It features casual styling and stealthily techy fabrics that transition seamlessly from morning commutes to office-worthy attire all without missing a step.

Technical shirt, casual looks
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I bought this shirt because I was looking for something to wear on my upcoming Outerbike trip, during which I will be riding mountain bikes, camping, and hanging out with friends - all in the same shirt.
This shirt seems to fit that bill nicely. Its material allows for adequate stretching and breathability for the more strenuous activities (I did some weird calisthenics in the office as a test), and seems like a garment that will hold up well to a MTB crash or even a drunken tumble during a night of carousing.
I'm really impressed with the construction of this shirt: all of the seams line up really nicely, the stitching is clean, even the backside of the hems are really tidy. Additionally, the discreet pocket on the lower back is perfect for holding your ID and credit card. Not that I'd put my phone back there, but it is indeed big enough to fit an iPhone 6, as well.
As for the fit, if you're really skinny in the torso and betwen sizes, go down a size. I'm 6'3", weigh 205, and have a 44 inch chest and the XL works for me. It's roomy enough to ride in, but slim enough to look cool. Balance achieved.
