The Henley tee has established itself as one of the ultimate men’s wardrobe staples.
While the shirt’s purpose has changed through the years, its powerful presence in fashion has remained, and we’re glad it did.
In 2023, you can find endless Henley styles and designs to suit any taste. So mark our words – the tee isn’t going anywhere.
Here are the best henley designs for 2023.
Casual and comfortable
The Henley does a perfect job combining style with casual comfort. This combination stems from the tee’s beginnings in the 19th century when the tee was worn as an undergarment.
Made from soft cotton and without a restrictive collar, it allowed the body to breathe and move freely while doing physical labor.
It’s probably comfort that attracted the team of English rowers to choose the shirt as their official uniform in mid 19th century. Fun fact, the name Henley came from Henley-on-Thames, a town that held the famous Royal Regatta.
With time Henley became a popular choice for other leisurely activities and later a real fashion statement.
Henley stands out with its soft fabric (from cotton to silk to merino wool) and 2-4 button placket. It’s perfect for the weekend, summer parties, or just hanging out at home.
Rag & Bone Classic Flame Long Sleeve Henley
Rag & Bone and their Henleys never disappoint. They radiate luxury and comfort and impress with little details. This Henley offers a traditional fit and looks good on everyone.
While a little on the pricier side, the tee is made of 100% cotton and is very durable, so you can be sure to wear it for a long time.
L.L.Bean Comfort Stretch Pima Henley Shirt
A true fan favorite, this stretchy and comfortable Pima shirt is an absolute must-have for every guy.
Relaxed through the chest and sleeves and with a slightly slimmer waist, the tee is soft and super-smooth.
Lastly, just a touch of spandex and raglan sleeves give the much-needed freedom of movement, so you can wear it all day long.
Banana Republic Brushed Waffle-Knit Henley
Banana Republic has always been a classy, stylish choice, and their ultra-soft, luxurious, vintage-inspired waffle-knit Henley made from a gorgeous cotton blend is no exception.
We love that it comes in a bold yet traditional stripe pattern and a traditional fit that will be in style today and in years to come.
Fresh Clean Threads Short-Sleeve Henley
Every wardrobe needs a short sleeve item of these and the Henleys by Fresh Clean Threads deliver both on style, color choice, and price point.
Made with the brand’s StratuSoft super-soft proprietary cotton-poly fabric, it looks great layered and on its own.
It’s incredibly comfortable, and with the price of just over $20, you can stock up on a few colors!
Lululemon Fundamental Long Sleeve Henley
Yes, Lululemon has some pretty fabulous menswear! And their long-sleeve Henley shirt is the perfect choice for your at-home lounge attire.
The tee is made from soft cotton fabric and the brand’s abrasion-resistant, stretchy and anti-stink blend that will serve you a long time.
As it’s designed as loungewear, there’s enough room in the chest and waist to be as comfortable as possible. Lazy weekends – sorted!
Uniqlo Waffle Long-Sleeve Henley T-Shirt
Uniqlo is always a great choice when looking for affordable basics. The Japanese brand offers quality, comfort, and style for all seasons.
Their ribbed waffle long-sleeve Henley has a classic collar and hem design and comes in a few basic colors that will work with most of your wardrobe.
The traditional loose fit also allows you to move freely, whether on a fun weekend trip or simply lounging at home.
