    unless you want the rear pockets that cycling jerseys have (I usually wear a camelbak, so don't use the rear pockets)- pretty much any wicking exercise shirt works just fine. cycling jerseys also tend to run on the small/tight side unless they're the moto/dh/freeride type, then they're more baggy.
    I hit the clearance racks at the big box stores, marshalls, tjmaxx, etc. I often find great riding shirts for under $5. I'm partial to coolmax, but there's lots of options.
    Ah, just noticed you're in the cool southern climes of MS I'm over in cajun country. hit the clearance racks for budget excersize shirts! I'm not above cutting 'v' notches or cutting off the necks of my expensive finds to make a bit cooler or more comfy.

    i live in southern mississippi. It's hot as hell and humid as a fish tank. I guess i'll run by some of our local TJ Maxx/Hudsons type stores.

    the only actual MTB gear i wear are the lycra shorts. i put my under armour shorts over those. i also wear the under armour shirts. im abit of an under armour whore but the stuff works better than anything else ive tried IMO.

    added: i live in south louisiana so i need all the extra cooling i can get esp. at 275lbs.

    I found some running shirts on sale at a sports shop: not tight, feel dry.

    I really like the techwick t-shirts from EMS. They're simple, pretty cheap and have a 'roomy' cut. I'm also a XL-XXL in cotton t-shirts, and the XLs from EMS are plenty big.

    I get my shirts from Academy and I got a pair of baggys from REI.. I tried some of the shirts from walmart and didnt like the fell. I got some of the Nike shirts at Academy and they felt tons better and like $5 more.
