pop culture and rebellion:
T-SHIRTS IN POP CULTURE & MODERN RESISTANCE
In the earlier half of the 20th Century, the T-shirt trends we see today first emerged in the mainstream. The Wizard of Oz was the first time we saw promotional T-shirts modeled after the emerald green Ts worn in the film by the people of Oz.
With this, T-shirts were seen as even more accessible to the masses. In the latter part of the century, T-shirts started making waves as a symbol of youth and rebellion. It was at this time that the T-shirt made its debut in film and therefore gained traction in popular culture. The rebellious image was launched in the 1951 film A Streetcar Named Desire, inspired by Tennessee Williams’ classic play. Actor and main protagonist, Marlon Brando, introduced a simple yet powerful image of danger and appeal that secured the T-shirt’s spot as a fashion necessity for everyone.

Reportedly, the first iconic concert T-shirt featured Elvis Presley in the late 1950s, sparking the band T trend that eventually led to iconic logos appearing on T-shirts from the Grateful Dead to Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.  The T-shirt also has a thread of rebellion deeply woven into its fabrics. In the 1970s, the T-shirt was a fundamental part of protesting the Vietnam War. The tie-dye trends of Woodstock also led to rock and pop culture fan Ts in the ’80s and ’90s.  It was thanks to this dramatization of the T-shirt that the garment

Promotional T-shirts have been a part of business promotion and marketing of brands for a long time. Promotional T Shirts can be given to clients, to prospective customers, and also to your employees to give them the added feeling of belonging to a brand. You do not need to be a world famous brand to benefit from promotional T-shirts. Even new businesses have used T Shirts to create awareness of their product, brand or business.
Giving Promotional T Shirts to your employees is a great way for brand endorsement. You can design T Shirts with your company brand and marketing message for your employees and if you are hosting a conference, exhibition or promotional event, make it mandatory for your employees to wear promotional T Shirts. It is a very inexpensive method to make your staff stand out from the crowd and you present an orderly unity among your employees, the same way in which a uniform serves.
Some businesses think that it is too expensive to buy a t-shirt online but they are often incorrect. Purchasing t shirts online is a fast and easy process and the choice of online shops is much better than you expect it to be with some allowing you to undertake the entire design process and payment online.
Corporate branding on T-Shirts can significantly improve the brand awareness of a business in a very short period of time and aside from the obvious marketing advantages branded T-Shirts and other clothing can enhance the perception of customers to your business. Considering the relatively low cost of purchase and printing T shirts against the length of time a good quality T Shirt can last, makes branded T shirts one of the most cost effective methods of marketing for many businesses.

T-shirts , a necessary garment

Who doesn’t have at least 1 T-shirt in their wardrobe? T-Shirts are necessary garments and also make colorful statements regarding your personality, and to wear a t-shirt is plain comfortable. T-Shirts are not just fashionable but are comfortable clothes we enjoy to wear. They feel a lot better than formal wear due to their flexibility and light materials. I’d personally go as far to say that T-Shirts are wonderful apparel.
How do we know a T-shirt is of good quality? How will it wear after some time? What are some of the brands? What brands are the most trendy? What is trendy? Everyone has these questions when contemplating buying t-shirts and shopping.
A high quality t-shirt doesn’t need to be pricey, merely well-made and produced with all the appropriate cloth and high quality stitching. Just what exactly does well-made mean? For the majority of fashion designers and experts it ensures that it has a seamless collar, taped neck & shoulders, plus double needle stitching along the entire garment. The cloth is important, you need to find pre-shrunk 100% cotton jersey cloth, ideally, ring spun or combed cotton. Ring spinning and combing are processes which add softness to the cotton and they are noticeably softer than standard cotton. Everyone loves a great soft feeling on their skin. Many producers create t-shirts with ring spun or combed cotton. Brands such as Axtacy Apparel, Devon & Jones Vintage Tee as well as Good English Clothing Co really stick out as top choices, especially when considering style and fashion. Good English Clothing Co is a new t-shirt brand which includes many personable designs and patterns. Most of these are choices which are surprisingly soft, and only get better following repeated washing.
Finding t-shirts that last and then look fantastic despite multiple washing’s is essential. As
