I guess Hugh’s da man when it comes to wearing undershirts in movies. So, who made the iconic Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine tank top in the X-Men Origins sequel?
Tug on Male Movie Fashion: Flyboys & Australia
If you remember, back in November a reader wrote in wondering what undershirt the actors were wearing in the movie Flyboys (2006).
While I was researching that, I also ran across Hugh Jackon wearing a Henley/Shearer’s undershirt in the Epic movie “Australia”.
However, now we’re in search of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine undershirt.
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Tank Top Undershirt
Well, Hugh’s back on the big screen again in the X-Men prequel Origins (in theaters on May 1).
In the movie, he is wearing a paper-thin ribbed tank top. Inquiring minds want to know which one he’s wearing.
According to Style Hunter, Costumer Louise Mingenbach chose ”Richelieu” ribbed tanks by Swiss brand Zimmerli in order to show off Wolverine’s buff arms.
Specifically, she liked the top’s ”traditional look.”
Mingenbach had each tank aged to a different level of distress, using about 50 in all.

For those interested, the special rib design (wide and narrow ribs in the same fabric) in this high-end tank from Zimmerli is known as a Variegated Rib.
