Finely tuned 18.5 micron New Zealand Merino at 195g/m2. We designed this fabric from the need of a weight in-between our Woolies at 150g/m2 and our Zepher at 230g/m2. The weight of the fabric resembles that of a high quality t-shirt. It works well worn next to skin, as a baselayer or on its own.

How Do I Determine My Size?

We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:

Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

Indie garments are tops
This is my third Indie piece, my other 2 are the hooded Indie. This thing is great, you can tell the fabric quality is really high. It feels great against your skin, I have never had an itch while wearing them.

I got the Deep copper with gray stripe, which is like an orangey-brown and I really like the color. I also like the fact that the inside of the collar is blackish, it gives it some really

I like it!
I have three of these for when I want a lightweight wool layer. My sleeve length is 34-35 and the sleeve length is fine in size large. The size L fits me the same as most other size large's.

Nice wool base layer
I like to wear it under a shirt or sweater when layering. Its light and comfortable, only slightly scratchy (may want to wear a short sleave T under it). Colors are pleasant; haven't had it long enough to judge long term durability.

Could I just get past how it feels?!
I bought this wonderful item for a wonderful friend. A Christmas gift for him turned out to be a Christmas gift for me. He's so happy wearing it since it's lightweight yet warm. And -- bonus -- it's so soft to the touch each time I go to grab his arm. A win-win for a pair of cold cats in the midwest.

Typical Ibex garment
Typical Ibex garment: comfortable, well-made, stylish.

A note on sizing: I notice that many Ibex reviewers complain about sizing, particularly sleeves that are too long. Those same reviewers often give their own sizing info and size choices, and some of them obviously buy garments that are larger than recommended on the Ibex chart. In my experience, the Ibex chart is accurate if you want your top

Too Nice to Hide as Base Layer
I love this shirt. It is far too stylish and beautiful to hide as a base layer. I wear it to work or out to dinner on cool fall days. What a great product!!

This shirt is money
I have to wear a uniform for work, so I don't get to wear this piece as much as I would like to. I basically am excited at every chance to put it on, it is so comfortable. The contrast on the inside of the collar is a really good touch.

I want to see Ibex make a "Rugby" style shirt, like this, but with buttons instead of the 1/4 zip, how awesome would that be? Kinda rugged, kinda preppy, but real

Favorite Top
I have owned several short and long sleeve Ibex tops in the last two years. So far, this is my favorite. The zipper comes in handy for heat regulation with winter activities. I really like the cut and feel of the top. It is slightly form fitting/athletic cut, but by no means tight with plenty of room for arm movement.

I received this top as a gift, and at first was a little skeptical of the ar

Wear it or another top almost everyday in fall and winter.
