A brief history of the shirt
It is difficult to say exactly when the shirt, as we know it, originated. Certainly, shirt-like garments were worn as early as 700-800 B.C., mainly by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. These were worn as outer garments, often in several layers, in cool weather. During the 1500s, the shirt was considered a luxury item that was worn by persons of stature. It was during this period that the shirt first became properly visible, since coats and jackets were open at the front. This led to the extravagantly ornamental shirtfront; the more beautiful the shirtfront, the finer the gentleman. As a rule, only the visible front of the shirt was decorated, and often a loose shirtfront sufficed.
The shirt as outerwear
Eventually, the shirt-like garments became shorter and more similar to modern-day shirts (the words shirt and short share a common origin). After having been worn mainly as outer garments, they were later worn as intermediate garments, and from the Renaissance, aprox. 1480-1510, immediately next to the body.
Breakthrough in the 1800s
It was not until the Biedermeier period, in the early to mid-1800s, that the shirt as we know it made its major breakthrough. However, it was not until around 1900 that truly comfortable, simple and practical shirts were manufactured, by among others, Stenströms.
