T-shirts don't have buttons. Button-up shirts fall into other categories.

I call the second one a short-sleeved shirt.

"T-shirt" has expanded to mean almost any lightweight knit (usually cotton or cotton/poly blend) pullover shirt - you have long-sleeved Ts, V-neck Ts, scoop-neck Ts, pocket Ts, etc.

A "t-shirt" is not going to be woven or a heavy knit, like wool.

I that blue thing is a short-sleeve button-down - in my book, a sartorial oxymoron.
