The Solace is a new shirt for icebreaker, and it seems like they were going for something a bit more casual and for spring, winter, and fall use here. The fabric feels a bit heavier than the Sphere or Techlite, which I love to wear for runs and hikes year round. I love the feel of the tencel blended with the merino as it makes Solace feel so soft and doesn't have the initial prewash itch that some merino products have. Although not my first choice for wearing in the heat, this shirt will be a great casual and under baselayer shirt in the cooler months. THe fit seems a bit larger than what I am used to with icebreaker, typically I wear a medium but could definately have sized down to a small in this one!

Tencel in my Merino, hold the phone! Now I want Tencel in ALL my gear! Buttery soft and more durable than your average merino, this will hold up when you rally a quick gym session and then go straight back to work, or when your nerves kick in and you start sweating on that blind date - The no stink factor of Merino fires up and you are protected. The fit is more relaxed and modern than the Sphere or true baselayers. This fits more like a nice tshirt. You could easily wear it under a blazer and get your LA look on, or you could wear it to the office for a nice casual sharp look, or to the desert on your spring vitamin D hunt. I got a large, and actually dried it and the fit is insane, long and lean. I love it. I wouldn't recommend that technique unless you are sure about the fit you want. Normally wear a medium, but wanted a slouchier look.
