A white, tank top typically worn by white trash men who beat their wives. NO wifebeater is complete without a 10 pound overweight/underweight guy to wear it and mustard stains :)

In Australian slang, "wifebeater" always referred to a dark blue singlet, such as is typically worn by truckers. It's only recently that we in Australia have heard the word coming from other parts of the world, and elsewhere it refers to a white singlet.

South London slang for the beer "Stella Artois" I know it's not nice but it's slang.It doesn't have to mean domestic violence rather just a pop at the girlfriend or missus.
Me and the lads had a couple of wife beaters and went clubbing.
