I'm curious now. What does the emergency shirt of the Great Chaos look like? A tactical polo? A travel shirt with many pockets? A henley? Or perhap a dress shirt?

Long sleeves, at least two pockets which can be fastened, synthetic fabric, fairly loose fitting (to allow layers underneath), probably light blue in color (not critical)

Never really needed a spare shirt.

Most of onsite work (software developer) was commuting to London, so just bought a new clothing if had to stay longer than expected.

Did like the idea of vacuum packing a set of the essentials (socks, boxers & tshirt) and leaving it in a bag just in case.

Currently itís a dress shirt purchased from my employerís corporate logo store. I have three basic work uniforms depending on the occasion (jeans and a collared shirt; slacks and a collared shirt; slacks, sportcoat, and dress shirt being most common). The corporate logo dress shirt will serve for any of these purposes. It wouldnít look great with a tie, but I think the last time I wore a tie at work was in early noughties.

For the past year my work uniform has been to stash a polo in my home office for any video calls where a t-shirt is inappropriate, but Iíll be heading out to see customers in person again soon enough.

Having a bug out LOCATION is a must, imo!

Whether a person has another piece of property, or a friendís/relativeís place with a pre-arranged agreement to use it as a BOL, it needs to be organized well in advance of ever needing it!
