A-shirt is short for "athletic shirt" [ citation needed ] because it is often worn in sports, such as basketball and track-and-field events. In the United States and Canada, it is commonly known as a tank top and also by the pejorative nicknames wife beater sometimes just beater and guinea tee or dago tee " guinea " and " dago " being US ethnic slurs for people of Italian ethnicity.
In the UK, an A-shirt, especially when used as an undershirt, is known as a vest compare the American usage of " vest ". In the Philippines, when used as an undershirt it is called a sando.

In addition to athletic usage, A-shirts have traditionally been used as undershirts, especially with suits and dress shirts.
The build of an A-shirt is simple: One usually has large armholes and neck holes and a neckline that can reach down as far as the bottom of the chest. Women's A-shirts have smaller holes, to conceal their breasts. In almost all cases, they are buttonless, collarless, and pocketless.

Out of interest - can this be made using strips of jersey rather than the elastic? Say like a neck binding. Thanks for sharing it with us - I'm looking forward to giving it a try.
I've never heard anyone in Canada or on American tv call it anything else, at least! Maybe if you added that to the description, more NA people would find it through searches?
I always knew them as vest-tops back "in the old country" England but here in Australia they are singlets. And I wear them all year round as extra layers now in winter, and alone in summer. I plan on using the pattern to re-use some of the meaningful t-shirts I have kept in my drawer for years, many having survived the emigration just to sit unseen. Can't wait to get started! Thanks so much for the pattern, my daughter wears these a lot.
