A shirt is a type of clothing on Roblox that covers the torso and arm body parts of a character with a texture defined by the shirt's ShirtTemplate property. Shirts and pants were released on April 24, 2008.
Users can create shirts by creating an image based on a template and then publish them using the shirt ContentBuilder. After being reviewed by a moderator and approved, the user then can sell or use the shirt. Only Roblox Premium members can make and sell shirts, but everyone can buy them. The Roblox Premium member can sell them for Robux.
On April 23, 2008, Shedletsky uploaded the official announcement for shirts & pants to his YouTube channel, titled: Shirts... And Pants. Pants Pants Pants Pants, with its music composed by Stealth Pilot.
A slightly popular program to use for shirts/pants is Paint.NET, a paint program, because of its ability to make shirts transparent. A few users have published videos that demonstrate shirt shading using Paint.NET or GIMP. and MS Paint.
The price floor for shirts was originally 10 Robux, but was decreased to 5 Robux due to the removal of the Tickets currency in March 2016.
Templates are tools that create the basic layout of clothing and help guide creators in designing their clothing. Roblox has created templates to help content creators create clothing to work with almost all character types.
