Personally, I would keep both :-)

I would go with the L @neph93 ... M looks a little tight imo, even for a vest

Ha. Don't think I haven't considered it. But I have an ever increasing number of mouths to feed, I just paid for xmas, and the aprons are coming.

My heart is telling me M, my head L. It should be noted that my heart is still under the impression that I'm 21 years old...

I think both look great. Can't go wrong. I guess focus on what you want to use it for. Maybe consider the possibility of gaining weight? In either case, your situation is ideal because I think both work well.

In this perspective (wearing M) it looks like keeping the "L".
But what about a T pic neph?

@neph93 I'd say L, so you can wear it over a flannel or other heavy shirt in the Spring and Fall - still works with a T - plus you might "expand" a bit - my weight tends to fluctuate +or - a few pounds, generally + in the winter.  But with the M, if you only wear with a T you could even leave it unbuttoned.

Ah, yes... had my black wabash on yesterday, love it. That shirt/jacket/vest combo you're rocking is genius.

Thank you all for the input, gentlemen. I went with the sensible option and took the L. As has been noted, the M was just a little too trim through the chest. Looked OK with just a tee but still marginal. At the end of the day, the L will get used more. I can heartily recommend this bit of kit. The type III in such a modern fabric ends up being sharp, as well as functional.

Agreed.

Perhaps the vest is the answer to my needs...

Plus, I wear a vest over a hoodie every morning at work, so I know it would see a ton of wear.
