    Hello Chambertin,

    Thank you very much for your detailed, and candid review.

    We have some clients who share the same experience: The first time they wear the undershirt, it feels a bit different mainly because they are not used to wearing fitted undershirts. After a day or two, they don't even feel it on them anymore. I think this is the best compliment one can get when it comes to undergarments. Thank you.

    We have nothing to add to all the wonderful features you have mentioned. We are just really glad you like our undershirt.

    However, we would like to address the only issue, the bonded ends started to come undone after repeated washes and drying in the dryer (in this case, 30 times +). We have become aware of it and it seems that the bonded reinforcement on the collar front and the waist, in some cases, have this issue. We have not encountered any issues with the side seams or the sleeve seams.

    Bonding in textile is fairly new, and we are the first to make men's undergarment entirely using this technology. Rest assured that the issue is noted and our promise is that we always strive for continuous improvement. We will make it better.

    One last note: We recommend washing in cold and hang-drying the garment. As you mentioned, our fast-dry fabric dries quickly. This makes hang-drying a breeze and will definitely prolong the life of the garment.

    Cheers,
    The GIIN Team

    Jen very kindly sent me an undershirt to try and I have to say, while it's different to what I'm used to (undershirts tend to be more like tanktops here in Australia), it's extremely soft and comfortable and essentially disappears under your clothing. I've worn it a few weeks now, off and on, and it's come through the wash perfectly. I can highly recommend this product and the superb dealings with Jen and her team. Well done to all involved :)

    I was fortunate to receive one of their undershirts in the first giveaway contest. I wore it frequently over a period of about 6 weeks. Then I contacted them and ordered a bunch more, as all my existing undershirts suddenly seemed like total crapola.

    Here's what I like about them:

    1) Great fit. Form-fitting, but short of compression wear.
    2) Soft, lightweight and seamless. I forget I have one on.
    3) Super comfortable - see above.
    4) While I wasn't initially in love with the putty-beige colour, I can tell you that it absolutely disappears under dress shirts of all shades. You just don't see any outline. Good stuff.
    5) The deep U-neck means they are equally wearable with open-collar shirts as they are with a shirt and tie.
    6) Length - these things stay tucked during the course of a working day - no riding up and bunching around the waist.

    If there's a downside, I haven't found it.

    Also want to sing praises for Jen and her team. I was a recipient of the boxer briefs, and they're great. They're comfortable and have become my only choice when wearing white. They've held up well after several washes, and I'm happy to recommend them.
