Hi
What does the following sentence mean?
"Few have had the popularity or permanence of the T-shirt and tuxedo."

Does it mean that T-shirt and tuxedo have been popular with few people and used by few people continuously?
"Few have had (possessed?) the popularity or permanence of T-shirt" sounds awkward to me..
Coulld you explain the meaning?

Thanks

The t-shirt and tuxedo have had great popularity. Not many other items of clothing have been as popular as the t-shirt and the tuxedo.
