T-shirt art

A T-shirt (or T shirt,
tee-shirt, or tee) is a
style of shirt. A T-
shirt's defining
characteristic is the T
shape made with the
body and sleeves. It is
normally associated
with short sleeves, a
round neck line known
as a " crew neck", and
no collar.
Typically made of
cotton fibers knitted in
a jersey stitch, they
have a distinctive soft
texture compared to
woven shirts. The
majority of modern
versions have a body
made from a
continuously woven
tube, on a circular loom,
so that the torso has
no side seams. The
manufacture of T-
shirts has become
highly automated, and
may include fabric
cutting by laser or
water jet.
The T-shirt evolved
from undergarments
used in the 19th
century, through cutting
the one-piece " union
suit" underwear into
separate top and
bottom garments, with
the top long enough to
tuck under the
waistband of the
bottoms. With and
without buttons, they
were adopted by
miners and stevedores
during the late 19th
century as a convenient
covering for hot
As slip-on garments
without buttons, they
originally became
popular in the United
States when they were
issued by the U.S. Navy
during or following the
Spanish–American War
of 1898. 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",
wearing (and soiling)
only the undershirt
