    I usually just wear a t shirt. I’ve been looking for a place to get some decent prices polos or lightweight button ups to put my company logo on.

    I always wear t shirts. I sweat a lot so in the summer I carry a couple t shirts so I can change into a dry one once I soak the one I have on.

    I always wear tank tops made of cotton. Any other material gets way too hot for the desert. Only cotton seems to dissipate the heat.

    you guys in the heat need to try cool-max I’m a sweater. I sweat when it’s cold outside. These shirts keep me cool and dry.

    I do the cotton t-shirts in the winter, but once summer hits it’s cool-max shirts only.

    Mostly t shirts for me also with the company logo. I have a couple of short sleeve collared shirts if I need something nice on a given day but mostly t shirts in the summer. Sweatshirts with the logo in winter and I have a nice carhart jacket with the company logo also for winter.

    Me too, I sweat when it’s 35*(F.) out. Multiple shirts on a hot day.

    SS T-shirts in the summer for work. Polo shirts for estimates.

    SS T-shirts in the winter with a pull over hoodie. I add my heated Milwaukee jacket if it’s really cold. I like to layer.

    I used to get my shirts and jackets logo’d. Just haven’t done it the last few years.
    I buy the nice cotton T’s from Sam’s Club and Columbia hoodies from Dick’s. They all seem to hold up pretty well.

    NEVER tank tops. (No, No, No! Laughing) I wish I had the body for it!

    I like wearing quick-dry materials…I also sweat a lot and cotton is uncomfortable when wet.

    I like the dry fit shirts, have some nike and adidas and they’re great. Nothing worse then a cotton shirt full of sweat while you’re working.

    I can’t wear polyester of any kind. My body burns like crazy when I wear them. Reason is I have nerve damage in my neck which causes the rest of my body to react funny to heat and cold.

    Glad you guys found that cool max line of shirts. Sounds great! Wish I could wear them 🙁

    I’ve tried some of the shirts that are supposed to wick the moisture away from skin. I didn’t find they worked that well, and within a few wash/wear cycles, I found they started to smell like sweat all the time. I can’t stand that!

    Now, I suppose it could just be a cheap brand. I bought them at Walmart soon sure the quality left a lot to be desired. Perhaps a more expensive brand would have yielded different results. Maybe it’s like Bosch vs. Ryobi!

    I love my Nike dry fit stuff – t shirts and polos! I had workout clothes for my football team in college that were Nike dry fit and despite the ridiculous amount of hours I spent working out, running and practicing in it – they number stunk. Or, maybe it did and I just got used to all of us stinking 🙂 But I think they might also power wash that stuff with all sorts of chemicals.

    Regardless, the polos were not as abused but are great shirts. Though it is definitely way more expensive than other options. I also really like Kohl’s polos, but they do not look quite as sharp – and I am not sure how well they would hold up to work – I am guessing they might snag a lot on wood…
