Silk shirts
I have a couple of never-used WinterSilks short-sleeved shirts, size large. I haven't tried them on, but they don't look especially big to me, and I wear M usually. PM me if you're in...

Hokas
I haven't used them yet, but I met a section hiker on the CDT this summer who was wearing Hokas. She LOVED them and said that she uses them for all of her hiking and running, up to ultramarath...
