History of the Short-Sleeve Shirt
Although the use of the shirt-sleeve shirt has been around for decades, it wasn’t until the golden era of tailoring, which occurred sometime during the 19th century, in which it was given its proper, and famously known, design and shape. Tailors of the era begun to stray away from the previous design of having this undergarment feature a fixed and fitted shirt collar, a plain and basic colour which typically was white. Instead, they opted to make the collar looser fitting, yet not too low, and begun offering the shirt in an array of colours which was popular among labourers who wanted apparel that had more personality to it.
Within the following decades of the golden era of tailoring, the short sleeve shirt has seen its fair share of modifications: some were created with a fixed collar and buttons, while other were give a lower V-neck collar. These modifications, alongside the original and basic short-sleeve shirt, became universally popular among men and women alike and were being incorporated in a multitude of ways. It was used as loungewear, pyjamas, and casual daily wear that could be worn alone or with additional layering.
