The Beginning Of Funny T Shirts
The humble T-Shirt, tee-shirt or tee is one of the most popular clothing items in the world. And we’ve got some nerdy insights about the history of your geek t shirts. This T shaped garment is the go-to top covering for most people in a casual environment. Its rise to popularity around the time of the Great Depression came about for times when modesty called for a torso covering but conditions called for lightweight fabrics. The Cooper Underwear Company popularised the crew neck design on a t-shirt and it was standard kit in the U.S. Navy, but the actual invention of the T-Shirt predates this. Developing from men’s long-johns it is thought that the ubiquitous tee came about somewhere between the Spanish-American War and the early 20th century.
Cool T Shirts Are More Than Comfortable To Wear
Whoever invented the t shirt, we have a lot to be thankful for, for the tee is one of the most comfortable garments in existence. They literally go with everything too. I mean you can never go past casual cool t shirts or funny t shirts to couple with a pair of jeans. T shirts really are the most versatile piece of clothing we own. Tee with shorts. Two tees at once. Short sleeve tee and long sleeve t-shirt together. Holding a teapot whilst wearing a t-shirt (weird, but whatever!). But the problem with traditional t-shirts is that they are just boring. Boring plain colours and lacking in humour and fun. Who wants a crew-necked, short-sleeved, white cotton undershirt? That’s not what funny t-shirts and cool t shirts are about these days. That’s why at Yellow Octopus our range of quality funny t-shirts and cool t shirts are colourful, hilarious and sure to raise an eyebrow or two.
