Tee or t-shirt?

Postby Xaprios » 2014-07-18, 20:44

Hey all.

I've one question. I looked around on some clothing websites and I saw different names for what I call a "t-shirt":

Image

Some sites did call it a t-shirt, but different websites did call it a tee. I don't know if there is a difference between the two or if it is like the difference between American and British or something.. Can someone help me out with this?

Thanks!

(If I did make any mistakes, can you please correct me? :))

Both variants are commonly used in American English. Some might consider "tee" more slangy then "t-shirt", but I'm used to seeing both in clothing ads and catalogs.

I agree that "tee" sounds more slangy. Personally, I've never used it. I always say "t-shirt."

"tee" sounds extremely American.

"tee" sounds like something I'd see in an ad aimed at teens, trying to sound hip. I don't think I've ever heard anyone but advertisers use it.

The following are common:
T-shirt
t-shirt
tee-shirt

What ling said. I'm familiar with "tee", but I don't use it.

Etymologically speaking, it should be spelled T-shirt, and not tee shirt since
the T is not abbreviated form, (unlike in teepeeing).

"tee" is just another slang word of T-shirt, but the meanings of T-shirt and Tee are just the same.

Both mean the same, but I prefer t-shirt instead of tee. Sounds more formal and is always clear.
