    On another thread there were some comments made about the use of t-shirts.
    So I would like to know who does what during those hot summer days. I always wear a t-shirt, I feel it keeps a lot of the sweat and hopefully makes me feel a little more dry!

    I wear a white undershirt under my uni, without it I would soak through my browns. The t-shirt absorbs and evaporates most of the sweat before it gets to my uniform.

    I have never worn one in the Summer time. I just get soaked in sweat. I don't wear antiperspirants because they break my skin out. I think I will experiment and wear one tomorrow. Does a regular T-shirt or athletic T-shirt work best? I hate that my Infonotices get soaked now. I carry my flip phone in my other pocket, it seems to be doing alright.

    Over9, maybe we should do another Poll. Who wears underwear in the Summer?:surprised:

    Under-armor always! My workshirts never show sweat. If you think its too expensive get the walmart version, it works just as well.

    I always wear a t-shirt. It must be 100% cotton. It definitely helps.

    I usually wear a t-shirt but if it is realy stinkin' hot out I will wear Under Armour. I don't have enough to wear one all 5 days of the week so I save the UA for the really humid days.

    Good point Tooner. I think Over9five wears a T-shirt because the A/C in his tractor is turned down too low!

    I need a T shirt for my head. These new Twin Hill hats starts turning green after it's been sweat in a lot. And it stays that way after you wash it.

    I wear a 'wife beater'. I think it helps. I take your poll to mean that a T-shirt is an actual short sleeved T-shirt.

    govols019 You smell that?

    I wear a T-shirt because I can't stand for my hamburger meat to show.

    I wear what is commonly called a "wife beater". Is that a "T-shirt"?

    Tried a T shirt once.
    Never again.
    I sweat too much for two layers to evaporate in this humidity.
    The under armour shirts sound like they might be worth the money.
    On a side note, I wear two pairs of socks year round.
    A very thin all cotton tennis sock under my cotton UPS socks.
    Cool in summer, warm in winter.
    When I take my shoes off the outer UPS sock is damp, the inner thin sock is dry and so are my feet.
    Capillary action works.

    I always wear a tank top. helps keep the brown shirt dry. I also like the shirts that do not tuck in. More air movement and easier to move in
