    Hello.

    New band. They wear loud stuff... Like, borderline Hawaiian print, disco era, polyester, paisley kind of stuff. I found some red pants. Need a shirt. Bonus points for links, pics, and/or anything under 20 bucks. Advice welcome. Hilarity encouraged.

    Thanks.

    Hit the local Goodwill or Savers store.

    Nothing wrong with having a look.

    Went to Goodwill, but I can't get past the idea of sweating in something that's already been sweated in.

    My first gig with them is just over a week away, so I'm thinking of just ordering the one I have pictured.

    Amazon ---> Psychedelic Dress Shirts

    I have been checking these out for a while for stage shirts. Millions of "cool" looking dress shirts but I am too chicken to buy one. They come from Asia so the sizing runs small.
    How I wish I had the guts to buy a few for gigs!

    The one I posted is from the Amazon's. With Prime, it can be here tomorrow. I'm gonna pull the trigger if no one steps forth with a better idea(s).

    I've seen some cool shirts with a music staff pattern - if you want I go in that direction.

    I'm afraid, as a subscriber to the 'Bassplayer Wears Black' school of thought, I can offer no help.

    However, I eagerly await photographic evidence of your purchases.

    Pics?
    I usually wear clever t-shirts or black... Something trendy or ironic. This is a bit out of my comfort zone, but heck yeah I'll post pics.

    The thrift stores here in Florida are full of gaudy, out of date fashions

    That shirt with red pants and shoes like this would look incredible. Do it.
