Chapter 35 - Dickie Dirt - Shirt

Leaving Blaney Crescent behind, probably for the last time.

The history of the shirt is interesting because it was originally classed as an item of underwear worn by men only, before Men Only appeared as a chauvinistic magazine. The oldest found example of a shirt was made of linen, discovered in an Egyptian tomb at Tarkan and said to be worn in 3,000 BC. That’s how far back dickie dirts go. It was a dickie dirty cream colour and there was no sign of a button-down collar or slots on the sleeves for cufflinks.
