On the fence between Homespun and one of The Real McCoy's new henleys at BiG. Anyone here own both?

they are slim but i don't think 29-31" is accurate lol.  that's tiny.


i'm 5'-8", 145, 37" chest approx.  i like the fit of the mediums.  they shrink a little bit in the washer/dryer.


it looks like JCrew has partnered with Homespun.  might have to check out one of them.

About 120 euros for the basic ones when they go on sale, to about 300 for the shirts / more elaborate designs

how do the homespun knitwear henleys run size wise?  i want to get one of these -



the first one says "slim fit" in the description but the second one doesn't.  i have no clue how to size and couldn't find much with a quick google search.  i wear a small in the jcrew slim t shirts and slim sweaters.  i don't have any other shirts from there currently.

@jmaudi0Homespun Knitwear makes some of the most durable and warm henleys out there. Order a size up if you're looking for a non-layering shirt. They fit quite snug.

100 organic including dyes and fair trade. Cannot surpass quality.


Check out their production process:

Does anyone else think that henley's look weird on men with slim shoulders?  I'm basing this on personal experience.  For that reason I am looking for a thicker, more full henley.  Any recommendations?


I really like this one, but they only have XS -->

Gotta put in a good word for Merz b Schwanen. Very small operation, everything is made on their premises by a handful of people, using the original vintage machinery for circular knitting. Peter Plotnicki is an incredibly passionate person and he won't settle for anything that's not right. I love the shirts, materials, fit and details.

If I could bring this thread back to life, I would love to hear what people's recommendations are for henleys in 2017.

I've seen the Merz Schwanen garments and they are very nice, but luxury priced, and therefore something a bit out of the range I would think most of us are going for. I want to be able to buy 8 of these things (short and long sleeve) for under 500 bucks, not over a G.

American Apparel is gone now. Uniqlo doesn't seem to have any on their web site at the moment. A couple other names mentioned in the thread are also luxury items rather than high quality for the regular guy. I personally am not able to get J Crew at sensible costs after shipping and import tariffs coming into Europe where I live.

Anyone else have further suggestions? Any recommendations on high quality mid-priced henleys 2017 would be greatly appreciated!

Pistol Lake is my go to. Their stuff is made in Los Angeles, they're priced pretty decently (40-45 dollars for ss/ls, 35-40 if you're preordering on a short run), the organic cotton jersey they use is super comfortable and they did a lot of work trying to nail the sizing down.

Try the SCHIESSER REVIVAL Range, best materials, vintage cuts, german engeneering = deadly cool ;o) - btw for the colder seasons I highly recommend the model ERICH, I have both (navy & olive) & rate them even above my Merz B. Schwanen ... Classic fit, tight, long, true to the size - you can't go wrong w/ SCHIESSER (engl: Shooter).
