Default Where to get some cool shirts for a gig?

I'm getting tired of just wearing the same old t-shirts to gigs. I like wearing graphic t's because:
1. I usually sweat to pieces anyway
2. They smell like smoke after a gig
3. They're the coolest (temperature wise) thing I can wear and I won't go sleeveless

Anyway, we have a kinda important gig coming up and I would like to get a new shirt. I guess I'm looking for something a bit nicer - maybe a button front black or dark grey with some graphics. Where can I get such a shirt? One that has graphics that are not like skulls but something moderate or maybe solid. Like maybe a Harley shirt or something, I don't know. We play 80's rock.
However, I don't want to spend $50 or sweat to death and didn't know where to go look.

You could always go for the WailinSmash look. He likes snappy duds.

Lots of people go with vintage work uniforms. I like to see the occasional shirt from a derelict company.

I get most my gig outfits at the local thrift. For ten bucks you can get a kicking outfit that is a conversation piece, to boot. :D

I wear moisture-wicking tees, and sometimes shorts. They don't show the salt sweat stains and the ones I have are really comfortable. I don't like the Under Armour shirts though...just not comfortable for me, and $.
