They were good shirts: warm, inexpensive, and made of durable flannel. It was the fashion in the ’70s to wear them with an unbuttoned waistcoat (“vest” in American), which could be picked up from a second-hand shop or Ó Máille’s. Tourists then caught on to the look, and suddenly the grandfather shirts were everywhere. After that, to paraphrase Yogi Berra, nobody wore them any more—by 1980 at the latest, no self-respecting Galway local would have been caught dead in one. I see from Deirdre’s answer that they had a resurgence in the 1990s. And I’ve noticed a version of them on sale at Dublin Airport, so I expect they are being bought by tourists still. Though if the ones I saw at the airport are any indication, the shirts are no longer made of old-fashioned flannel and are far from inexpensive. I was five years old, on a family road trip in the early 80s. My parents had decided to eat at a little truck stop diner, and I was pretty happy about that. I ordered my chocolate chip pancake and sat contentedly doodling on the paper “Monkey see, monkey do” placemat.
When I lived in Galway in the 1970s, there were still a couple of shops (Ó Máille’s on Dominick Street, Sonny Molloy’s on High Street) that sold them, mainly to older countrymen from Aran or Connemara. Galway was a center of Irish folk and traditional music (this was the era of Planxty, the Bothy Band and local heroes Dé Danann), and the collarless shirts became popular with musicians. From there they spread into the broader population, or least, the sector of the population that was into the arts, pharmaceutical experimentation, and the craic.
I see people wearing shirts for assorted universities they never went to, various brands they don’t work for, and so on. If someone wants to show support for the England team, why should we be bothered, wherever they come from? “Grandfather” shirts appear to come and go in popularity—I haven’t seen anyone in Ireland wearing them in decades. As Deirdre Beecher points out in her answer, at one time everyone wore shirts with detachable collars. By the time I was growing up in the 1960s, however, they were literally more likely to be associated with men of the grandfather generation—I don’t recall my own father ever wearing one.
