Robert Owen Undershirts **REVIEW**

AD -My husband is a lucky bean at the moment. We have been offered some great products that he really has benefited from. I have also got him to write the reviews for me sometimes which is a bonus. He is however, always cold. He feels it a lot more than me and the gremlin, so layering up for him is pretty important, especially when it is as freezing as it is at the moment. He could do with an undershirt. When we were contacted by Robert Owen undershirts to review a product, my husband was very keen.

Robert Owen website

Robert Owen are the leading British undershirt manufacturer.  They have thought long and hard about their products, style, fabric and production. They are made from 95% bamboo, no cotton and this results in a soft, breathable shirt. It will keep you warm (but not too hot!) and in those tricky, stressful work conditions, it absorbs sweat to keep you comfortable and confident all day long. For my husband, they also keep the chills away.

He was happy to pose for some shots (without his head!).

Hubby was sent a crew neck Chester, as seen on the picture below, which retails at £29.99.

The product arrived really promptly after ordering which is always good.

Hubby wore the undershirt for work under his usual pink work shirt and was really happy with the product. It has been very cold at the moment, so the undershirt provided extra warmth when walking to and and from the train station.

He is very lean and tall, so ordered the 42 inch undershirt, as this is his usual suit size. It was a perfect fit, with the material being stretchy and very soft and comfortable against the skin.

My hubby can get a bit of a sweat on on his usual commute, as he walks to the station, but the undershirt absorbed this, avoiding any embarrassing sweat marks and odour.

He was really pleased with the product and even talks of sleeping in it, it is that comfortable!

If you are thinking of a gift for the man in your life, this is one for the shortlist!

Disclosure – We were sent the undershirt free of charge. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

    This looks like something Dan could do with. I love that he loves it so much he wants to sleep in it 🙂

    This sounds really good, the bf would definitely be interested for the breathability and sweat soaking as as you say, the commute can really get your sweat on!

    I’ve heard really good things about bamboo, there are health benefits too I think. An undershirt and a watch, lucky boy. No need to get him a birthday present!! Thanks for hosting #bestandworst xx

    It wouldn’t occur to me to ever think of an undershirt! You can’t even see it under the shirt #bestandworst

    My husband is always hot so would never wear a vest even in winter, unlike me who wears one right through summer! This one looks fab though and I bet your husband was pleased to get a review product passed his way! #bestandworst

    Rev T is always looking for decent white t-shirts. I’ll wave this post at him and see what he thinks. Thanks for sharing

    Looks great. My husband is the exact opposite, he’s always boiling and I’m the one that’s always cold!

    I’m curious if this shirt shrinks up at all in length? I’ve yet to buy undershirts for my husband that don’t start creeping up his belly after several washes! #bestandworst
