The plain T-shirt is more than just a foundational wardrobe piece, it’s the building block of the male wardrobe. Since the piece transitioned from undergarment to acceptable everyday wear following World War II—courtesy of off-duty GIs—the plain T-shirt has become an institution. Aptly named for its “t”-like shape, the T-shirt is, at its most basic, simply two sleeves, a rounded “crew” neck and squared off body. Yet despite its highly-specific definition, the T-shirt is in fact wildly diverse, available in every shape, fabric and weight you could imagine. Given its ubiquitous, essential and downright overwhelming stature, finding the best T-shirt for any specific purpose is today a herculean task. Thankfully, Dry Clean Only is here to help.
