T-Shirt – A Fashionable Casual Clothing item
A T-shirt, also known as t-shirt, is a casual style of garment usually made of cotton, canvas or a similar light, breathable cloth and called a t-shirt, short for tees, while neckties are called neckties. Traditionally, it always has short sleeves and a classic round, V-shaped neckline, without a collar, known as a boat neck. T-shirts are usually made of a light and stretchable material and are fairly easy to take care of. There is no need for ironing. You may easily wash it by hand, by machine or in a washing machine, depending on the material.
T-shirts have many alternative sleeve lengths, called sleeve-panels. Some are long, tapered to fit over the arm, others reach up to the elbow, and there are many other options, depending on the style and the fabric. Usually, the longer and taller t-shirts have wider, longer sleeves, while those of shorter stature usually have shorter, stitched together sleeves. The sleeve-panels can be sewn or printed on the sleeve.
When a T-shirt is manufactured, the fabric is not completely finished until the manufacturers finish the cutting of the fabric. After the cutting, the sleeves are folded, lined up and, when pressed, the fabric is laid flat. A T-shirt is then cut into pieces according to the size of the individual wearer and is bound with elastic or a similar material to keep it in place. This bound fabric is called a neck-line. The neck-line is then cut along the seams and arms, either by machine or manually, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The completed item is then shipped to the buyers with the label still attached to it.
