Any all white shirt or t-shirt will do.
The more dedicated bateria member would have an all white, collared, short
or long sleeved dress-shirt clean and ready at all times! Many of
us use the quite chic and smart looking Guayabera
Shirts which were used for our costume in 2000. (Note: The link
is a quick way to view and purchase on-line, but the shirts are widely
available in the local Mexican Western Wear shops in the SF Bay Area.
I buy mine at the San Jose Flea Market for under 20 bucks.)
Any all white pants will do. The more dedicated
bateria member would not use anything that looked too much like sweat pants.
However bright white sweat pants are better than off-white or beige pants
of a more formal nature. Kmart and Target usually have painter's
pants, which are usually made from white heavy duty denim. I recently
found some good comfortable white pants at SmartScrubs
(there is a real store in the Great Mall of Milpitis). Although some
of the "scrubs" look a bit like sweat pants, I think "Genes" line looks
pretty sharp, and features a Surdo Mallot loop!
Any all white shoes will do. The more dedicated
bateria member would have a shiny set of white patent leather shoes, however,
I believe that approach is excessive. I have always used cheap white
loafers. Sometimes I use a white paint to cover a small blue stripe
often found on cheap white loafers. Kmart has these shoes at this
time for under ten bucks. There is a product called "Shoe White"
which restores dirty shoes to a bright white luster.
