So my Henleys and sweatshirts showed up today, amazingly 4 days after ordering them.

The Henley is the same 14oz as the tee shirt I got in natural and the construction details and different stitches for the wrists, hem, and button collar are amazing.  I never thought I'd be so into how a garment is put together, but this forum gave proven otherwise  :D

I got both a 10 and 15 ounce sweatshirt as well, the lighter of the two in something of an oatmeal/natural merle and the heavier in a dark grey.  I love my UHFs but wanted to pad out my basics a bit.  The 10z sweat will be fantastic for layering under my N1 or stormrider, and has a nice soft hand feel.  The 15oz reminds me of the XHS denim vs the 21iz.  While the 21oz is thicker the density of the XHS and the rigidity of the fabric is what makes it so interesting.  The 15oz sweat fabric is a much tighter, denser weave, and while the sweatshirt doesn't have the bulk you might expect the fabric feels bulletproof.

All in all the quality is top notch and I'm SUPER stoked on the pieces.  Ink blue and barn red Henley, two neutral sweats, more pics if anyone wants to see them outside of production shots  ;)

@neph93 since I figure there's more snow in the last picture of yours I saw than Maryland has seen in nearly a decade combined, I'll consider it the "in case I visit Reuben"-latch  :D

The UHF was put on solely for the photo since it was sitting next to me on the arm of the couch, then PROMPTLY taken off  ;) :'(

@mclaincausey I only mention it because while I'll probably never actually do it up, if I knew I couldn't it would drive me nuts  :D

The jacket is substantial  :D
Few minutes of attempting to photograph myself inside and I could already feel myself wanting to sweat

Ended up with a medium as it's measurements skewed slight larger than the other two colors, especially the black (Large in black was actually smaller than the medium I got). Much thanks to the IHUK crew and @JoshC for helping me get the sizing I wanted.

I can comfortably fit a UHF under it so that's kinda the sweet spot for me.  Length is a tick on the shorter side than something like my 101SR which is what I was hoping for.  I can get the throat buttoned pretty easily considering the rigidity of the fabric, though inside that kind of insulation is oppressive.  The zipper is almost comically robust.  It's an incredible bit of kit, and while I originally had hoped to nab the khaki I think this shade of olive is perfectly understated.  It all worked out  ;D

Some photos by me in a messy "in the middle of laundry when it showed up" room, another by my wife who walked in from work on my photo shoot  8)

I wear mine all the time since the fall dropped in, and maybe I e not been rough and tumble with it enough but have found it to be fading fairly slow.  I just need some outdoor play with my nieces and nephew to change that, I suppose

@Widening Gyre no snow yet here in Maryland (though the temps sure have dropped).  Did you size up for crazy layering potential or go fairly fit?

I was on the fence about buying one this year and then got a small surprise "Christmas bonus" this year so I figured that was a sign  :D
