By the way, what do you call this clothes?

Is it a business shirt or dress shirt?

In Japan, it is called “ワイシャツ waishatsu”.
The origins of the word “ワイシャツ waishatsu” date back to 1873.
Westerners who came to Japan said “white shirt”, which japanese people at that time heard as “ワイシャツ waishatsu”.

This is the origin of the word “ワイシャツ waishatsu”.
We used to wear it as underwear, but we started to wear it as an outerwear.
“ワイシャツ Waishatsu” are mainly clothing worn by men under suits.


Anyway, listening and pronunciation are difficult in any pieriod.
