The button-down shirt is one of two shirts available in core RimWorld. Compared to its alternative, the T-shirt, it offers superior coverage and cold insulation at the cost of slightly increased labour and material requirements.

Acquisition

As a complicated garment, Button-down shirts can only be made at tailor benches, which requires Complex Clothing to be researched in order to be constructed. A button-down shirt requires 45 of any textile, and 2,700 ticks (45 secs) of work.

Button-down shirts can also be purchased from traders or stripped from Outlanders, Pirates and Empire pawns.

Analysis

Button-down shirts are a direct upgrade to t-shirts with only a minor increase in cost. Comparing the two options:

  • T-shirts have the same armor values, but don't cover the arms or neck
  • T-shirts offer slightly worse insulation from cold (22% vs. 26%)
  • T-shirts require fewer textiles to craft (40 vs. 45) and take less work (27 vs. 45)

Although these benefits may seem small, they can go far when combined with the right materials and other pieces of apparel. The cost increase to make a button-down shirt compared to a t-shirt is negligible, so there's very little reason not to choose button-down shirts for your colonists.

Button-down shirts, when pairs with pants also compete with tribalwear:

  • Tribalwear has identical armor values, but less coverage (tribalwear doesn't cover the arms and neck)
  • Tribalwear has better insulation from cold (55% vs. 46%)
  • Tribalwear has much better insulation from heat (55% vs. 18%)
  • Tribalwear has lower materials and work cost (60 textiles and 30 work vs. requires 85 textiles and 72 work)

A bit of extra neck and arm protection is usually seen as valuable enough to merit the lower insulation and higher crafting cost of pants and a button-down. But colonists in ultra-hot biomes may prefer the better insulation, especially when first starting out.
