Rated 5 out of 5 by birdiegal great undershirt
I have worn silk myself for many years, and find it irreplaceable in winter weather.
I bought one of these shirts for my husband, and he loved it so much that Santa brought two more.
When wearing silk, thickness is not necessary for warmth. Try it and see....so superior to synthetics that it is well worth the price.
I bought a very inexpensive delicate garment bag in the laundry section of the grocery story, put silk things in that, and machine wash (line dry)with no issues at all.

I ended up returning just because with the white it was too think/see through, and i've found thicker ones for less. Not a bad garment to wear as an undershirt. Item is pretty light for serious warmth. Returned

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimisham works in bitter layering
This past winter, we had record cold in Rochester, NY, and record snow. I was out in it every day clearing out 100-yd. driveway. But I was warm by adding this extra bottom layer which is lightweight and unencumbering. Also wore these on photo trip to SE Alaska, where it was cold and damp. Layered it with a Tneck, sweater, and shell. Perfect. Not too hot, and not chilly and damp like the weather. And it takes up virtually no space in drawer or suitcase.

Everything you expect from silk underwear. Exceptional quality you expect from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bev9876 Great fitting undershirt
My husband has been looking all season for these shirts when I finally found them on your site. They are light weight yet warm. He likes to go for a walk outside early in the morning, these shirts keep him toasty warm. He likes them a lot. The fit is great.

LL Bean quality and great fit made me repurchase this product in several colors over the years.We have never found a warmer and better quality long silk underwear product any where. We have been happy with the crew neck top and also the silk bottoms. True to size .

Rated 2 out of 5 by aebteacher Women's silk stockings, not men's underwear
Once you put it on, you realize that the material is what ladies' half-transparent silk stockings used to be made of. Don't dare to wear this into men's locker room.

The silks work great as a base layer on moderately cold days and as a first layer under an additional base layer (see powder drys) on really cold days. Wicks well to keep you dry and warm. Great fit and feel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WebfootJack Light Silk, unreliable sizing
I agree with other reviewers, this silk garment is truly light material, verging on sheer. In virtually all my shirts I wear a Large Regular. My waist is 35/36, Chest 43, neck 18, 5'10" tall. I bought this shirt in large, tall. I weigh 203. The body girth and chest fit well, The sleeves fit well (I usually wear a 34 sleeve). The body length was the right length for the average tall person. For me it was about 2" long. If I had ordered a regular shirt there is no doubt that the sleeves would be too short.
The shirt is a dream to wear. Comfortable as a sleeping garment, and warm as a base layer in these cold days. I have hand washed the shirt three times, drying flat on a thick towel. Dries quickly.
I really would like to see LLB carry a similar shirt in medium or heavy weight silk. The supplier needs to improve their size standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dippysgma Great fit!
My husband is thrilled with his gift. They fit beautifully with no added bulk. He spends a great deal of time outside, and this underwear keeps him very comfortable! He even told his boss who was going to check them out for himself.
