The look of the horizontally striped t-shirt was taken from the sailing style of apparel. This is a great style for someone that is interested in making themselves appear larger than they actually are. For this reason many rugby uniforms include large horizontal stripes. With the increased intimidation factor, it is easy to see how such a look could be beneficial.

Collared shirts on the other hand generally feature vertical lines. These lines cause an illusion that makes a person wearing them look taller and slimmer. Designers know this which is why they tend towards creating shirts of this style.
