Fifty Plus (50+) - Wool Jersey source....?

My last ancient wool jersey shrank (not that I've expanded) to where my belly button leaves a distinct outline.
Someone suggest a good source for a nice merino wool jersey that would fit the budget of an almost retiree?
Ibex (http://www.ibexwear.com/shop/products/2/104/mens-cycling) is one, I have three of their jerseys and like them fine, Wabi Woolens (http://wabiwoolens.com/) is another, and is reported to be of very high quality, Joneswear (http://wabiwoolens.com/) is another, but is short on stock, and Smartwool (https://www.smartwool.com/default.cfm#/Mens/Apparel/_/_/2422/) has one now, but its a blend.
None of these are going to be cheap. I tend to recommend Ibex because I've been very happy with the jerseys that I have purchased from them.

If you watch Nashbar, they occasionally have nice prices. I got two of these (http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product_10053_10052_517541_-1_202103_10000_202492) for $50 each, and they are $60 now, but I've seen them listed there for $100.

This undewear shirt (http://www.campmor.com/terramar-mens-thermawool-superfine-merino-wool-zip-t-neck-shirt.shtml?source=CI&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=75184) isn't a jersey, but it's cheap: $35
I mention it because my wife got me some wool underwear from Sweden (this (http://www.woolpower.se/en/asp/produkter_1_7122.asp)), and I've worn it under a regular jersey when it's around 42 degrees here. It works great!

Rivendell has several wool styles available. Not the cheapest, but quality stuff and comfortable:
