BodaBright T-Shirts

T-Shirts Are So Relevant.

Why are they called T-Shirts?

The truth is that the t-shirt has been around a long time, and no one knows its exact origins.

The following are two popular theories.

One idea is this: Men working on the docks at Annapolis, Maryland, in the late 1600s unloaded a great deal of tea.

The simple shirts they wore became known as “tea shirts,” later shorted simply to “T-shirts.”

The second theory comes from across the pond, in the Royal Navy.

Navy men wearing the equivalent of tank tops offended the British Royal Family who insisted they cover their arms enough to hide their armpits.

The shirts looked like “T’s” in comparison to the old tanks and so were dubbed “T shirts.”

Soon enough, t-shirts were gaining in popularity, and Hollywood saw potential with this emerging garment.

T-shirts became even more popular with the public when actor Marlon Brando sported the garment in the movie A Street Car Named Desire.

 

The truth is that T-Shirt are as popular now as they have ever been, and are by far the quickest and easiest way to demonstrate and show your personality, either by showcasing the band, artist or team you follow, or as a by showing humour, art or memes ot having one totally personalised.

We believe in great designs, loads of choice and the ability to put your own personality onto our shirts.
