King of Cool : History of the T-Shirt

Even the t-shirt has a history. 

In 1910, the U.S. Navy started issuing them to sailors. They’d originated in New York from the “union suit,” a onesie with leggings and buttons down the middle that men wore as an undergarment.  By this time, men had already begun cutting the bottom part off their own union suits and wearing only the top. The Navy just cut to the chase. The T shape of the shirt made its name pretty inevitable. By the 1920s, “t-shirt” had made it into the Merriam-Webster Dictionary and other industries like farming and mining.  It was the veterans of WWII who popularized t-shirts as something men could wear in public. Service men started wearing them with uniform trousers while doing chores and other activities outside the house. Soon, the mainstream caught on.

It doesn’t get much more mainstream than Hollywood. When Marlon Brando hit the silver screen in his iconic t-shirt during 1951’s “A Streetcar Named Desire” it was clenched. The t-shirt craze had officially begun, and the year that movie was released…it was reported that over $180 Million in t-shirts were sold.  Before Streetcar, there were only loose t-shirts. But Brando’s costume crew decided to shrink his t-shirts before sewing him up in them from the back. It was in this pivotal movie-making moment that the fitted t-shirt was born.  Brando no doubt took these new t-shirts to a whole new level when he began wearing them offscreen. Paired his rugged boots, bad boy motorcycle, and devil-may-care grin, the white fitted t-shirt became the ideal for men everywhere.

The heritage behind such an iconic piece certainly hasn't gone un-noticed at Ace Rivington.  We've worked very hard to come up with our perfect tee, in a number of options.  Like everything with the brand, there was lots of thought, research and history that went into planning our tees business.  We finally landed with a great Made in America tee that we love.  This video shares how we got there…and how your feedback helped, keep it comin.  

Thanks Much,

Beau

    Good day everyone! This article is very important to whom it may concern, take your time to read it through. The question you should ask yourself, who do you run to when you get scammed? Well! Never expect anything to work out unless you decide to take risks and give it a trial. I’m a type of person who likes investing, therefore, I was convinced to invest through my Trust Wallet that there will so be much interest in return, which I eventually did, made a deposit of about $437k worth of USDT to these fraudsters through my Trust wallet. Was also asked to make another $6k to unlock my bonuses and to keep the investment status active, I also made the deposit but nothing changed. They decided ghost me immediately I noticed that they were scammers, leaving me in deep worries about the whereabout of my money. It was deep and I had no idea on what to do next. I began making enquiries, came across several recovery experts but nothing changed. But then, I read a review about Bliss Paradox Recovery in a google group, some sorts of hack magicians I quoted. They helped me, eventually, I have to be one of their testifiers. I will be sharing their contact details. Reach out to them and good luck with your funds recovery.
