Boy am I bummed! Just when I thought Google knew everything, I asked who first referred to a shirt as “western”. Its now official, Google may know most things, but not everything. I re-learned some stuff I already knew, like a first sergeant is sometimes referred to as first shirt.
I doubt that I even referred to any shirt as western when I was a kid. They were just shirts. What we now call western shirts were just what we wore. I wonder why I would expect Google to know when someone, out of everyone in the world, first referred to a shirt as western? I don’t even know when I did.
