    lately I've gained a bit of a beer belly.. the rest of my body seems thin except the gut.
    style dictates i should switch to darker flat colors.

    i'm thinking of henleys.. but are they still in style?
    would long sleeve or short be the way to go?

    obviously, but that will take adjustments in diet and exercise that will take time.
    while im doing i would like some new clothes.

    okay I was having some fun there, but the deal is that it depends on the henley and tbh I don't like them all that much.

    Ryan Gosling wears them a lot and looks good but then again he is RG so .....

    also I wouldn't spend a lot of $ on clothes unless you feel your weight is stable.

    good luck

    of all the clothes that depend on fitness, henleys might be on top of the list.

    they look like shit if they're not somewhat fitted, and if you've gained weight, you're almost certainly going to look like shit wearing a fitted henley.

    maybe lightweight v neck sweaters if you're trying to hide the gut? seriously though, attempting to camoflauge a beer belly is retarded. just lose the belly or deal with how you look

    Yes, you need to be very fitted. I prefer a round neck tee.

    In regard to Henleys themselves, have been in fashion this year - Gap, Brooks Brothers, and several others all had Henley's in the winter.

    Doesn't every mall brand make henleys every season.

    Dexter wears American Apparel henleys. Very fitted but a great shirt for the price. Good for layering as well
