Also known as trailer park attire.

A classless piece of shit rag with 4 holes, used as a garment to cover the torso.
Unless you're doing sports or working out while wearing it, it pretty much signals you're trash.
Predominantly worn by males who lack character; mainly slobs, thugs, and males looking to attract equally simple minded females.
"What's up with all those guys wearing wifebeaters in public?"

"I know, right? It's like living in a trailer park, or taking a stroll through a bad neighborhood."

"Yeah, it's kinda sad. I guess it's just a result of the cultural degradation. Nobody dresses with style or class anymore."

a wifebeater is more of a lifestyle than a shirt per se. usually it is white and ribbed in texture. frowned upon by some, it expresses what the french call "savoir vivre". given the anthropological approach of the shirt, it doesn't really matter what shape the user is in, as long as he believes that by wearing a wifebeater, he expresses that everyone in this world should enjoy life without harming others while looking damn sexy.
He's been wearing a wifebeater since he's one year old. Therefore, I trust him.

Everybody was wearing a button-down shirt, but he was wearing a wifebeater. Hence, he knows how to party.
