Here it is, right out of the box (also pictured). The first thing I noticed, which completely took me off guard, was that my hands couldn't fit through the sleeve openings. It actually took some struggle to slide the sleeves over my hands. Hopefully things will stretch enough, or maybe the stitching will finally give way, but putting on this piece is not simply a matter of putting it on. I'm counting on heavy air conditioning in every indoor place I go, otherwise everyone gets to see me take off my pullover for five minutes. But the fabric is amazing, and so is the fit. In a month, I'll be wearing it in public. Edit: I forgot necessary details. I'm wearing a small, and my chest size is around 36.5". You may find yourself surprised at how large your hands are after you try to put this thing on, but it fits great everywhere else.
