Reviewed by Show Me from Missouri on Saturday, March 7, 2015Ordered this for a family member who doesn't like to be too hot and also appreciates nice fabric against his skin. He is 6' and 175# and the L fit him well. Since our family tries to avoid dry cleaning chemicals, he launders this in cold water on delicate cycle, puts in dryer on very low heat for a few minutes to help with wrinkles, and then hangs to dry. Any shrinkage, if any, has been minimal. He liked this so much that I ordered another in the other pattern when it went on another STP deal price. Would never pay the full retail price, but it IS worth the STP deal pricing. Would have rated a 5 if the sizing had been a little more accurate and If the garment did not carry a 'dry clean only' care label.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mich Man from Mich on Wednesday, February 18, 2015nice as an under layer, feels good, looks good, good discount.
usually a M will fit me... sometimes a L. Ordered a large in this one, fits well.
Reviewed by Customer Care from Unknown on Thursday, April 4, 2013The shirts are pricey, the fabric is nice. Size XL generally fits me or is too large; in this shirt is was much too small all around.
Reviewed by Chuck the Beancounter from North Texas on Thursday, January 24, 2013I ordered one of these, wore it once, and immediately ordered two more. I primarily wear mine for sleeping (although I'm wearing one now, at work). There are just about the best combination of light weight and warmth for our cool North Texas winters that I've seen. They are like wearing air -- wonderfully comfortable!
One cautionary note: These are labeled "Dry Clean Only." Now a non-washable t-shirt is about as useful to me as a rubber-bladed axe, so I ordered mine one size larger than my normal size, to allow for shrinkage. That turned out to be a pretty good guess. I cold-water wash them; they shrank about one size and (so far) seem to be color fast.
I'd buy several more if I could afford them!

“Is this T-shirt TRULY dry clean only? Why? Shrinkage, or color bleeding, or something else? Has anyone tried hand washing in cold water with something like Woolite? How did that work out? I intend to use mine mostly as a pajama top, but not if I can't wash it in some way without major shrinkage; color-fastness is not an issue for me.”
The manufacturer's care tag recommend to dry-clean.
