as for the shirt goes i wear a long sleeve shirt a lot and if its cold ill throw a t-shirt or something under it. but a jersey does help a lot in those hot days because of the venting mesh they have built in.

Also, I don't slide much at all, but I'd probably reccomend good kneepads, one of my friends is on his third set from diving on rocks.

First off you want to get the right protection such as a good mask, slider shorts, knee pads, and elbow pads. Then you may want to invest in paintball pants and i nice loose jersey. All you really need is the protection though, but then again paintball dont hurt me taht much.

Paintball pants are a necessity, Depending where you play some soccer cleats are great too.
Really though, anything you are comfortable in is fine.

If buying actual paintball clothes is not an option. For pants you want some thing durable like a work pant, jeans are fine, but they are tough to run in because the material is very heavy and does not breathe well. Any shirt will do, but I would seriously look into buying a padded paintball shirt rather than layering up, making your body over heat is never a good idea.

as for pants, For my first few scenerio games i wore kahkis (sp?) a few games later I bought some old paintball pants for cheap, and they are great. For a casual "once in a while" player a puffy jacket, longsleeve t-shirt, and some durable pants are fine. (in my own experience.)
If anything, bring a spare shirt or two for the day. One (short sleeved T) to change into if it's too hot (i did this....and it saved me from heat stroke.) and one (sweatshirt) to put on if it's to cold.
Hope this helps.
