Soft cotton with a touch of texture combined with a trim fit might make this the most comfortable garment in your wardrobe. 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 and also ideal for wearing as a base layer because of it's slim fit. The fabric is remarkably soft because we garment wash each henley. The color is slightly off-white, which is exactly how it comes off the knit machine. Pair this with raws or chinos 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.
