Greetings YouTube from New York City.
This video is going to be about my initial impression of two merino wool
t-shirts from the brand Woolly. This v-neck and this Henley! As I mentioned in previous videos, I’ve
adopted a minimalist lifestyle, so that means having less stuff. I also plan on
traveling the world soon and I’d like to travel for at least a year with just a
carry-on bag. I figured out that one of the ways to do
that is to incorporate merino wool clothing into my wardrobe. I have five
merino wool t-shirts by three different companies and they’re all at different
price points. This v-neck here and this Henley are made by a company called
Woolly. You can get these t-shirts for between $40 and around $50. These are
the shirts I’m gonna talk about today. But I also have this gray shirt and this
black shirt by unbound merino. The unbound merino shirts run about
sixty-five dollars apiece. So they’re about the middle price point. This
last shirt is by a company called Outlier and their price is on the high
end at about a hundred and ten dollars. So let’s talk about the Woolly shirts.
I’ve actually had this v-neck by Woolly for a few months, so I’m in a little bit
better position to give you a more in-depth review of this shirt. Even
though this v-neck is one of the more inexpensive merino wool products out
there, it’s been really durable for me. I wear this shirt almost every day
underneath my dress shirts for work, I’ve washed it numerous times, and when I
visited my mom, unbeknownst to me she decided to go grab my laundry and do it.
She washed this shirt and dried it in the dryer and it still held up. Let’s talk about the fit. This shirt is a medium. I’m 511 and around 165 pounds. I’m probably somewhere between a small and a medium for this shirt. It’s
a little bit loose but I don’t like super tight shirts anyway, so it fits me.
Like I mentioned before, the shirt is very durable. I wear it all the time!
It’s been my go-to first layer shirt here in the winter. I’ve been really
pleasantly surprised on how well this shirt has held up. I think all around
it’s an aesthetically pleasing shirt. my biggest complaint with this shirt is I don’t really like branding.
The shirt has this huge Woolly label at the bottom. I actually tried to remove
it but I started the mess up the shirt so I stopped trying to remove it. If I
could change one thing about this shirt, I would remove the branding on it. So now
let’s talk about the Woolly Henley. This Henley is much newer. I’ve only
had it about a week. It’s also a medium but it fits much more snug, so keep that
in mind if you’re going to get this shirt. I think it’s very aesthetically
pleasing, it’s not itchy, and it’s very form-fitting and fits well. Again one of
the things I don’t like is the branding. But at least it’s not so obnoxious on this
shirt. It’s just this little bitty Wooley tag here. However, I could still do without
that. Overall my initial impression of both of these shirts is that they’re
exactly what I’m looking for. They’re easy to care for. You can wear them
multiple times without them smelling and you can use them in multiple different
kinds of climates. Like I said, I’m going to do more in-depth reviews of both of
these shirts and my other three t-shirts in the future, so you can compare and
contrast if you’re trying to decide on which brand you’d like to go with. If you
like these shirts I’ll put a link in the description below so you can check them
out for yourself. This channel is going to slowly evolve into more of a Travel
