The merino was very tight, didnt fit well at all. Had zero stretch. Maybe my hopes were too high but for the price.... I expected a lot
I bought these thinking they might be good for camping since wool is anti-bacterial and therefore doesn't stink if you wear it a couple days in a row. However, the underwear is very tight and doesn't really stretch. So while the material itself feels nice, it's uncomfortable to wear and because it's too small bending over results in plumber's crack. I've always been very happy with the products I've bought from Tani, but this one's a no go for me. I ordered a small (same size I always buy here).
Warm merino wool, super soft silk, who could ask for anything more! I've found every TANI product I've purchased has set a new standard for quality, excellence, and value.
I sized up from my usual XL and the XXL fits. Tani's XL fits great for their shorts and boxer briefs, by I size up for their shirts. I love the material, but I like their silk cut shirt a little more because it fits me a little looser like a normal tshirt. This one is a little tight, but works great as an undershirt. I hope to lose some 5-20 lbs and will wear it on it's own if I do. Material is great quality and shirt is constructed well. Smells fresh after use, likely because of the merino. Overall I'm very happy, but I'd buy the silk cut version first. Tani makes excellent product ls that I love wearing.
I will have to buy all the fiber blend combinations before I can comment fairly.
I've been searching for a quality merino wool shirt that wasn't itchy. I've tried icebreaker brand and was impressed with the 100% wool shirts. However, Tani added silk making the shirt softer, less itchy and much more luxurious. This is my go to winter undershirt/tshirt. Yes, I wear it as a t-shirt most days and it does keep me warm.
Really nice shirt. Great quality & very comfortable. Slimmer fit. May need to size up.
