T-shirt: a thin, knitted shirt which is pulled over the head to cover most of a person's torso. It is ususally buttonless, collarless, with a round neck and short sleeves.
Made back in the 19th C. for the use of undergarments, the t-shirt is now used for a variety of uses. It was first used by miners and stevedores to help cover the body in the hot temperature months. It was made comfortable by its absorbensy, durable quality, ease of cleaning, and breathable textile. The US Navy then issued t-shirts as uniform during the Spanish American War, making the shirt popular in the US. Workers of all occupations began including the t-shirt in their work attire. It was then included in boy attire. In the 1960s, the t-shirt took a hit. It now became used as a medium for wearable art and expression. Today, they are used for politics, protesting, art, pop culture, and memoir. They are even used to advertise for businesses, schools, corporations, etc.
What makes this object/artifact so design great is because of its inexpensive, comfortable, multiuse qualities. People can even create their own designed t-shirt through tie-dye or even using markers or paint. This is a good design artifact.
