The Pearl Izumi wool base layer is very body forming and accurate to size, however the material is rather "thin" and after one use and light washing (gentle cycle, fluff dry) the right arm stitching has already given way/had a run. Not very impressed given the price. I had higher expectations from Pearl Izumi.

I wanted to like this base layer. A wool / mesh combo in specific areas makes sense.
The fit is funky. The arms are too long, and chest too tight. And the wool is super thin and scratchy.
