Needs Better Comfort Features

I purchased 2 of these Bodyfit Tech Tops and found the merino wool to be comfortable and living up to its reputation for great absorption, but for the high price of this item, there is a serious lack of attention to some of the important details. The zipper and the reinforced fabric that it is attached to on the inside of the garment where it touches your skin is not sewn down and the stiff zipper placket is very rough and irritating to the skin as it moves about. Sewing it down would eliminate this movement and subsequent chafing of the skin. Also, the seams are not flat and for the high price of this garment, flat seams definitely should be a feature for comfort. There was a big disparity in sizing between the 2 tops that were labeled the same size L. One fit like a medium and the other fit like an extra large.
