T-shirts are probably the most popular garment of clothing in the world. Worn by both men and women from Europe to Asia, there are very few cultures in which the T-shirt is not considered a wardrobe staple. In recent years, they have become increasingly popular with the younger generations who wear T-shirts to make a fashion statement, and in particular young boys have chosen the T-shirt as their upper body garment of choice.
T-shirts come in many different styles, although the most common has short sleeves and a round neck, T-shirts can also have long sleeves, double layers, or V-necks. They can also be made out of various types of fabric (although the most common is cotton) and they can be made to fit the body in different ways. Many boys like to wear loose cotton T-shirts for casual everyday wear, but may wear tighter fitting, ribbed T-shirts with a smart pair of jeans, or under a smart sweater for more formal wear. The fact that the T-shirt is so versatile is one of the reasons why it has remained so fashionable for decades.
T-shirts were originally invented as a form of under garment, similar to a vest. Many boys still wear them as originally intended, especially in the winter months, however these days it would not be appropriate to remove your sweater and just wear your T-shirt on its own.
One style of T-shirt which is extremely popular with boys is the double layer T-shirt. These T-shirts have a long sleeved top underneath with a short sleeved top over the top (the two are attached). These tops usually come in dark colors and often the top underneath has a round neck and the short sleeved T-shirt on top has a V-neck which allows the first layer to show through. Double layer T-shirts are often worn by boys doing sports such as skateboarding or biking as they offer protection from falls, but are also fairly light and airy so they can be worn in all different types of weather.
Another style of T-shirt worn often by boys is the polo neck T-shirt. These have a collar on them (similar to a shirt collar, but more open and less rigid). The collar makes them more formal and smart than regular T-shirts and they are seen as suitable attire for wearing to smart-casual restaurants and other similar venues. As many young boys and teenage boys feel comfortable in very formal button up shirts, many prefer to wear polo neck T-shirts with a smart pair of dark denim jeans and some smart shoes. This allows them to look smart but remain comfortable and fashionable and put some of their own fashion sense and style across.
Boys' T shirts [http://www.joebloggsclothing.co.uk/store/c152/2-152/Home//BOYS-T-SHIRTS/details.aspx] are probably one of the best selling lines in the fashion industry simply because there is such a wide variety of choice out there, there is something to suit everyone. It is hard to imagine a day when T-shirts will no longer be in fashion as there is no similar alternative available and no other garment which performs as practically and conveniently as the T-shirt.
