    I don't realy own an Henley shirts and I was looking to buy some long sleeve ones since it's starting to get a bit colder outside. What are some of your guys favorites? I'd like the price to be kept down if possible but shoot for the moon if you think it's worth it.

    Could probably be answered in ask a question. Regardless, AA henleys are cheap, and slim fitting. Great bang for the buck. If you wanted something more expensive and a bit better quality, there are a bunch of henleys being sold by our affiliates. Henleys seem to be a bit more popular this fall than last, but maybe that's just me. So you should be able to find a wide variety. The AA ones might be your best bet because they're cheap for layering.

    Yes they are cotton/poly. The short sleeve ones are 100% cotton though.

    Michael J Krell: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ewpost&t=27219 Best henley I've ever owned. Probably will order another before the year's out.

    The B. Son henley's are great. context has them. They are quite long in the sleeves and body.

    I also got some from 429 that are really nice.

    I've always avoided henleys because they remind me too much of Eddie Bauer and 1994. Or was that Eddie Vedder?

    Anyway, anyone know of a good henley that's widely available, relatively trim, and under $50? I may end up sizing down at Old Navy or Gap. I'll be wearing it mostly under other shirts, and I don't really care whether it's jersey or thermal.

    There's nice suggestions in this thread, but mostly too expensive, and I don't really care for AA's version.

    Thanks for the offer, but that would be way too small for me. [​IMG]

    i dont have either which really pissed me off cause i so have the build for henleys... lookin to purchase some soon... but although expensive id have to go with inhabit, and generra, as far as the best lookin to the eye i think theyre razor sharp... although im sure wings and horns would be awesome too..

    i tried on a wing & horns henley at barneys (thin stripes in muted colors, great slim fit btw), anyway would one of these be okay over a button up? i think so.

    I just bought a few of their thermal henleys in size medium. After a wash they fit me pretty well, hitting right at the belt line. I generally like a henley with more than two buttons, but these are ok for about 30 bucks on sale from 42.50.

    i have an athletic body type and while i can wear AA mediums in their tshirts (line dry, no dryer) - i prefer to size up on the henleys to XL, bc they shrink a lot. i like shirts snug on my shoulders and chest but i don't like them clinging to my lower torso - it tends to look too much like and undershirt when i wear them that tight.

    i would use the same philosophy with the tshirts, but they don't shrink up like the henleys do.
