High-quality construction and a textural waffle-weave produce a henley that is both comfortable and versatile. Note: Size one down from your typical Gustin shirt size. This fabric sews up a bit big.
Our cozy waffle-knit henley is made from 100% cotton milled in Los Angeles. At 6 ounces, this textured fabric is perfect for a cool winter day. It's also ideal for wearing as a base layer because the garment is semi fitted. The fabric is remarkably soft because we garment wash each henley. Finally, picking the right shade is a must. We keep it classic, with a crisp, jet black. Pair this with a pair of raws or a khaki chino and you’re set for the day.
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. Super clean 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.
