quicko: t-shirts

So I might need a bit of help on this one, Americans, but I was always under the impression that a "t-shirt" was one of those standard, "I walked 10 miles for the March of Dimes" unattractive cotton numbers. Other shirts with short sleeves but from, say, The Gap, would be considered "shirts," right? Not here. Those are all t-shirts, and a shirt shirt is collared and buttoned ... I think.

I would have to go with, any basic shirt is a T-shirt. So long as there's no collar or buttons, they can be long sleeved, fitted and even free with donation.

I would have to agree with the Australian version too. From very casual to rather dressy, tees are basic shirts originally based on the men's undershirt concept, though now can even be rather pricey and much more stylish.
