Classic Styling That Will Last a Decade
5 5

Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

This shirt is amazing. Like most of the Taylor Stitch I own (I'm OBSESSED with this brand right now) this shirt fits true to size. Great as a stand alone or layered over a heavy bag T. The material is a little rough right out of the package and gets continuously softer.
With Taylor Stitch, it's all in the details. Sure, the fabric here is amazing. But the fit is killer. Everything about it makes it FEEL classy. Even the cuffs on this shirt. I've already got my eye on this shirt in another color.
Photo attached from TS's site because seeing it on model paints a way better picture of the way this shirt sits on body.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I think I've got the heavy bag tee in 3 or 4 colors at this point. Heavy knit cotton that feels burly but is actually comfortable. And gets more comfortable every time I wash and wear it. It's a slim fit so true to size is perfect as a layering piece or a great stand alone in the summer. This isn't your classic cotton tee. It's so much better. I wear a size Large (42) and wear a 42 regularly so size is right on. For a less "tailored" fit I could go XL. Literally can not recommend this shirt enough. It's worth it's price as a staple in your closet. You'll have it for years and years.

This jacket is insane. I've yet to put it on without getting compliments on it. The fit is definitely trim. I'm typically a size 42 jacket and the Large is definitely as small as I could go. I think someone who wore a 44 would be hard pressed to make this jacket work, despite the size chart. At 6'2" I feel like the jacket hits at the perfect length.
I would expect I could wear this jacket with a long sleeve shirt underneath down to almost 0 deg (f) weather and still be comfortable and it's nice to have the peace of mind of knowing it's DWR treated.

Just a solid pair of ski socks. Nothing over the top, just warm and comfortable. Make sure to check the size chart to make sure you get the right size as the sizing seems slightly different than some of the other ski socks I've bought in the past.
I like that the extra cushion is mapped in a way that helps keep me comfortable when I've got a pair of boots on, can still be worn just to stay warm when I don't have my boots on, and seems to have thoughtfully been designed to dump heat where it can so I don't sweat, and still keep me warm in all the right places.
Another winner from Icebreaker.

This jacket is plenty warm for active pursuits. Can be used as either a midlayer or an outer layer all on its own. My favorite part of this jacket is the stretch side panels that allow for easy movement and stop the jacket from ever feeling restricting. While the jacket is plenty warm, it never feels too.heavy either.
Fit seems true to size according to the size chart. I wear a size 42 jacket typically and while the XL gives me plenty of room to layer underneath, the L is the better fit for me as a standalone insulator or a second layer when layering.
All in all, big fan of this piece. No nonsense like you'd expect from icebreaker. It just works. Does it's jump comfortably enough that you don't have to think about it while you're wearing it.

Seems like most boots require a couple weeks or more before I feel like they're comfortable enough to afford 5 stars. Not the case with these at all. The Super 550 is comfortable right out of the box. I own a ridiculous number of shoes, and the Super 550 very well might be the best of the bunch. I ordered a full size down. I'm normally an 11 in most shoes, 10.5 in most boots, 10 in red wings. I ordered a US 10, UK 9 and the fit is perfect.
