Love affair with Henley
We’ve featured the Henley a couple of times here and there, but never gave it the attention it deserves. This particular t-shirt/shirt is ridiculously versatile. At first glance, it may come off as a singular, casual first-layer style of shirt. Take a closer look, and you’ll find how there are sophisticated details there can be in a so-called casual shirt. It also happens to be one of the most comfortable tops to have on, no matter what time of the year it is. Button it up What separates the Henley from other shirts is its buttons. It’s a cross between a t-shirt and a polo shirt. More commonly, you’ll see a three-button Henley and four buttons on others. It’s a crewneck so there is no hassle with unwanted collars. Long and short You have two types of Henley shirts: the long-sleeve and short-sleeve. The long-sleeve Henleys can be used for the colder days of the season, and it is a wonderful substitution to a dress shirt for your blazer combination. In fact, the long-sleeve fills in quite well with both a casual and tailored suit. There is almost this unspoken suave attitude when you match up a Henley with a suit. You’ve got the buttons, but don’t have the time to wrap your neck with a tie. The short-sleeve, however, is a more casual fit than anything else. But keep in mind how versatile this item is. It’s so damn attractive you’ll be able to wear quality Henleys on a night out to impress your date. Keyword: quality. Remember, today’s menswear is nearly up-to-par with that of women’s. This means that even something as simple as a Henley is given extra attention to its fabrics and cuts. It can go from an under garment to a semi-formal piece real quick. The short-sleeve can also serve as the best base layer beneath all the others during the colder months.

No matter how much it costs, a Henley can serve its purpose long after its initial release. Longevity and versatility are two very important characteristics to look out for when you are investing in a wardrobe

The feels As mentioned before, Henley shirts are some of the most comfortable items you can have in your closet. These things are made with the utmost care and focus. Let’s paint a picture for you so you get a better understanding how classy this item can be. Let’s take the ingredients of a short-sleeve Henley from Schiesser, for example. It’s 100% cotton, ribbed knitted, mother of earl buttons, ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem. And the mind blowing bit? It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Sure, there are plenty of high-end fashion labels that would charge you a pretty penny, but it’s absolutely unnecessary to shell over too much cash in order to look your best. There are equally stylish and quality approved Henley shirts from H&M, which by the way are made in Bangladesh. Don’t tell Trump that. He did enough damage with this those hideous caps. In style It’s true, not all men possess Henley shirts in their closets. However, this is an important piece to a very large puzzle. In other words, it should be a modern-staple. No matter how much it costs, a Henley can serve its purpose long after its initial release. Longevity and versatility are two very important characteristics to look out for when you are investing in a wardrobe. While the functionality is checked off, the aesthetics of it all is sexier than most. Yes, you will give off the illusion you have larger muscles than you actually do while wearing a Henley. It’s cut in a very flattering way, so you won’t have any issues showing off that figure of yours. Unless, of course, you have a beer-belly. In that case, hit the gym, bro. On the topic of exercising, the Henley’s durability contributes to the longevity it provides for every man. Now, we’re not saying wear a new Henley to the gym. It’s just a good idea to have on any quality item.
