Star Army Undershirt

Star Army undershirts are a series of T-Shirt-style undershirts used by the Star Army of Yamatai since YE 21.

Star Army undershirts cost 1 to 5 KS each and are available from any Star Army Clothing Store or Star Army Surplus Store.

History

T-Shirts have been in use long before the current era. When the Star Army of Yamatai was formed, it began using them in its duty uniforms as an undershirt for duty uniform jackets like the Star Army Jacket, Type 35.

A black T-shirt was used with the Star Army exercise uniform from YE 27 to YE 29 when it was replaced by a white ringer T-shirt as part of the Star Army Exercise Uniform, Type 29. When the Star Army Exercise Uniform, Type 38 was introduced, it used a Star Army Regal Blue T-shirt in an attempt to use the same T-Shirt for the exercise uniform as the undershirt used for the duty uniforms such as the Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 35. However, the dark blue was not visible enough and it was replaced with a white ringer T-shirt again to create the Star Army Exercise Uniform, Type 40.

Design

The Type 38 T-shirt is made from a soft artificial cotton-like material that wicks away moisture and provides passive cooling. It has a moderate thickness. The shirt-is extremely bacteria-resistant, which helps combat body odor.

Type 21 T-shirts are are made from jersey-knit cotton.

It is common for the shirts to have a Star Army Hinomaru printed on them or sewn on as a patch.

The T-Shirts have been produced in a number of colors:
