Adam, thanks for the interesting links.
One of my projects for this year is to completely pare down my wardrobe to nothing but Merino.
I'm a big fan of Wool & Prince button down shirts. They're quite pricey but if I pare down 10 shirts down to 3, I feel like I come out ahead. Supposedly they are re-doing their t-shirt by middle of this year too, so I'm looking forward to that.
I have a couple of merino t-shirts (icebreaker, patagonia, etc). I find the material too thin to be nothing but just a base layer.
My next purchases are going to be an Outlier t-shirt hoping that it has the 'cotton-like' weight and durability I'm looking for. Bluffworks chinos are also on the list.
I use a Henty Wingman to one-bag on business trips. I get shocked/complimentary comments from customs officials when they find my suit rolled up wrinkle free.
Speaking of customs, they tend to get suspicious when I only bring 2-days worth of clothing for a long multiweek trip. That's really been the only downside/inconvenience of Merino I've encountered so far.
Back to keyboards, I like the Microsoft folding keyboard quite a lot. The gap in the middle messes me up a bit though, so my typing speed isn't as fast. However, I like having all the keys laid out in front of me. I use Excel a lot, so arrow keys/cntl/shift/alt/page keys are important for my workflow. I'm very curious how I will adapt to the textblade in that regard.
