Loving my merino wool!

I am 6'0 and 185 pounds with an athletic build and this shirt fits me wonderfully, it's not too tight and not too baggy, just right. The deep/deep color is beautiful, the thumb holes are also a nice touch. I used this as a base layer last weekend on an overnight backpacking trip and I was immediately sold on merino wool. The comfort is a major plus, and the shirt wicks away moisture as advertised. On a 70 degree day in Colorado this long sleeve shirt was awesome. After taking off my 20 pound pack my shirt was a little moist, but within an hour or 2 my back was completely dry. I have already ordered more merino wool only a week later, and view it as the best possible base layer around.

I am similar size/ weight as you - what size did you get that fit so well?
