A white shirt is a real bad idea.  I tried several different shirts and 
found that a grey "Coolmax" t-shirt was the best up to Kenedy Meadows(it 
keeps you cooler and dries quickly)

I went through all of California without ever using DEET because of its 
potential health effects.  Instead, I used VERY light nylon pants and an 
ex officio long sleeve shirt.  These combined with a large bandana under 
the hat provided great protection even when sitting and eating.
