Words at Play : Top 10 Odd Words for Underwear

#9: Singlet

Singlet usually refers to the one-piece suit a wrestler wears, but the other British meaning describes a sleeveless undershirt.

Why the word singlet? Because it has only one thickness of cloth.

Does that mean there's a doublet? In fact, yes: It was a lined jacket worn by men during the Renaissance.
