The first major music festival was the legendary Woodstock, held in 1969 in New York. An expected 50,000 revellers swelled to more than 400,000, and were entertained by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Janis Joplin and The Who;

 

 

 

 

the festival phenomena was born…

The following year saw the Isle of Wight festival play host to Bob Dylan, The Moody Blues, T Rex and the Doors, performing to a record-breaking 700,000 people. Sadly the festival was a victim of its own success, and objections by residents meant that the Isle of Wight’s answer to  Woodstock would disappear for 32 years.

            

The founders of the Glastonbury and Stonehenge festivals took their inspiration from the IOW however, and although Stonehenge fell by the wayside in 1984 due to concerns about the preservation of the stones, Glastonbury is still going from strength to strength, and in 2009 the IOW Festival was back, making the UK the prime European destination for music lovers worldwide.

The earliest T-shirt dates back to sometime between the Spanish–American War and 1913, when the U.S. Navy began issuing them as undergarments. The word "T-shirt" became part of American English by the 1920s, and appeared in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Following World War II, it became common to see veterans wearing their uniform trousers with their T-shirts as casual clothing. They became even more popular in the 1950s after Marlon Brando wore one in A Streetcar Named Desire, finally achieving status as fashionable, stand-alone, outer-wear garments. Often boys wore them while doing chores and playing outside, eventually opening up the idea of wearing them as general-purpose casual clothing.

Famous people through the ages to wear just a simple plain T-Shirt are Marlon Brando, James DeanDavid Beckham and Adam Levine to name just a few, one of the reasons we now offer an extensive plain T-Shirt collection called our essential collection, and is extremely popular with our loyal followers of Wolfe & Hunter

Printed T-shirts were in limited use by 1942 when an Air Corps Gunnery School T-shirt appeared on the cover of Life magazine. In the 1960s, printed T-shirts gained popularity for self-expression as well for advertisements, protests, and souvenirs.
