    I have khaki colored shirts, they are not too hot and don't show as much dirt as a lighter colored shirt.

    For less then 10 bucks a shirt you could invest less then a 100.00 bucks and be set for a while. If you do T shirts get the Beefy T's they are a little thicker and last a long time.

    Light gray. You would be surprised at how cheaply some good tees with a screen printing costs. Not much more than buying regular tees.

    Dark colors are out... too hot. khaki, light gray are my choices.

    I use the fruit of the loom 4 pack gray t's from Wallie World, costs 10.00 and had a friend embroider 5 shirts next to nothing. The shirts are light weight and helps keep things cooler. I have noticed that the usual screen print t's are heavier and hotter. Plus, the gray reflects heat radiation from the sun much better than any of the darker colors. A washing machine cleans my stuff great. I've used them for years and yet to stain them permanently. :weightlifter:
