Cheap t-shirts have been a part of American fashion for quite some time, and they come in all colors and logos. White t-shirts made famous by the bad boys of the fifties were the beginning of America’s love affair with the style — though at the time they were known as undershirts.
Sometime in the mid nineteen sixties cheap t-shirts became a favored way to advertise. They were manufactured in droves announcing the names of businesses trying to make a mark by leaving their name on as many lips as possible. They were an excellent way to get out a business name and their slogan. A catchy slogan blazoned across a cheap t-shirt and than given away for customer loyalty was a great way to advertise and bring in more customers. In essence cheap t-shirts became walking billboards announcing the business and the address of the business while walking around town on the owners back.
