Introducing our first pigment dyed henley. Our Faded Black Henley is dyed with pigment that creates a more distressed look than our reactive dyed garments. Inspired by classic American workwear, designed with a minimal aesthetic, this may be our most versatile garment to date. Constructed with a ribbed collar and cuffs, sturdy Corozo buttons - this is a top quality, USA made garment with all of the details dialed in perfectly.
This Gustin Henley is made from 100% cotton milled in Los Angeles. By now you know we like going all-American on product launches and our henley is no exception. Our goal was to start with fabric suited for the cold weather ahead. At 8 ounces, this style is great for layering but warm enough to be worn alone on a cool day. It's remarkably soft because we garment wash each shirt. Finally, picking the right shade is a must. It is dyed a muted black that looks like it has faded over time like your favorite pair of jeans. This all purpose garment can be dressed up or down, and will look great paired with raw denim, chinos or any of our jackets.
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. Clean overlocked 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.
