After World War II, it became more common to see veterans wearing their uniform pants with their T-shirts as leisure wear. But it was not until the 1950s that the T-shirt became a garment in its own right. Popularity grew after icons such as Marlon Brando and James Dean were seen on screen in white tee shirts as outer pieces, eventually reaching current status. These early-day tee shirts were usually made from inexpensive cotton jersey, with a simple cut-and-sew construction and ribbed collar, making them easily accessible to production for a mass consumer. The fit was somewhat relaxed compared to its underwear counterparts, as they no longer needed to fit snugly under uniforms. Its versatility also allows it to be the ideal support for a slogan and graphic tees, often used in military outfits to represent a regiment of soldiers.
