    MJK henleys are nice and under $50. I have a 3/4 sleeve one that is pretty nice.

    dude i have a j.crew henley that i bought but it shrunk a bit so i can't where it. its brand new. its a size small.

    id sell it to you if you want it. its a nice asphalt color that i really like. too bad i didn't buy a medium.


    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.

    Costume National Homme has some really nice ones with a deep placket.

    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.

    my three favorites are j. crew, AA, and polo's ribbed cotton henleys this season are really great. they were overpriced for a long time but they're down to about $40 on polo.com.

    the henleys on polo.com are ugly imo, like something from B.U.M or osh kosh.

    Anybody have recommendations for slim fitting waffle-knit henleys (preferably with 3 or more buttons)?

    RRL has some nice loose-knit henleys. I don't think they're waffle knit, but they're very nice.

    MJK is good. Although not the thickest, Alt App has some good ones that are slim fitting

    Rye GB wore one in a WAYWT a while back. They're pretty nice, but last I checked, they're around $130-140.

    I spent months banging my head looking for a henley. Most henleys tended towards two extremes:

    "¢ A button placket too small and narrow, making the shirt look too "underweary". This is certainly the case of AA.

    "¢ A button placket too wide, impractically long, poncey and International Male-ish (many of the higher-end brands including Generra.)

    I ended up getting this Topman henley on sale for !4 shipped. It was in sage greeen, which I liked, because to me, henleys only seem right in earth tones for some reason.

    Of course, I posted it in a WAYWT and was summarily dissed.

    Proportion-wise, the henleys I've liked the best are RRL and Theory. Both, naturally, are too expensive.

    J Crew would have been ideal for me in aesthetics and price if they were more like henley t-shirts rather than henley sweaters. Even Eddie Bauer's henley looked like it might have been nice were it not for the logo.

    I've got 4 short sleeve RRL henleys and 1 really heavy weight long sleeve RRL henley that will get busted out once it gets a little colder.
