Very nice shirt, but buy big
on October 15, 2012
A very nice and well made shirt and a recommended buy but with one caveat. The material is a fairly heavy gauge Chamois and is toasty warm on our crisp fall days. Delightful! The cut is generous across the shoulders, down the arms, and around the chest, but, when new, is just adequate across the stomach. Therein lies the problem. My wife had urged me to get one size larger than my normal but I either forgot or thought I knew better. I should have listened. One wash and the shoulders, arms, and chest still fit fine but the stomach had shrunk too much for comfort (or appearance.) So, in short order, I ordered another, one size larger, the same tactic I urge anyone considering this shirt to entertain. Yes, buy it, but buy it big - you'll be happy you did.
UPDATE: The above holds true. Bought it a size too big to allow for shrinkage, and it worked out. The shirt shrank from deliberately too large to just right after one washing. I've had for over a month now and it's been washed 3 or 4 times and shrunk no further. So yeah, buy it one size large. Nice WARM shirt.
