The 1950’s and Advent of T-shirts into Commercial Markets:
The 1950 were one of the toughest times in Europe as the World Wars of the past 30 years had left once Powerful and Immortal Deemed Empires into dust, with the demise of the Germans and the deplorable state of Britain. The Ingenuity Machine of the Renaissance Era had exhausted and most of the Brilliance had been taken to United States as Prisoners of War. The United States thanks to these Resourceful and Inventive People became a Global Super Power.
As these inventions kept on Coming the Textile industry saw for the first time an Accessory become an Integral Apparel. The T-shirt established itself as the Forbearer Unisex Apparel wear.
