    Ibex is coming back next month.

    I just got an e-mail that Ibex is planning on relaunching next month (or in a month, or something like that).

    https://www.ibex.com

    I always found their clothing fit me better than Icebreaker, and Ibex had more regular styles for just regular life or travel.

    Yay! I've really fallen in love with merino - have you checked out the Meriwool 250 weight baselayer shirts? I have them in 3 colors now and they are just dreamy. I just wish I could find LS merino shirts in white or close to it. Always black and grey! :-)

    They have a Facebook group called Ibex Insiders - anyone can join. I think the company was taken over - so it remains to be seen if the new iteration will embody all the qualities that made Ibex a beloved brand. They do seem to be open to feedback and wishlists, so go and make your preferences known!

    Ibex occasionally had lighter colors, like a dusty pink or a sky blue.

    There used to be an Ibex store in Seattle, and I would stock up during sales. Fairly close to their closing I picked up a couple of merino and silk turtlenecks in white and in black, and even those blends were incredibly soft and sleek. Definitely my favorite of the merino clothing companies. Thank you!

    Nice! Love their stuff. Hopefully it comes back as good as before. If you haven’t checked out Duckworth, give them a go. Love their Vapor t-shirts.

    Agreed... Ibex is great!

    Stocked up on their woven wool shirts before they went under, but am glad they are making a comeback.



    PS - Re that Duckworth link, be aware that the website's description of the Vapor T seems deliberately opaque about fabric content. Reviews reveal that it is made mostly of synthetics, though, with just 38% wool. :-( I get that manufacturers are increasingly using blends, but that seems like a really low wool content for that price point. I have had good luck picking up T's with a high merino content (87-100%) for much less during Ibex and Icebreaker sales. YMMV
