Icebreaker SuperFine 150 Tech Lite Shirt - Long-Sleeve - Men's
When the weather heats up, you may feel the urge to strip down and head out wearing nothing but your skivvies, but, according to your last performance review at work, wearing clothes is part of maintaining a professional working environment (or some crap like that). The Icebreaker SuperFine Tech Lite Long-Sleeve T-Shirt uses ultra-light, merino wool to wick moisture and let your skin breathe so you stay cool and don't feel sweat-soaked. Also, merino wool is naturally antimicrobial, which means less funkiness, and you could definitely use that.

Does this shirt fit similar to bodyfit or more like the inca?
Does this shirt fit similar to bodyfit or more like the inca? I have a couple superfine shirts that are 140 weight from a few years ago and I would like to replace them. I find that the bodyfit styles are too snug for casual wear and better for a baselayer, however the older 140 weight shirts I can wear around more casually.

I have a short sleeve version of this and it is significantly longer in the body and slightly less athletically cut than the BodyFit shirts I have and worlds more civilian friendly than the GT line.
It's much more like a standard t-shirt cut IMO, albeit still somewhat trim fitting.
Edit: I did wind up getting one of these and it seemed to be cut strangely different than the short sleeve. It looked fine from a modesty perspective, had plenty of length in the sleeves and enough in the torso when at rest but the armpits were very low and the ribcage just below the sleeves seemed very narrow. This caused a binding feeling across the back of the shoulders and made the waist lift up about 3-4" when lifting my elbows even w/ my shoulders. I'd try a XXL but I'm pretty sure the sleeves would be way too long and there'd be a lot of unwanted baggyness.
Kinda bummed as I can't seem to find a relaxed cut long sleeve ultra light merino crew neck that fits decently and isn't some weird color combo. The Stoic ones are just about perfect but their colorway designers seem to have gone color blind over the past few seasons IMO.

Love this shirt!

This is my favorite shirt for warm weather activities. The wool is amazing against your skin and the shirts looks great. They fit like a normal t-shirt, so you can wear it by itself in public (even if you aren't ripped). I have the short sleeve shirt as well and wear them pretty much every time I hit the outdoors when its over 50 degrees.
My only gripe is that they don't come in white! (I wear them as undershirts to work also, but can only wear with dark shirts due to the lack of lighter colors)
