Ibex Bromely Shirt - Men's

Sophisticated Travel.

When you were in college, travelling included peanut butter sandwiches, ratty t-shirts, and sleeping in the back of your car. While that was all a part of the adventure at the time, nowadays you enjoy travelling with a few more creature comforts—which includes trading in your ratty t-shirts for the more stylish Ibex Men's Bromely Shirt. Made from merino wool, this button up shirt offers classic style and performance comfort. It wicks away sweat and dries quickly while you're out on the trail, and it naturally resists odor, so you can stop for a post-hike dinner without having to change. With a timeless plaid pattern and traditional styling, this shirt takes you from the mountains to town without hesitation.

  • A classic button-up shirt for casual and active use
  • Merino wool construction wicks sweat and dries quickly
  • Naturally odor resistant to keep you fresh
  • Plaid design with dual chest pockets for a timeless look

Awkwardly proportioned

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

Possibly the strangest proportions I've ever come across. Too tight across the chest, too loose around the waist, and the sleeves are unwearably narrow. The fabric and attention to detail is wonderful... except that it doesn't size like other Ibex shirts and I can't imagine they did too much (or any) fit testing.

Impressed by how bad it is.

    Thought I would give this a try despite the other negative review. This shirt is in fact completely unwearable. I don't believe it is 100% wool, possibly 7.34532534% but no more. The material is scratchy, the fit is horribly awkward (unless you have a horribly awkwardly shaped body). The (full) price is ridiculous.

    The fabric IS wool. lol

    The reason it feels almost like a technical fabric is that it is woven, not knit. Ibex rather randomly and confusingly refers to it as "Rambler" wool: I have a couple of shirts in it (the Jackson and Trip models), and it is pretty fantastic.

    While it may not be soft and stretchy like knitted wool, it does soften up a bit with some washes. Its added structure really benefits the collars and overall drape of the shirts, and it generally feels more robust than knitted wool, IMHO. I wish all my shirts were made of it!

    Poor cut

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I am infatuated with merino wool and this was a great lighter weight shirt, not a thick flannel in case that's what you're looking for. The issue I had was that the cut was attractive when standing still, but range of motion at the shoulders was atrocious. It's as if the angle at the armpits was too acute. Super constricting and I had to send it back. Probably a fine shirt for a desk job or church. I'm a regular athletic build without bulky shoulders. Probably "true to size" with the caveat mentioned above. Perhaps sizing up would help?
