Modern day sailing t shirts originated as a men’s undergarment at the turn of the century. The style at the time was a full one-piece article of clothing that had a button up top. It was called a Union Suit and was the standard for men which saw a huge change in 1902. A newly designed two-piece undergarment was released by the P. H. Hanes Knitting Company which became very popular. It was followed in 1938 with another design alteration created by the Sears Company which they named the Gob Shirt.
Movies in the 1950s have featured leading men wearing t-shirts and by the 1960s they were mainstream. By this time the era saw them appear with various types of tie dye patterns and various slogans and statements. In the 1970s and 1980s t shirts became a common platform for every kind of political and humorous statement as well as turning into souvenir items with patterns, photos and other tourist-related printing on them. This has continued to the present day and the subject matter that has appeared on t shirts now crosses the entire spectrum.
