    Picked up a Haedn overshirt and it seems like it will add some warmth in a relatively thin mid-layer / outer piece. It has a nice, soft fleece lining and the wool outer has a nice look, feel and smell (yes....it smells like wool ). I see using it mostly indoors in the winter as an overshirt to keep me warm in a cool office. Can anyone comment on whether it might get too warm indoors or how breatheable it is?

    Ooops, you are totally right and I was totally talking about the Dyadic when I read your post about the graph. Heading to the AV website now to read up on the Graph. Sorry about the confusion!! Steve

    I love the Graph Cardigan. It looks great with (almost :-) everything. I have it in ash and it's very versatile. I feel it looks best closed, since I find the large pockets push out the front sides of the cardigan when its unzipped (pockets are like big flaps on the inside of the sweater). It's great over a merino shirt but it can "dress-up" any base layer for work. Adds a thin, comfortable mid-layer to your winter setup. Breathes well and helps to retain heat. Works on its own in summer/fall and the merino keeps you cool. What's not to like? Oh yea.....the price. Well, it's hard not to feel like we overpaid for most AV stuff (your reference to AV premium), which is why we spend time here on the forum to rationalize. But with the Graph I think you have a piece with lots of wearing options. Enjoy!

    Any secret to making the merino long sleeve tee last so long? I just purchased one and wore it a few times over the course of a week, then decided to wash it this weekend. Bought some wool wash detergent and washed it with some other things. Hung to dry, then layed flat to try and keep shape. Seemed to go OK, but wondering if you have any secrets or if I am doing more than I need to? Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip on the collar. I will have to give it a try. I have the ash color and I would call it more of a mid-grey. On my laptop display the picture in this thread has brownish-tones which is not like the ash color in daylight at all.

    I like this "up" look on the overshirt. Does it hold this shape on its own, have snaps or do you need to iron in the crease?

    Perfect. I was hoping I could fit a blazer. Thanks.

    Speaking of sizing......how does the Galvanic IS fit? I am just under a 38 so that should be a small. Is the galvanic TTS. Should I leave some room? Thanks.

    Thanks branespload. I went back to your video and noticed comment. I really appreciate the video and the follow up. The anorak looks great!! How was the conduct in 40ish degrees? Did you have a mid-layer?

    Thoughts on the field over shirt as a light spring / summer "jacket". Just purchased a small "ash" color and thinking it could be a shirt and jacket. Although, I am trying to get my head around "uses = cold / wind / rain" and "air permeable".
