A kind of underwear/top/thermal hybrid, you’d have to really try hard to go wrong with a henley. Perfect for layering up, warm enough to be worn on its own, we bring together six of the best including examples from Levi’s Vintage Clothing, Choctaw Ridge, Tender, Homespun, Joe McCoy and Shades of Grey.

We featured this recently and can’t stop thinking about its fire engine red goodness. Choctaw are guaranteed to set you up with a good Henley.
Made in Canada, this bright white henley is 100% cotton slub jersey features antique buttons and a rather nice contrast placket.
Joe McCoy, a reliable sort of guy, offers this black henley. Made in Japan, those wide ribbed cuffs are very nice indeed, as is that white placket and contrast stitching, steering it away from boring.
Are we up for polka dots on a henley? Yeah, of course we are. These are pretty subtle, white on grey, supersoft fabric, pearlescent buttons. Easy.
More oldy worldy goods from Levi’s Vintage Clothing. Based on an archive piece apparently, this is washed for a slightly pilled surface so none of that pesky breaking in needed.
Made in England, this one is inspired by vintage sportswear and underwear, Selvedge cotton calico neck with rubber rugby shirt buttons and loopwheeled interlock jersey.
