What did wife beaters used to be called?

Asked by Kyrie Soto

The term wife beater shirt still hadn’t taken hold, but the shirt went by other slang names that revealed additional stereotypes. … Slang names for the undershirt at this time were “guinea tee” or “dago tee,” using ethnic slurs to define the shirt as something poor, dirty “others” wore.
