Wifebeater Shirt

Wifebeater Shirt: A wifebeater shirt is a sleeveless, tank-top/singlet style, white shirt (undershirt). The name arose from news stories and movies (beginning in 1947) that associated this undershirt with actual wife beaters. Two good articles can be found in these word blogs: Word for Your Enjoyment and Words@Random.
