can get XL and L up later. note that all the weights have different fits. I found the 170gsm works best for my figure - they definitely fit quite large imo. the L is comparable to an XL OL "perfect tee"

220gsm is way more boxy and thicker

Almost all Arket t’s fit slightly big aside from the Merino ones in my experience.

Thanks for the heads up, good deal that, picked up three 170 gsm and three 220 gsm for £55.20 delivered.

Interested to see what the quality is like compared to these Next ones which are three for £15, have only worn and washed once but have washed well and retained their shape http://www.next.co.uk/g985136s26#369510

True, but i’m super eco friendly lately and feel a bit guilty sending items back and forth when I can easily avoid it

£20 per merino t-shirt ain't half bad either.

Got to admit, made in Bangladesh puts me off those Arket ones. Can't think I've had anything that's lasted that's been made in Bangladesh, not that I've had much in all honesty.

They got a bad review in the guardian as well which put me off previously.

Oh well, will take the plunge and make my own mind up.

don't think I would trust the guardian for fashion features.

recipes and restaurants however - they really have that covered

Definitely taking up that 3 for 2 / 20% off free postage offer. Got 6 of the 170 gsm's, £38 all in, can't grumble, hopefully they're a bit better than that guy's review in the Guardian!
