short sleeves (or cuffed long sleeves) to keep my hands free of clutter
shorts or pants that don't cover my feet
if it's outside and chilly then slipper socks. if it's inside then barefoot or sandals
i usually tie my dreads back as well, or put them under a hat.
Beat on.

Never longsleeves, usually no sleeves or short sleeves, never down to me elbows.

Jeans are ok for me although they get hot, so in summer I wear 3/4 shorts.

Shoes are converse all stars or flat-soled trainers.


And dont forget gloves! Meinl drumming gloves 8)

I always wear shorts and a t-shirt. Being comfortable is most important to me.

I always go for the t-shirt and jeans or short combo, which is what I wear normally most of the time.
I did do a gig in a shirt, tie and t-shirt once, but had to take the shirt off after about 3 songs, doubled as a towel though, which was nice.

To me it's all about comfort and practicality.
For practice its t-shirts, and loose jeans or sweats. and barefoot in warm weather.
Gigs, I go with the obligitory fat guy attire.. kool bowling shirt and jeans or beat up cargo pants. and sneakers.

I play in what ever I wear on that day. T-Shirts and Jeans. And I wear every color if it is black, most of the time.. ;)
I have my drumming shoes, just some old sport shoes used for table tennis and alike. I can't drum in the heavy footwear I have when running around.
When I know it's gonna be a long and hot gig I like to wear jam shorts.

I HAVE to be shirtless... Usually the shorter the shorts, the better.. Whats funny is when I wear clothes in anyother setting its always tshirts and confy pants or shorts.. But when I gig/practice, its all about less clothing because I SWEAT more than anyone I have seen sweat on stage haha.. 1 song under the lights and I am a faucet.. I have to have 1 water bottle for every 3 songs played...
It's not how good you are, just how good your equipment is :) Um... NOT

Depends what I feel like at the time. What I like to wear every time is a red head band and shades. And I usually come on with my jean jacket, but that doesn't stay on very long...
This could only be more awesome if it had tits and was on fire.
