During the 20th century the T-shirt became one of the most widely worn fashion items. It is a cheap and easy means for people and companies to express political, individual, and commercial messages. A gender-neutral T-shirt is often considered one of the most democratic items of clothing, because it is very ambivalent compared to others. It can be worn at work or at home, when doing sports or at a reception. The T-shirt reflects the best and worst features of our modern society.
