Guys look good in henleys. It’s the sexiest shirt a guy can wear and if you ask me, it’s a very romantic look. It may even be my favorite type of shirt for guys with its combo of nonchalant casual comfort and flattering fit. If I were a dude, it’s the type of shirt I’d wear all the time, heck I’m a girl and I still wear henleys because they feel really, really good. These shirts are a great nearly-year round shirt option for guys, but they could also double as an excellent Valentine’s day gift.
Stay away from the tried and true cliche gifts like watches, wallets, and even boxers go for something a little more pragmatic that’s also a little bit of gift to yourself too. I limited my search to henleys under $50 so the options below are all not only flattering, they’re affordable. Henleys may not be the swankiest gift, but it’ll make you guys look and feel sexy.
Solid Henley Long Sleeve T-Shirt – It’s waffled, it’s the right thickness, and it’s a really pretty blue. I’d go for this one if you already have a few henleys on board and need to add some color. It’ll be a great chilly spring/summer shirt.
Levi’s Henley Long Sleeve T-Shirt In Fitted Fit – Isn’t a classic black henley a must? Even I own a black henley and it’s my most comfortable shirt that’s still really flattering because of the slimmer fit, just like this version from Levi’s.
Paul Smith Henley Long Sleeve Top In Slim Fit – Initially I was unsure about the red stitching but realized that it adds an athletic feel to the shirt. But the main thing that’s wonderful about this particular henley is that it’s tissue thin and slim fit.
Surfside Supply Slub Space Dye Long Sleeve Henley – Henley’s are known for their comfort and this indigo henley looks especially comfortable because it seems super soft. The perfect casual long sleeve shirt.
J.Crew Flagstone Henley – Ooh yes gimme some navy. You cannot go wrong here. Classic fit, soft cotton, slimmer button down detail and a little bit of visual texture. Just yes.
Banana Republic Waffle-Knit Chest-Pocket Henley – This light gray henley features a small waffle knit that it looks incredibly soft and cozy. Great details with a chest pocket and trim in a slightly darker shade of gray.
