About this title


A fabulous tribute to the one piece of clothing worn by people of every age, gender, and shape, "The White T" captures the zeitgeist of our times. With striking photographs and sophisticated text, "The White T" traces the colorful history of the classic garment worn by billions all over the world. From the first Hanes version sold in the 1930s for twenty-four cents to its transformation into the ultimate in cool (not to mention sexy) when worn by James Dean, Elvis Presley and Marlon Brando, "The White T" has become part of our culture.

The significance of the white T goes beyond fashion, to encompass the political, sexual and social trends of the past decades. Whether tie-dyed, stamped with a slogan or icon, torn, slashed, or designed, these shirts make a statement, and everyone from presidents to rock stars, bikers to bankers, babies to baby boomers, has at least one white T. Celebrating this universally worn piece of clothing, "The White T" is a chronicle of cultural history, and like its quirky and expressive subject, in itself a work of art.
