I prefer wool garments over Polarfleece for their breathability. This 'Realfleece 260' will not replace a thick fleece but looks much better and is more versatile when you use it with other layers. When the weather is not so cold you will be able to wear this much more often than polarfleece.
The shape, construction and detailing are up to Icebreaker's high standards. It looks good for casual wear.
The shape looks like it's designed for Icebreaker models in that it has a broad chest compared to a narrowish waist. But the material has some stretch so you don't have to conform exactly to the ideal male form.
My suit chest size is 38/39 so I selected a Medium size Icebreaker even though I'm sometimes a 'Large' in other brands. Medium fits me nicely. If you are at the upper limit of their suggested measurement range for Medium, or if you expect to wear something thicker than a shirt underneath, you may want to consider going up a size.
