Love mine. Looks like a long sleeve, feels like a sweater. Would look good in grey..

G, are these different material to the other 'super heavy' long sleeve T's? Also I note that you size up to XL in these, is that for the chest or the length?

If you mean the IHTB-01 & 05, it's the same fabric....

Typo - meant to be "L" - fixed...

Thanks G, now I need to decide whether I prefer this solid variant to either of the striped ones, although as I already have the IHTB-06, I should probably just pick between this and the -05

Surprise restock.......

We had a box of stuff waiting in Kojima to ship to a retailer.  He decided he could not afford to pay for the stuff.  His customers loss is your gain.... ;D

Yet another winner. Went with the XL (down from usual XXL) since the shoulders still hit 20". Trade-off is that its tighter through the upper chest but not uncomfortable. The sleeves seem overly tapered through the forearms and cuffs though - hopefully they will stretch out.

@Peter: Just re-read the thread and saw that you had the same forearm/cuff issue. Did yours stretch out with wear? Did it tighten up again with washing or stay looser?

@Manticore - Yeah they stretched pretty quickly with wear, and tighten back up whenever I wash it. I haven't thought about it since I got it though, so I guess there has been some permanent stretch as well :) They were damn tight in the beginning though, and I'm no Popeye!

Yeah, you'll have to be careful about sleeves, especially with knitwear.  A lot of IH shirts have those slim fitted forearms.  IIRC, it's because Haraki doesn't like getting a breeze blowing up his arms when he's riding his bike.  I understand the logic, but I have Popeye syndrome, so it's caused a few purchase fails for me.

I love the slim fitting forearms but yeah I could see how they would be too much for some.

Yep, right now they feel like I'm wearing extremely tight compression sleeves on each arm!

And/or the fabric flapping....

Is this the same fabric/weight as the IHTB-01? I ask because the one is described as Extra Heavy and the other Super Heavy, and while I understand these aren't scientific labels it implies a difference.
