    yea, has to be v-neck =\\. I don't like others much because they don't look like henleys (whatever a henley is, I guess I have a diff definition in mind).

    When was the henley first created? 1850s? Wasn't it suppose to be a commoner's shirt / work shirt or something, and they didn't have buttons on henleys back then, or did they?

    That civil war one looks ok. What are the best coloured henleys? Or are the most traditional coloured ones?
    But the civil war one looks like thermals.

    For some reason, henleys only seem right to me in greys/earthtones.

    +1. Though aeglus had a fit a while back with a short-sleeve red one with ribbed cuffs. looked quite good.

    Taupe, olive green, etc. Maybe an eggplant purple would look good as well. In any case, no fruity girly colors.

    How about a dedicated subforum?
