Summary

Overview & Obtaining

The button-down shirt is one of two available shirts, and superior to the T-shirt - at the slightly increased labour and material requirements. Button-down shirts can be purchased from traders, crafted, or stripped from Outlanders and Pirates.

Crafting

As a complicated garment, Button-down shirts can only be made at tailoring benches, which requires complex clothing to be researched in order to be constructed. A button-down shirt requires 45 of any textile, and 45 units of work

Conclusion & Comparison

As mentioned, button-down shirts are a direct upgrade to t-shirts: they insulate better from cold, and they protect the torso, neck, shoulders, and arms (t-shirts only protect the torso and shoulders). 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.

Insulation Information

Button-down shirts offer a small amount of insulation from heat (10%) and a bit more insulation from cold (26%). The exact insulation in-game depends on the textile used and the quality of the crafted item. Assuming normal quality, a button-down shirt offers:
