It seems as though t-shirts are a staple part of our wardrobe. It’s hard for us to imagine waking up in the morning and not throwing on an Artic Tees’ tee and a pair of jeans. Yet, not too long ago wearing a t-shirt in public would have been the height of infamy. T-shirts with cool, graphic designs would have not been an acceptable form of outerwear; in fact, t-shirts were seen as undergarments. It was only thanks to American workers in farming and agricultural industries that the t-shirt began to become an acceptable form of outerwear. In these industries, due to the intense heat experienced, a t-shirt was seen as a better and more modest alternative to being without a top completely. By the 1950s, t-shirts were seen as a cool and edgy outer garment to be worn by all. It’s hard to believe today that going out wearing a t-shirt would have been so controversial 100 years ago. So thank you, workers from olden times, if it wasn’t for you we might not be Arctic Tees today. We may have been Arctic shirts instead.
