Brief History

Back in the days before our parents were born, a T-shaped garments were just about getting popular as daily wear. Originally made from silk or wool, the shape did resemble the letter T; the sleeves made the top horizontal line, and the body represented the vertical line in the center. Intended as undergarments, they came into the more acceptable piece of fashion scene in the beginning of 20th century. Following World War II, it was common to see veterans wearing T-shirts and uniform trousers. T-shirts finally achieved its status as being fashionable in the 1950s, partly because Marlon Brando wore one in A Streetcar Named Desire. Boys all over the country began to wear the same outfit while playing outside or helping their mothers wash the dishes; afterwards, T-shirts have been internationally yet unofficially approved as universal casual stand-alone outwear clothing. As more variations appeared over time, long sleeve T-shirts made their way into the scene as well.

Layering Style

 One thing that makes long sleeve T-shirts popular as all-season outfit is their ability to bring seemingly endless possibility of combination with other casual wear collections.

If you decide to wear it without any layering, it is best to go with graphical or multicolor options. Graphics, patterns, and multiple colors give strong sense of personality and boldness. A couple of examples from Phoenix Clothing should give you an idea why long sleeve is an easy-going versatile garment.
