Found this article where the iconic black t-shirt and its cultural significance and symbolism is analyzed by The Atlantic writer Cameron Kunzelman.

Fun to see that someone else is obsessed with what is perhaps the one simplest piece of clothing, but also one that is powerful in its lack of detail. The writer hints at something which I agree with; that the black t-shirt is so simple and everyday that the choice to wear it can be a way to try to make yourself anything but. It’s almost ridiculously understated, which makes it really fun, from an artistic point of view.
