My Alternative Apparel shirts came in. I ordered from an eBay seller connected with shopblueco.com. Based on what you all have been saying, I must conclude that these shirts are counterfeit (no surprise at $8/a pop). No attached tags or branded packaging. Just the inner tags. The cotton is mediocre and too thin for use as anything but an undershirt and the stitching around the shoulder line is kind of squirly. The fit is a bit slim, which is cool but the cut overall is...
Okay Silky, you're on. I just ordered two AAs and a Taylor Stitch. Let's see how it goes.
AAfrican hair sheep leather. Hand made in England. And insulting them really only proves one's own ignorance. Rapha is the shit.

They are light and thin but not transparent. The stitching is beautiful and, in some cases, done by hand.

Oh man. You guys should all pick up one of these. I'm snapping them up in every color.     The Arc'teryx Skyline shirt. It's so soft. So stretchy. So breathable. So sunproof. Fits trim but not restrictively so. And it doesn't really show sweat.   FWIW, stains have been easy to get out.
When I go out with my buddy who rides harder than I do, we always ride new roads at a pretty moderate pace, not usually over 60 except on straightways. We pass a good twisty section that looks up to code, we'll turn around and hit it again backwards and forwards at our limits. But not the first time.
