    I choose Icebreaker t-shirts. Made of merino wool. I can usually pick them up cheap at sierra trading post in boise or cheyenne.

    There advertisement is that after days of wear , they still don't smell.

    not cheap though, from 35-65 per shirt

    I would vote for a tee with a pocket if this were a poll.

    Well now...that has me thinking Mr. Warrior....tanks for this design maybe the way to go.

    The thought has also progressed into hats with the text and an American Eagle perhaps on the back or side...nothing gawdy..just tasteful.

    I don't know about the IceBreaker tee...it sounds nice but very expensive for most.

    I am not sure the average Trucker would pay that kind of money for a tee like that or would they?

    The thought has come full circle with regular tees (wicking only works in the open air)...perhaps in a charcoal or Black..where it can take the dirt. Perhaps an American made tee and not one manufactured overseas...as I think most Truckers like the American made apparel over imports..

    And I guess because all Truckers come in all sizes..the tee has to lend itself to the bigger sizes with more room.

    Tanks would need to be sturdy enough..as well.

    Where do Truckers wash their clothes? At the stops or do they ship them home to be washed or do they just wait to get there? Fabrics put in industrial washers can get the *S* beaten out of them...especially if they have been screened.

    most of the time that style tank tee is called a wife beater.

    Hmmmmm...a pocket tee variety as well...thanks to all who told me that as well. The design then would have to go on the back which could be even funnier. (smiling)

    LOL...I don't know if our blank apparel suppliers have tanks listed like that...They may close our account if I ask for a Wife Beater Tank...LOL. Ack!

    Tanks normally come in Sleeveless Tees or just a Tank..which basically is the thinner straps and scooped armpit area.

    Some will not allow those type..as they want more of the armpit area concealed.
