Thank you for your input, however it would be useful if you would provide argumentation why the use of hemd would be wrong.

Van Dale suggests that hemd can also mean overhemd: http://www.vandale.nl/opzoeken?pattern=hemdlang=nn#.VWSiN9KeDGc

I was thinking along the line: a button down shirt = overhemd. A shirt would be along the lines of a t-shirt (or garment without buttons). I guess both could be right: hemd = overhemd or t-shirt if VanDale says so.
