I know we all wear "show black" for live concerts and events, but does anyone have a recommendation for what "brand" has worked best for you? Is it Nike Dri-Fit, Under Armor, etc etc.? Microfibre, cotton, blends?

I hope this turns out to be a helpful thread (no pun intended.)

I wear Merrell shoes, and black yoga pants from www.bepresent.com

They are very comfortable under my Klassen vest. Elastic waist with draw string, very light weight..

I usually wear a 100% cotton t shirt, but it does take a while to dry when I get out of the vest.

You can't go wrong with Under Armor..

Hope this helps !

I wear EMS wicking shirts and pants. Shoe from Merril, Garmont, and Vasque. But most important is Superfeet insoles. The Pants are too loud for a tender dramatic scene, but they are great out sid, or for any music/live events.

Hey there

I wear soccer/fotball t-shirts, because the body heat can with ease get out and away from the body.
I allways chose blach shirts, but still, soccer/futball shirts with tiny small holes in the material.

I use Columbia Shirts, with UV proteccion and Dry fast type of fabric, best for long summer days and very sweaty environments. Try them they are the best.

I second these. There are other manufacturers as well.

I try and wear the loudest and finest hawaiian shirt I can find that does not stink too much of smoke and beer from the night before.

It is the DOP?s right to have the strangest article of clothing on the set? I?m sure that?s in my contract somewhere? Canterbury do a great range of rugby shirts (not the All Blacks anymore) that are good and I like the soft collar, it stops any chafing on my neck.

Heft Bag now makes 55 gallon sizes in flat black. Works wonders, helps ya lose weight too.......

I usually wear black slacks and a long-sleeved black t shirt, frequently adorned with something small on the chest. A fave is my old "48 Hours" shirt.

can these be purchased at local brick and morter places? target? sears?

so one should use 100% cotton.. no blends or other herbs and spices correct?

Forget outer garments, let's talk about what really counts. On a live show: boxer briefs, taped show one can get away with boxers. In both cases 100% cotton, and always in some version of show black or your favorite super hero print. Never nylon, that nasty crotch sweat will chase away those young PAs faster than anything. And never ever wear a thong unless doing a "Brokeback" sequel.
Whitie tighties...forget about it.

Goodness me. :blink:

An added thought on a non-Brokeback issue. When I know I'm looking at a long haul show, but there is an intermission or break built in, I always bring a change of clothing. It's amazing how great you feel when you throw the dripping wet clothing into the bag and put on clean dry ones- even if they are dripping wet again in an hour.
