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

Still need help determining your size? Call 800.773.9647 or email us at info@ibex.com for specific garment measurements.

I want to try this shirt and its on sale.
Gwyndaf J on Aug 25, 2016
This will be my third Taos Plaid shirt. I love the newest color, and the past two I've bought are my favorite shirts to wear throughout fall, winter and spring. I usually wear a T-shirt underneath because they can be a bit itchy, especially in warmer weather or if I work up a sweat. But I love the substantial weight, comfortable to about 40 degrees. Just a great feeling shirt.

Ibex wool, plaid, pearly-snaps..... how can you go wrong?
Sugarloafer on May 22, 2016
Tired of cotton flannel, so wanted to try a wool version.
Wes K on May 22, 2016
I bought a previous version of this shirt (liked the colors better on previous version). Previous one was so comfortable, warm, and well fitting - and durable feeling. So, I had to have another.

I love snap-front shirts. I've been looking for a wool, western-style snap-front for a long time.

It's a wool plaid shirt in a good color.
Kevin C on Feb 21, 2016
have a blue plaid one, favorite shirt, although I have a full zip bike sweater/jersey that is also pretty awesome kind of sad you don't carry that anymore.
Robert W on Feb 17, 2016
Great look, very comfortable (I have one in another color). Itchy at first, but largely gone after first wash.
Sean O on Feb 16, 2016
Rugged and stylish
Davin B on Feb 16, 2016
I like snaps versus buttons!
John M on Feb 16, 2016
I like the look and feel of this shirt, Some say it's itchy and I could see how that could be, but don't find that for me.
I wear a small in everything else from Ibex, but small is too small in this shirt. Am ordering a medium now to check fit. Really wish there were free returns from Ibex. Surprised there are not, seems most companies of this caliber do.
Great clothing though!
Jeff R on Feb 10, 2016
Very high quality workmanship
nancy d on Feb 10, 2016

Marine K on Aug 12, 2016
Cool plaid shirt and it's wool! No need to say anymore.
Jeffrey S on Jul 22, 2016
Is this true to size? My husband is L but sometimes needs XL because sleeves are too short - does this come in tall sizes?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear a small and it's the longest-sleeved small shirt I have. Fits a little bigger and longer sleeved than I thought. Definitely not "vanity sized".
How do you wash this shirt?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wash my shirt either by hand or in the washer on a gentle cycle in COLD WATER. Use a mild detergent -- no woollite as it takes the lanolin out of the wool. After washing, put the shirt on a hanger and let it air dry. DO NOT PUT THE SHIRT in the DRYER!!
How is this item cleaned ?
A shopper on May 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Machine wash cold with like colors
Gentle cycle. Do not bleach. Lay flat to dry. Cool iron if needed. May be dry cleaned. (From tag)
How much wool is in the shirt?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Our Taos Plaid shirt is 75% Wool, and 25% Nylon.

Great looking shirt but somewhat itchy
This is the only item from Ibex (or any merino company) that I've found to be itchy. It fits well and looks great but it just not that comfortable to wear.
December 10, 2013
Warm, Sturdy flannel
I love this flannel. I am 5 foot 10, 180 lbs, and usually wear a size medium. I usually buy larges in wool because of shrinkage, and threw this in the dryer for about 10 minutes after washing to shrink it just a tiny bit. The fit is now great. I can't recommend this for everyone, but since I'm right in between sizes it worked for me.

This flannel has had snot on the sleeves, bacon grease splattered on the front, and dirt from my bike tire on the backside, and still looks awesome. This is 1 of 2 flannels of mine that I know I will have forever.

There are other reviews out there of this being scratchy. Yes, it is, but if you read the description of the microns they use in their wool, this layer is not meant to be next to skin.

What it would take for ibex to have received 5 stars from me on this product is the addition of a much finer gauge merino on the inside of the collar, to alleviate some of the itchiness.

Thanks ibex for a flannel that I can see myself wearing on my bike and on the skintrack!

Great Fit but Itchy
I have loved every piece of wool from Ibex so far but this is the only shirt I have owned that is itchy.
September 18, 2012
Worth every penny
I'm not one to typically spend cash like this on a shirt. I read some of the reviews and considered shying away from this shirt due to the "itch factor". I decided to ignore the fact that it might be itchy and drop the cake for this shirt.
I couldn't be more pleased with this shirt. It's stylish, wicked warm, and highly functional. Truth be told there is a very mild "itch factor" with this garment. The work around for me was a long sleeve 150 wool baselayer. Problem solved, along with some added warmth. This shirt is the bomb diggity on cold days.
I'm saving my pennies for another!

Best shirt fit yet from Ibex!
This is one handsome shirt, fits so well and flatters even my thick middled shape. It's ever so slightly itchy, but hey, that's what woolies base layers are for!

None Better!!!
This is the shirt I have been looking for as far back as I can remember. The fabric weight is ideal as a second layer; the snap-buttons on the placket translate into a quick on or off. Patch pockets with snaps keep things from falling out when bending over. And the styling has a refined touch that is elegantly understated. No, I don't work for Ibex.... But I will own this in every color after

Great shirt, will be buying a second one
I purchased this a size up from my usual shirt to use as an outer layer while camping/hiking. It definitely fits large, but works perfectly over my base while I'm outside in the Fall and Winter. Great construction and warmth, I'm super impressed with the material. This has been put through the wringer and still looks great. Absolutely a quality product, I'll be purchasing one in my usual size to wear as a casual shirt around town.

Started a Collection
My fiance has this in three different colors now. Last Christmas he got one, this Christmas he had to have two. It's a bit itchy to start compared to 100% wool from Ibex, but a great mid-layer. Fits great with broad shoulders.

Great Shirt, I've got 2
I bought one of these Taos Plaid shirts last year and loved it. The weight of the wool, snap buttons and sharp colors combine to make this shirt stand out. I bought a second one this fall when they were released again. People complement me on it all the time. Good work Ibex!
