Our band has a sponsor that made our shirts, so we wear that. Our choice for pants.

Shoes are the important factor here. I usually play in socks, but I also have a pair of water shoes in my case. The thin soles let me feel the pedals and work with them. Unlike hard sole shoes.

It doesn't really matter what to wear while playing drums. I just go for a t-shirt and jeans.

Athletic stuff for comfort. The occasional hockey jersey because the only thing cooler than drumming (excluding marital acts - kiddies me be on!) is HOCKEY!
