Giles or Alex:  any chance of a grey/white or purple/black restock?  I am looking for XL.  Any information appreciated.

@browniemcghee none in production I'm afraid. But that doesn't mean we won't re-run soon!  ;D

Thanks for getting back to me.  Wishing I’d sized up on the purple.  It is great regardless.

Finding it really hard to size for these. I’m generally an XL in IH shirts, but the XL in these has a chest measurement of 21.5 inch seems really small, and I’m certainly not that broad of a guy.
Probably over thinking and should just take a punt, but do people generally size up for these?

They are quite trim in the shoulder and chest.

I’m XL in shirts and wear L or XL in these. The L works as a base layer under a vest or jacket and fits closely. I’m carrying some extra weight at the moment so they are not as flattering. The XL works great on its own or with a tee under.

I’m 6’ and weigh about 15st. Quite broad and heavy built.

I’d imagine XL would be right for you.

Missed this, thank you as always @neph93 . Got my eye on the grey/black, these things look bloody killer but the numbers on paper just didn’t make sense to me!

Measure any t-shirt or long sleeved top you own, (unless you wear them baggy). The p2p sits higher than with a shirt as the armholes are shorter, and they are intended to be closer fitting than a shirt too.

I’ll try and put on one of mine tomorrow to show the fit…

I had been looking at these but thought the measurements looked on the smaller side (figured they were intended to be fairly close fitting).

I have sized up one or even two times on IH thermals, tees, and extra heavy jersey stuff. Bigger the better, IMO. When they’re base-layer tight, they make me feel/look like a sausage.

I’ve taken the punt on an XL, judging by the experience of others I think it will work. Excited to get my hands on one, I’ll post pics when it arrives.

As promised, albeit a bit late, this is a smallish L. My other L is defo bigger.

This a a close fit. Like I said earlier, these get used as a base layer under vests, CPO’s, or when I’m wearing a type III all day.

My XL’s are more like jumpers. I can wear them alone for a relaxed fit, or get a tee under them.

@neph93 appreciate it mate, this helps. You look great in it and I love the colour with the vest. You’re more hench than I am, so I’m confident an XL will give me my desired looser fit.

Also: those boots are glorious. Wesco British tan roughout leather?

I'll be happy when the cladding to my right, matches the cladding to the left of the pic. Otherwise, thank you  ;)

@browniemcghee thank you too!

@jerkules they are the standard brown oil tanned with the rough out. I far prefer the feel of the beefy 7oz oil tanned leather and Wesco have made there standard brown more chestnut than chocolate now. The domain and horsehide leathers are beautiful, and the face of the oil tanned quite dull, but the combination of rough out and the thiccccc-ness of oil tanned is unbeatable imho.

Feel I got really lucky with this, the fit is exactly what I was hoping for - relaxed but not baggy. The fabric is totally special, never felt anything like it. When you compare the price of this to the Real McCoy’s Buco long sleeve (which I’ve admittedly not held but I’m sure would be very good), I actually think the IHTB-01’s are a bit of a bargain!
Thanks all above for sizing advice.
