I have been asked to write about monograms on the men's shirts. Main question was - what is the proper positioning for it on the shirt? But before this, let’s examine the basics and understand exactly why one would want to do it, how it should look like, and the last, but not the least - where the initials should be placed? First, let’s start with some history: It is widely known that monograming traces back to Ancient Greek times, when coins were marked with monograms of the town’s first letters. Soon after monograms were adopted by artists to identify their works. Followed by nobility, who started using its family monograms to mark their personal belongings, which began to associate with ostentation.
