Thanks vurbul. Finn, appreciate the pic quality comments as well as the fit :). It's an amazing lens, very enjoyable to shoot with. I'm really digging TWSH t's for work-wear, which is what they were designed for :).

The 08 looks great on you Snowy.  I'm surprised that the arm length looks good too.  The super short arm length on the size small was what put me off this shirt initially. 
Wanted to Buy:
IHSH-20 Red (Small).
IHSH-11 Blue (Small).

Thanks Qinhan, feels lush too (double brushed :-* ). It's almost identical length in the arms than as my reference IH shirts (62 and 33). I was mostly concerned about should/body measurements, but it's come through 'spot on'

Snowy, how do you compare this to the TWSH-09? Thickness almost similar?

Which one you think is more comfortable in a hot weather?

Hi vurbul, TWSH-08 would be more comfortable in hot weather, it's about 1/3 thinner than TWSH-09.

Thanks Snowy. I have the 08 and its doable in humid climate and was thinking of getting the 09 but maybe not.

First time buyer (and some time lurker) here.

I recently nabbed possibly the last size S in blue as my first Works inc. purchase, having missed out on the green IHSH-72. TWSH-08 was the best shirt I have ever owned (until I got my mitts on one of the significantly thicker TWSH-09).

The fabric on the outside feels rugged and slightly coarse (in a good way) but started to soften up after very little wear. The quality of construction and fabric is exactly what I had hoped for.

In case this is of interest to anyone who might be looking for a used size S (not mine unless I accidentally shrink it) - measurements taken the Iron Heart way:

Edit: the shoulders have stretched from 16.25" to 16.7" after a cold/delicate wash and wearing the shirt damp for a short while.

                       S (website)   My TWSH-08 size S
Shoulders:       16.5"            16.7"
Length:            27.6"            27.4"
Chest (P2P):     20.9"            21.0"
Waist:              19.7"           19.75"
Opening:          20.1"            19.3" (top of gusset across to other)
Arms:              23.6"            24.0"
Forearms:                            Close (my forearm circumference is 10.8", 27.4 cm)
Cuff:                                   8.75" (circumference of the opening when buttoned)
Collar size:                          16"

I prefer the shoulder, chest and arm measurements of the medium size, but the length, waist and opening measurements of the small. It is a slightly snug fit on my 38-39" chest worn with just a t-shirt underneath, but still comfortable. The collar size seems generous and I definitely would not want it any larger.

Is this a generously sized shirt or true to size? I have a Filson moleskin shirt that is a SMALL but it measures  at 21.5 pit2pit arms 24.5, length 29. And it's a lil fluffy on me. I am thinking I may be a MEDIUM in IH TWSH-08. I have broad shoulders tho and am weightlifting pretty heavy weights so I will be growing a bit but I don't want a loose fit with long arms.

ADVICE?

Grazie!

Second piece of advice: don't listen to me... Ever... But, going by measurements, knowing you're pumping iron, and that the shirt might shrink a little after a couple of washed, I'd do a size M...
