Short-Sleeve Henleys Are a Thing and Here are the 7 Best

There are certain style staples that make any guy look good. The short-sleeve henley is one of those staples. With roots in sporting culture, the henley first started as a functional shirt, then grew into an essential beloved by guys who valued a relaxed touch with classic styling potential. That leads us quite nicely into our picks for the best short-sleeve henleys for men — it’s an easy-to-wear piece that works as well on its own as it does layered under a denim shirt or a classic plaid cotton on breezy summer days. Wear these with slim chinos, your trusty pair of broken-in blue denim or black jeans, and a little bit of laid-back swagger.
