    @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.

    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 --> http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=23008736

    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).
