The T-shirts originate from underwear more than a hundred years ago. It got its name from the T-shape that was shaped by their box-like body and the attached sleeves. They were worn as sweaters that covered the entire body and were intended to protect outer garments from body sweat and dirt.
The idea of tees
There are two thoughts on t-shirts and style. One, who constitutes a large majority, believes that a t-shirt is an indispensable part of a man's wardrobe and may be suitable for any occasion. The other, consisting of mostly traditional ones, considers that the t-shirt is the most childish and immature attire that looks sloppy and is best suited for the beach and the gym only.
The versatile tee
T-shirts are classic and versatile and can be worn on some occasions but not all. The T-shirt was popularized by many movie stars as a stand-alone outer garment. It became synonymous with masculine cool. Today, there is no occasion for the T-shirt not to be worn except perhaps a funeral wedding. Its iconoclastic appeal, combined with the simple maintenance, comfort and practicality have made an extremely popular garment.
The t-shirt is available in different styles and a well-fitting t-shirt can add that extra appeal to a man's look. The most popular is the crew cut, which pairs perfectly with most pants and jackets. The V-neck is more suitable for shorter men because it has visually added length. The throaty "V" neck looks more appealing to women than men and should be avoided. The t-shirt should fit just right without looking too hard or too loose. They come in different colors but you can't go wrong with solid colors like white, navy and gray when paired with khakis or denims.
Attention to details such as fit, color and style can make the humble tee into versatile, classic attire.
