    Can anyone comment on the fit of these sweaters (see below)? I tried some on in the store and was surprised that a small (which I usually wear for most shirts/sweaters) was too tight. Just wanted to check and make sure I'm not going crazy. I thought RL stuff ran large. Any idea if these cotton sweaters shrink significantly or on the other hand start to stretch out after wearing? Thanks.

    Those half zips come in different quality/material levels and the fit is a bit different for each. I believe they come in marino, pima blends, lambswool & cashmere. Long story short, all of their more recent offerings have been slimmer. I went from a L to an XL in one season.

    I know this is an older thread, just hoping to spare people the trouble. Merino is so thin it's see-through, while the lambs wool (in tall-L) is cut to ridiculous proportions. I think I'm done with RL stuff for the time being.
