Daniel Neilson tests out a diverse range of base layers. On test Falke Long-sleeved shirt

Breathe in! This Falke shirt is a seriously tight top and more efficient for it. The pattern on it suggests a six-pack (or a Transformer), but that didn’t quite pan out when I put it on! Anyway, this Falke top is very thin and stretchy with minute seams around the body and flatlocked seams elsewhere. It’s also long in the sleeve and body. I like it a lot as part of a winter layering system.
