From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A ringer T-shirt is a T-shirt in which the jersey shirt fabric is one color, but the ribbing used for the collar and the sleeve bands are of a contrasting color.

Ringer T-shirt

Traditionally, the most common ringer colors were white with black ribbing. Ringers were introduced in the United States in the mid-1960s and gained popularity in the late 1960s, especially among youth and the rock-and-roll subculture.

Ringers grew in popularity even more as the 1970s began and remained popular throughout that decade. But in the 1980s, other fashions eclipsed the ringer T-shirt.

In the early 2000s, ringer T-shirts experienced a resurgence, mostly among teens, and gained popularity in the first decade, albeit at a reduced level from their 1970s heyday.
