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.

Ibex Outdoor Clothing Store
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!

Have another of these. Love it. Classic shirt.

Great looking shirt and it has snaps rather than buttons.
jacob s on Jan 25, 2016
I have other version. I liked the pattern.

I was looking for a heavier button up shirt to wear on cool or cold weather hiking trips. It has serviced very nicely in that role.
Josiah G on Jan 18, 2016
Love the weight . Seems like it will be really versatile.
Jim the walker on Jan 16, 2016
I have 4 of these. It's the absolute best fitting and feeling cool weather traditional button style (better even with these snaps) shirt. that I own. Paired with my Woolies 150 base, I can stay very comfortable when the thermometer drops and I'm not gearing up for a full backcountry adventure.

The cut is "almost" athletic and slim but still roomy. It's a "'mountain man with style" look. And, my wife says they look hot on me. I'll take it.

always wanted a wool flannel
Mark C on Jan 14, 2016
it's pretty and has snaps :)

I stepped up to the wool flannel to add to my Ibex organic cotton flannels collection. This one will last a lifetime as will my others.
@bostonoutdoor on Dec 11, 2015
I chose this because it makes me look like a badass mofo

Classic wool shirt starts out as a dress shirt and in time turns into the favorite hunting shirt ...
Maggie H on Dec 8, 2015
love ibex dress shirts. I only wish you carried wool plaids for women!
Hannah C on Dec 8, 2015
Great reviews!

Guest S on Dec 6, 2015
Wanted another color, wearing one right now. Wool is a little scratchy but know I will have this for many years, quality, worth the price.
John C on Dec 1, 2015
Have it already in another color
erik o on Nov 28, 2015
I saw this in a store and it feels so soft and warm, ordered in the green and blue for my boyfriend - the colors really popped and look cosy and classic but also a bit hip and stylish.
Guest S on Nov 23, 2015
The color and the wool quality from Ibex
Cago on Nov 16, 2015
My significant other only takes his off to wash it (and rarely) - so it's on my gift list for male relatives. Beautiful fabric, high-quality workmanship, great shirt all around.
Anne D on Nov 10, 2015
Son-in-law had it on his Christmas list
Carol W on Nov 10, 2015
A flannel shirt that fits. I am not overweight, why should my shirt be?
Seth M on Nov 3, 2015
Love ibex. Been looking for a classic flannel looking shirt but in merino. Bought each color.
eli k on Oct 23, 2015
I bought this for my husband for his birthday. We both love Ibex products and the idea of a plaid wool flannel shirt was intriguing.
Heather W on Oct 8, 2015
Having at least one high quality all wool flannel shirt in your closet is a must, where you buy it, is your choice. Ibex never fails to meet my expectations for quality and design, they are my go to choice when I am looking for the best in class products.
Mark L on Oct 7, 2015
looks comfortable and loved the description and reviews. Also looking for a shirt like this and i hope this is the one
Marc B on Oct 7, 2015

Comfortable fit even when buttoned-up to neck and sleeves cut to perfection
Norman H on Oct 4, 2015
My husband has to look nice for work and he also works outside in the cold every day. The shirt is a handsome, warm layer. He loves it and looks great in it too. I have gotten him one of these each fall for the last 3 years and it is his every day, go-to shirt.

Robert P on Feb 2, 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 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.

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
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.

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.

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!

High Quality Product
I ordered the Taos plaid shirt in blue. It's very well made. It fits well and looks stylish, and you can wear it with blue jeans or khakis. It's very versatile and doesn't require much maintenance as it doesn't wrinkle very easily and continues to smell fine without needing to be washed as frequently as cotton.

I had to buy a second!
Love this shirt! After I bought the first and wore it a while I had to get a second in blue. Fits great, versatile, and super functional. I'm a 6'4" athletic build at 200 pounds with monkey arms and the XL fits great. Usually an XL is baggy somewhere but in this shirt the sleeves, shoulders, and chest are all spot on.

My spouse loves the snaps
The quality is so much better than the others I have seen, but it is more expensive, but worth it. The fit, styling, fabric are great. Plus it's warm.
