    I was thinking of going with some type of button down shirts. What do you guys use? I have been using T shirts.

    I like to use cotton T's. They stratch and give me more flexablity. I stick with a light green color so its not hot and hides some durt. I found some organic cotton T's at Walmart that I really like, they are thiner than normal cotton T's so it keeps me a little cooler when things start to heat up. And I use my T's to wipe the swet off my face, if it doesn't stratch thats kinda hard to do.

    I've always used some kind of vapor wick shirts. Used to use patagonia but they don't make 2xl. These reebok shirts in light gray don't show dirt, are cheap, and will keep you dry. Don't know the exact name but they are reebok shirts with wicking technology.

    I just go with basic tshirts. I've worn button down shirts when I worked at other companies and personally hated it. I felt too restricted.

    I wear cotton t-shirts as well. Lime green, I've also got gray cut offs with green lettering.

    Cotton tees work good for me, have nice nike golf polos embroidered for non work, but though about the dry fit tees...

    i've always worn yellow tees (company color). They keep me relatively cool but show every ounce of dirt I pick up, which can be frightening if it's dry out. I've thought about switching to a button down shirt for a while just never gotten around to it, something like a mechanic's work shirt, seems like it'd keep the temp down. how $$$ are the embroidered polos?
