Lululemon makes... Yes, I said Lululemon. They make some quality clothing, love their silverescent shirts for working out, as well as for an undershirt at work.

^ Ditto.

Apparently, their base layers (shirts, socks, underwear, hats, etc.) are all extremely comfortable. Never really checked out their site and/or prices but I may now.

After trying Under Armor and being thoroughly disappointed, I'm still looking for comfortable undergarments...

Wife and I tried to find some Lulu sweats and shirts for me during a boxing day sale and never found anything decent with decent prices. Sweats were still about $80.00 and none of the shirts remotely appealed to me for work or workout wear. I've stuck with the Underarmour "Tactical" line ($5 cheaper than the same regular shirts with muted logos) and been happy.

I heard you looked good in yoga pants.
When things get bad, I take comfort in knowing they could always be worse.

You kept asking for more snapchat photos, so I must be doing something right.

Anyone know of any good mesh (maybe part nylon or polyester?) or other undershirts that work well under uniform shirts? Starting to get hot lately. :D

There is a new shirt out that resembles a 1980's mesh tank top. I haven't heard of anyone wearing it and giving a review, but it's interesting. See 221btactical.com .

Our new IceSkin t-shirt is not out yet, sadly. We have a small limited-production run going right now but most are already sold, for July delivery. The full production will be in a few months, which will sadly miss our summer season.

I'm wearing one of the Firstar shirts that Mark has mentioned here before. I ordered a couple to see what they are like compared to the ol' under armor ones (that stink to hi heaven no matter what you do after a few months... yes I washed them!! hahaha). Others on here have said they like them and so far so good. I'm just waiting to get a couple more wears outta them in the hot weather to see for myself if they end up stinking like the under armor (everyone has told me they don't) and they seem to be odor free so far. I'll post again once I get another month or so outta them.
I will suggest ordering one size bigger then the under armor if you go with the tight fit ones. Mine is a little tight compared to the same size under armor ones I have.

I wear Under Armour in the summer and Arc'Teryx in the winter. It pulls moisture away from your skin, although it gets absorbed by the uniform shirt. Kevlar doesn't breathe.

False. Pro TIP: Shoot holes through your Kevlar vest to add breathing holes, it helps make those warm days easier to bear.
