We asked our California based mill for an absurdly soft henley fabric and they delivered. Our new henley is defined by a speckled face and a brushed loop back. Complete your casual roster with this versatile garment.
This Gustin Henley is made from 3-End French Terry milled in Los Angeles. We love this material because of it's soft hand and how it reacts to dye. The looped back is slightly brushed and feels incredible against your skin. While the surface has a textured look, make no mistake, it's as soft as it gets. Even better, each henley is garment washed which minimizes shrinkage and contributes to the plushness. We realized this henley was something special when we overdyed it wine. The looped back dyes uniformly while the face exhibits a dynamic heathered effect. The net result is a unique garment that you will not find anywhere else.
A henley should have a close fit, which reflects its origin as an athletic uniform and 19th century Western American workwear. We set out to strike the right balance between a tailored fit and an easy to wear piece. The shoulders are fitted, which keeps the overall look clean. The body is slightly tapered so there is no billowing fabric, but roomy enough so that it's comfortable. The length hits just right so it falls below the waist line, but does not cover your entire backside.
Construction details are classic and sturdy. Flatlock stitching along the sleeves, cuffs and body creates an extremely comfortable and durable seam. Double needle stitching is used to attach the ribbed collar. The sturdy placket has 3 Corozo buttons that are typically reserved for our workshirts. They’re a deep grey shade with a slightly domed top and two holes for securing. Overall, this is the most intricately constructed garment in our knit line.
A quality henley made in the USA with domestic materials are typically priced over $75 each. The Gustin model allows us to offer you a radically better value.
