Business shirt

A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body. Originally an item of underwear worn exclusively by men, it has become in American English a catch-all term for almost any upper-body garment other than outerwear such as sweaters or coats, or undergarments such as bras (the term "top" is sometimes used in ladieswear). In British English, a shirt is more specifically a garment with a collar, sleeves with cuffs, and a full vertical opening with buttons; what is known in American English as a dress shirt.

A Brief History of the Shirt

The shirt was an item of men's underwear until the twentieth century. [1] Although the woman's chemise was a closely related garment to the man's[2], it is the man's garment that become the modern shirt. In the middle ages it was a plain, undyed garment worn next to the skin and under regular garments. In medieval artworks, the shirt is only visible (uncovered) on humble characters, such as shepherds, prisoners, and penitents.[3] In the seventeenth century men's shirts were allowed to show, with much the same erotic import as visible underwear today.[4] Even as late as 1879, a visible shirt with nothing over it was considered improper.
