My wife bought me this because I am obsessed with merino and I wanted a shirt that looked nice enough to wear to work. This shirt hit the spot. It is well made, light, and has the slightest subtle edge with the curved seams on the sleeves. I started with the "rope" color, but it didn't suit my Irish complexion, so I exchanged it for the dark green color, which was better suiting. You can't tell from the website, but the color is slightly heathered and a lighter color than it appears.
