Shirt is a type of top that can be worn between the inner and outer jackets or can be worn separately. Meaning in the business dictionary of the shirt: shirt, a top with a front placket and sleeves with buttoned cuffs, often worn close to the body.


The Origin of Shirts

The earliest shirts appeared in China's Zhou Dynasty, called middle garments, and later called middle single. It was called close-fitting shirt in han dynasty. In the 16th century BC, the 18th dynasty of ancient Egypt had shirts, which were collarless, sleeveless tunics. The shirt worn by the Normans in the 14th century had a collar and sleeves. In the 16th century, it was prevalent in Europe to embroider the shirt collar and chest, or to decorate the neckline, cuffs, and chest lace. At the end of the 18th century, the British wore hard turtleneck shirts. During the Victorian era, high-necked shirts were eliminated, forming modern stand-up lapel western-style shirts. In the 1840s, Western-style shirts were introduced to China. Most shirts were originally worn by men, but were gradually adopted by women in the 1950s, and have become one of the most common clothing.

British shirts are formal shirts in terms of style.

The characteristics of American shirts are the same as American suits. They are looser, have fat sleeves, and do not pay attention to tailoring to fit the body curve. The collar of a standard American shirt has a collar buckle, which is used to fasten the collar at the center of the vision. The style of American shirts is strictly not a formal shirt, but more suitable for casual vacation or home shirts.
