I absolutely LOVED this shirt from the moment I took it out of its bag. Everything about it is fantastic. It's VERY warm, kept my torso perfectly toasty yesterday despite it being just below 50 and very windy - my hands were almost numb, but my chest, abdomen, and arms were just fine! It's also very plush, very soft, and VERY cool.
It can be worn on its own, untucked, for a rough-and-tumble, pseudo-retro vibe. It can also be layered excellently, so long as the other items you layer with are similarly thick and/or heavy. It will add a special touch with its bold, braided cords which readily and constantly change shade based on where the light hits. In fact, this shirt can be used for anything -sleeping, dates, rock concerts, outdoor work- except slick suiting looks. Great shirt, one of my favorite wardrobe items period. I bought it in the charcoal color and am glad I did, as the textures and shades stand out on their own; adding color to the shirt would have diminished its overall effect.

This shirt was so much better than I expected, and I already have very high expectations with the True Grit brand. This shirt is weighty but the fabric is so soft and supple that you don't want to take it off. I ordered this shirt in ALL of the colors available.
