It can't be coincidence that the word for T-Shirt and soccer(football) are this close. Can someone provide the etymology(origins of the word)?
We have plenty of clothes names coming from the names of sports! :)
Футболка = T-shirt
Бейсболка = this kind of cap (usually just кепка)
Теніска = polo shirt?
Баскетболка = well, basketball tank top
Maybe even more that I don't know of :)
A fine visual presentation! Молодць!
because one plays football usually wearing T-shirt)
Why can't we use the word "shirt" as well?
Absolutely can't. Shirt -- is actually "office shirt" only.
please. tee shirt is fine, too.
