Rated 4 out of 5 by GaryDC Loose cuffs detract from a great product
I've worn these warm silk tops for years, and particularly appreciate the V neck which no one else seems to carry. Unfortunately the latest version has loose cuffs that slip down and show past the shirt cuff. The previous ones were nicer. Now I have to fold the cuffs to avoid them hanging out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by andalucianlady The feeling of pure silk
This is by far the warmest 100% pure silk to ever touch your skin. It is a perfect insulator without making you feel clammy or sticky. It wicks moisture away from your skin yet it will keep you warm in really cold weather and not over heat you in warmer weather. With skin sensitivity to other types of fibers, I find this itch and allergy free. It washes beautifully and dries quickly too. Best investment for soft luxuriously feeling thermal underwear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by renoartist feels nice, still too short in the torso length
Although this is described as "tall", it's still too short. My husband is not tall (5'10"), but he wishes this was a little longer in the torso. I hope that it doesn't shrink up when I wash it!
I purchased the med. regular, v-neck heavy-weight undershirt, which doesn't come in the "tall size" option. I find that length is barely long enough for me: I'm just 5'1". The women's silk undershirts come up to my waist, which is downright uncomfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrew1 Torso length a bit short.
Does not come down long enough on the torso. But the rest is true to fit. Sleeves fit. Like the V neck top as not too small and not to wide. Nice feel and nice white color. Could be just a little thicker though, as it is suppose to be a "Heavyweight".

Rated 5 out of 5 by CapD Meets Expectations
These are very soft, the fit is good, they have the right amount of stretch, they are very comfortable to wear under other clothes all day. They are breathable and yet still keep you warm (not sure how this works but it does). I tested them in high 30 low 40 degree temperatures (no wind) and I was comfortable without a jacket, wearing just another layer of clothes on top of them. You would most likely need more layers for colder temperatures even though these are rated heavy weight. I did notice some minor wear under the arms after the first use and wash, but it wasn't enough to cause concern. Overall great product and I will get more of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CB14 Fits well, nicely made, great weight
I purchased this as a gift for a male friend who lives in Upstate New York and is outdoors quite a bit. The shirt appears to be typical of other WinterSilks products--well made, well fitting. I have a couple of women's sets in medium weight, and this is a heavy weight, but we both think it will work well for colder climes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Florida17 A REAL Heavyweight Silk Undershirt
Finally, a true heavyweight that can insulate on cold winter's days. Well worth the difference in price over shirts sold as "medium" weight. This is the one to buy if, like me, you journey to (or live in) cold places.
