    Looks nice. I might head up there next week to check it out in person, Non-Denominational Holiday Bonus in hand.

    I felt compelled to take another picture where I didn't look quite so distorted.

    Sleeve width: I suspect it just looks especially wide because the fabric is very stiff.

    Got mine in a medium, wow what a shirt! I'm so bummed though because the armpits are soo high and tight it is practically cutting off circuation. The rest of it fits great if really slim. Would the arms on the large be significantly different? Any possibility of stretching?

    The shirt will stretch, But you might want to trade for a large if you want a better fit. It will not be as slim though...

    Fok.

    Looks good, contemplating between small and medium, depending on arm widths tho. Is there a huge difference?

    Holy crap! I just got mine and its fantastic! Definitely, planning on wearing it as a shirt/light jacket unbuttoned. Limited edition #69 out of 80. Nice.

    Just an FYI, I'm 6'1 and about 180-185 with long arms and it fits me perfect. I will try to post some fit pics tomorrow.

    Well done guys! I'm definitely looking into picking up some more Apolis.

    Fit-wise, after some wear I'm pretty glad I got an XL. I suspect the shirt looks (and feels) a little roomier than it is, due to the stiffness. An L would have been uncomfortably tight, especially in the chest and shoulders. And I almost always wear larges, occasionally mediums (in roomy brands).

    So for those of you that didn't size up a little, trying to exchange or trade for a bigger size might be prudent. It doesn't seem like the kind of shirt you'd want a constrictingly tight fit with.

    It's a pretty great shirt though. Does a better job of blocking the wind than the coat on over it does. Today I was noticing that the inside is quite soft to the touch, almost like felt.

    ...and what size are you mysteriously referring to?

    #69 is probably a large.

    Does that mean #1 is an XS?
