Do You Like To Wear T-Shirts?

Marketers of T-shirts say that the average person has more than 25 T-shirts in his/her chest of drawers or closet. What about you? Funny thing: I don’t wear T-shirts at all, except a couple oversize ones that I sleep in once in a while in the summertime. However, I have collected some very NICE T-shirts from my traveling days. A colorful T-shirt, usually with the name of the country, was one of the souvenirs that I always purchased when I traveled to different countries. I still have all of them in a plastic tub. None of them have ever been worn. My daughter suggested that I make a quilt of them and I’ve considered it but don’t really know where to begin. I’ve noticed, especially at the beach, that shops have dozens of racks of T-shirts for sale. I wonder who invented T-shirts. They’ve been around for many years. I remember that my father always wore a white T-shirt underneath his button-up shirt, even in the summer. What about you? Do you like to wear T-shirts?

I don't wear T-shirts because they have no collar. I like collars.

Maybe fodder for another post on the invention of the T-shirt:
The t-shirt is arguably the most popular outer garment in the entire world. Coming in a range of styles, colors and sizes there is quite literally a t-shirt for everyone. But where did this iconic garment come from and how did it become so popular?

@MALUSE Wow! Great link to the history of T-shirts. Thanks for adding to the discussion. I was hoping that someone would expand on the information.

I don't like T-shirts either. I don't think they fit my personality. I like to dress up when I go out somewhere.

I have a lot of band tees, I don't have many plan t-shirts. I don't even own any blouses or things like that haha I love t-shirts, especially when they are huge.

I wear t shirts on a daily basis. They are comfortable and suit me too.

They are comfortable, if the fabric is soft.

T-shirts are comfortable, I think. I just have never gotten into the habit of wearing them. I like a different style.

tank tops are popular too, for those who have pretty arms. I don't like to see them on older persons like me whose arms are a bit flabby.

I never wear t shirts, they just don't look good on me. I like the idea of somehow making a quilt with them. We have a lot of crafty myLotters who could probably give you some ideas.

T-shirts don't look good on me either. At least, I don't think so. Yes some myLotters have made some suggestions for "how-tos" on Youtube. I looked at them but it just seems so complicated and I have none of the tools I need to make a quilt.

@IreneVincent How about a photo collage of all the shirts in a pretty frame?

@1creekgirl Now, I never thought of that. Thanks for the idea. I really like that idea. Then, I could just give the shirts to my kids and grandkids and let them wear them but I would still "have them" as a souvenir. Thank you so much.

I like T-shirts and have a few but I don't think I'd have 25.

Some have much more than 25, so I guess the AVERAGE person has 25, when you factor those who have more with those who have less. I have less.

@IreneVincent Having read Malu's comment I realise more of mine are polo shirts with collars.

T-shirts are comfortable. I like to wear tham, but I just will not have so many T-shirts in my wardrobe.

I guess t-shirts are popular in many countries. They are comfortable, especially if they are made from soft fabric.

I like wearing big t-shirts when I'm at my place. I love pairing them with pajama bottoms.

Yes, I don't think t-shirts are very fashionable. But, OK to wear for sports and leisure.

Yes, that's definitely a plus, easy laundering and no ironing.

I wear short-sleeved T-shirts in the summer and long sleeved-T-shirts in winter. I only wear plain T-shirts, no words or graphics on a T-shirt for me. The majority are black. Love the look of black.

T-shirts are popular in many countries and that makes sense, because they are comfortable and easy to launder. I was just thinking that if the average person has 25 t-shirts, there must be BILLIONS of t-shirts in this world right now.
