Why Are Tee Shirts Still Such A Wonderful Clothing Choice?

Unlike other kinds of clothing that are tricky to get on and off or require a lot of maintenance, tee shirts can simply be thrown on and enjoyed. These shirts are absolutely perfect for relaxing around the house, taking care of errands or hanging out with friends.
