Ashmarlin - Review and Giveaway

I am so excited to share this with you - I got to review a layering shirt from Ashmarlin, and I AM IN LOVE!!

featured product

I have been wearing it under everything!!  Seriously, BEST Undershirt I've ever worn. Yes, they sent me a shirt to review, but yes, this is my real opinion.
High points:

--the fit - unbelievable!
--the fabric - it's spandexy, so it lays flat and doesn't bunch
--the lines - not only does it add interest, but seems to keep me cooler
--the neckline - doesn't gape when I bend over
--the sleeves - they don't pinch because the seam overlaps in the armpit area, see:

Haven't ever heard of Ashmarlin??  Here's a blurb (underlines added by me!):

A year ago my wife Linda and I set out to create the best layering t-shirt on the market.  The options at the time were poorly made and tended to pill and fray.  Fit was also a problem with most either bunching up or cutting so tightly under the arm they were nearly impossible to wear.
We believe we have crafted the best fitting, most comfortable layering t-shirt on the market.  We used an ultra-soft nylon combined with spandex so the shirt can be worn fitted but still has lots of easy stretch.  We designed a subtle striped mesh into our shirt to add visual texture while at the same time allowing the shirt to breathe.  Finally we made sure the sleeve and body hems were kept flat for nearly invisible layering.
The fact that our shirts are made in the USA is no accident either.  We believe strongly in domestically made apparel and when possible will always choose to build our products right here in the USA.
We think you’ll love our top so much you won’t want to cover it up at all.

I have lots of layer Tshirts, some cheaper than Ashmarlin's.  I normally love cheap stuff, but THIS SHIRT IS WORTH THE EXTRA COST!

We have a theory at our house - - buy everything cheap, except the stuff you use all the time - for example, spend a lot on a matress, you use it every night so it needs to be great.  Kate has this theory on jeans - buy one amazing pair instead of 10 so-so pair.
This is shirt follows those theories - - for a colored undershirt that you'll wear occasionally, go ahead and get the cheap ones, it won't matter.  But for a black or white undershirt that you will wear all the time, put your money on Ashmarlin.  Can you tell I love mine!?!?
