When I do yardwork in the Florida sun with a shirt on, I notice a difference when I wear a lighter-colored shirt compared to a darker-colored one. But that's just me.
Of course, my clothes aren't made to wick the water away and breathe and all that like NFL uniforms are, but still, I notice a difference.
