206 Loopwheeled LS Henley - Charcoal


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


The 206 Henley is no nonsense, but in a very nice way (some might say elevated). Loopwheeled henleys aren't exactly commonplace, so we're very pleased that the 206 features both a fantastic fabric as well as a great fit. It's relaxed through the body, with triangle inserts under the sleeves for extra ease of movement, and a phenomenal drape.

It feels right to call the fabric the star here - after all, the 100% cotton, 7.8oz (220gsm) loopwheel knit hits the perfect sweet spot for knitwear that's both soft and substantial. Pretty excellent for wear year round, the loopwheel knit breathes well when it's hot out, and insulates comfortably when layered on top of... and regardless of weather, it never stops being comfortable.

That said, the excellence of these henleys certainly doesn't stop with the fabric. Real mother of pearl buttons close up the extended and reinforced placket, and the sleeves end in lightweight knit cuffs (to securely cradle your wrists). The torso is cut slightly longer to account for shrinkage, and looks great worn tucked or untucked (even after a few washes).

True to size. Will shrink ~1" in length after washing, but will stretch back out with wear. Wash cold on delicate cycle, hang dry.
