However, I feel that this shirt is not being marketed as a base layer so much as a warm fashion t-shirt. At first I bought an XL (40-42") because I'm a little stocky and if I tense my torso I measure 41" across the chest. The XL turned out to be way too big for a base layer. It basically fits me like a regular nice black t-shirt, which is how I've been wearing it (since I was too lazy to send it back). But I was so impressed with the shirt that I have bought another, a medium (36-38") to fit my 39" slouch. This is perfect as a base layer and it's obviously also both a lot warmer and a lot better at wicking moisture. I might end up using this under a sports top when going for a run, so that will be very useful.
So I strongly recommend this brand, but I urge you to think carefully about the sizing and how it relates to your intended use. As far as I'm concerned, I now have the perfect clothing for travelling around northern Europe.
I ordered the medium as the large was not available so it fits pretty snug.
I am a sweaty bastard, so I am pleased to report that after 3 days wearing this T-shirt without deodorant (2 of which were walking around all day getting sweaty), it still smells pretty neutral.
The real test will be washing it and seeing if any funky smells linger, as that is where cotton shirts fail me.
Feels good when you are sweaty (wicks well).
Looks like a casual t-shirt.
Feels fresh when putting on the second and third days.
Maintains shape so far.
UPDATE: I bought two of these and the second one doesn't have the best fit around the neck. It sticks up at the back, which isn't a huge issue except it suggests variability in quality. Apart from this- very pleased.
Not cheap but exactly right to do the job I needed doing, as a generally very moist runner who had previously felt the chill if I stopped or slowed these keep me warm even when they are wicking hard! Merino underarmour were recommended on twitter #runchat by other runners to my specific problem of being a runner who got very very wet on runs and really needed something to help make running in the cold months easier, so that I wasnt heating up running then cooling very quickly, being wet, when recovering. these make winter running much more comfy!
I bought a long sleeved undershirt and boxers at the same time (having been given another short sleeve undershirt shirt for Christmas) and they have done superb service during the winter, its now (late March) getting a little too warm for the undershirts but the boxers are still perfect!
Does the job.
