100 Years Designing The T-shirt 

Did you know that 2013 marked the 100th Anniversary of the T-shirt? That means coolness has been around for a long time. Let's take a stroll down memory lane and see what nostalgia we can whip up from the world of the Tee. 


T-shirts In The Mainstream


T-shirt's first entered the mainstream as an official part of military uniform in the early 1900's. Since then the shirt became a highly respected and essential part of the working mans wardrobe.  Not long after women wore tees under coveralls and over jeans.

Congratulations is certainly in order considering the fact that t-shirts are an icon in and of itself. T-shirt's have not only defined the fashion of blue color working personnel but also the men and women of sports, rock and roll and and other casual affairs. 

Thanks to hundreds of online T-shirt web apps more t-shirts are being processed than ever before. And now a sentimental look back at the contributions the T-shirt has made to our lives.

T-shirts In Entertainment


As popular film stars donned the T-shirt as a symbol of youth, coolness and independence, the shirt quickly made the mark of main stream casual fashion in the 50's and sixties. 

Marlon Brando character in a popular movie of the times wore only the undershirt and casual pants. James Dean, playing the misunderstood disillusioned teen was often seen wearing white tees and jeans. 

T-shirts As Cultural Symbols


During these days the t-shirt took on many roles, promoted many messages and a voice for many varied life styles including the tie-die hippie and flower children of the 60's. The upcoming rock stars who played in their parents garages and the computer nerds of the 80's who would soon seek their fortunes during the advent of the PC.

Moving up the timeline to more cool idols take on the tee in John travoltas role as the 
Danny Zuko character in Grease of the late 1970's Travolta wears both a white and black tee adding a fashion flare and exuberance to the garb unlike any other personality has since. 

Moving  further up the timeline from 19741984 there lies the ever popular Happy Days sitcom starring Henry Winkler as The Fonz. The characters background may seem to borrow from the young t-shirt donning characters performed by Brando and Dean, but The Fonz, dress in white t-shirt, leather jacket and blue jeans was an icon all his own.  

The Fonz character became so popular and  influential  among young males that it's rumored that the writers decided to tone down his street wise, gang banger character making him less of a questionable influence and more of a last resort for much needed wisdom and compassing.


T-shirts For Causes and Movements

The birth of the t-shirt to foster unity and solidarity among it's wearers. Enter high profile movements such as the walk for cancer or the call for peace.  Union marches and other political campaigns carry the message not with picket signs but proudly on the chest of tees.

A Family History of T-shirts 

Of note are several decades of family gathering now called family reunions that promote the cause of family unity, encourage family values and provide a platform for presenting family history and genealogy as a cause for celebration. These annual family gathering are becoming havens of security, nurturing and identity. 

Use of the t-shirt over the past 100 years to celebrate family reunions, promote causes and inspire generations to raise the bar is unprecedented. That said,  spread the word at the office, in the neighbor across the national social net.  Post, Pin and Print  the adoring fact that the t-shirt is now 100 years old and still going strong. 

Celebrating A World of Tees

So how is the world celebrating 100 years of tees? You'll find hundreds of colorful designs on equally colorful shirts memorializing this year as the year of T-shirts. the Internet is teaming with stories and history about the t-shirt movement. 

You'll also find a boost in DIY t-shirt design ideas using homemade craft materials such as tie-die, iron ons and hand drawn letters and shapes accented with glitter. stickers and hand sewn patterns.
