The 'Brando' is a classic crew-cut t-shirt by men's label, Gallantoro. It's inspired by the 'bachelor's undershirt' which was designed for military and naval men who lacked sewing skills to repair standard buttoned shirts and helped avoid embarrassment when all their buttons had fallen off, no longer leaving their torso's exposed! They became standard issue in the early 1900's for the U.S Navy.

In terms of fashion, the t-shirt is relatively new, it wasn't until 1920 that the term "t-shirt" was added to the English dictionary, thanks to F. Scott Fitzgerald's use of the word in his novel 'This Side of Paradise'. Although the t-shirt was created in the early 20th century, it was primarily worn as an undershirt until Marlon Brando and James Dean popularized it as a standalone outerwear garment.
