It's said the earliest appearance of the men's t-shirt was in the U.S. Navy, sometime after the Spanish-American War began, when white cotton shirts were issued to sailors and Marines to be worn under their uniforms. By World War II, it became common for members of the armed forces and veterans to wear them in service and at home, as evidenced by photographs throughout magazines of the era.

But it wasn't until the 1951 film A Streetcar Named Desire, which featured Marlon Brando wearing plain men's t-shirts, that this modest piece of clothing became a popular, everyday item of outerwear across the nation. Today, t-shirts are seen everywhere from the workplace to the red carpet, as a means of promoting products, brands, political statements, pop culture, and, of course, custom men's t-shirts or men’s polo shirts featuring a company's logo or message.
