One perhaps minor example of the great thought Luigi Bergamo has put into these clothes: No labels! The information that would otherwise be placed on a scratchy label -- which most people would cut out, leaving an uneven seam or potentially damaging the clothes -- is instead woven into the items themselves in an unobtrusive location.
I will get more Q36.5 clothes as they become available in my size for winter or next spring. Each item had something special -- to help achieve ideal movement and temperature control -- with lighter, thinner, more durable material than previously possible. I cannot wait for cold weather to try the Baselayer 4 with the integrated hood and gloves, or the hybrid "Que" early winter jacket/jersey.
The only piece I brought home with me yesterday was a simple short sleeve L2 baselayer (>15 degrees C). The material is all synthetic, but it feels luxurious to the touch, and has an incredible degree of stretch, so I felt comfortable that even my barrel chest and non-cyclist physique will be fine in the L/XL size.
