Hot weather clothes

Aye up guys, I'll be off somewhere hot with work and think my usual check shirt and wool trousers/jeans may be a little much in 40 degree C!

What i'm after is branded t-shirts like the ones available in the States by Hornday, Glock, Sig etc. You know, so I can still be me in different kit.
Problem is I can't find owt in the UK and it's crazy expensive to post from America.

Any ideas?

Cooler than even cotton T-shirts are the thin blends in rip-stop, like the tropical fishing shirts by Columbia Bahama, LL Bean Tropic Wear, Woolrich, Simms, Orvis, Cabelas Signature, AFTCO, and the shirts with just one normal pocket and no back vent. These come in long sleeve, too, with 30 SPF and higher UV screen. A long sleeve like that in really bright sun is cooler than a short sleeve, and protects you, too. They weigh little, dry fast, and pretty wrinkle free. Some of the firearms companies sell these types of shirts with their logos on the pockets, etc, as they are very good for summer matches in the South and West - go to the S&W, SIG, Glock, and Beretta web stores.

Cheers Southern. I get a lot of the desert gear anyway it's more for when I'm in civvies or at the gym.
The lightweight shooting vests are a definite option mind, two birds with one stone there really. The only problem with getting them from individual stores is that I get hit by postage each time. I saw a few I liked but all from different companies.
I've ordered 5 now and a Hornady baseball cap, I figure I buy their bullets so I may aswell brag about it :)
Unfortunately Woodleigh don't do t-shirts and their caps aren't my thing otherwise I'd have one of them aswell.

Like me a walking logo me!
