Not so fast: Don’t store your long-sleeve henleys just yet. In fact, if I were you, I’d consider adding another option to your arsenal of stylish spring layers: The Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley is one of the best men’s henleys to buy now, and that’s just a fact. It’s no less than a classic henley option from one of my favorite menswear brands, one that delivers luxurious takes on men’s style staples — that includes the coveted Billy Reid Bond Peacoat and now, the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley. What’s the case for keeping a henley on hand as the temperature heats up? Well, my friends, the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley is made witha waffle thermal fabric that should breath nicely and layer easily without being too suffocating. In fact, I’d even pair the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley with the seriously cool, rugged Billy Reid Denim Shirt for easygoing spring style. The henley really can be your best friend when it comes to spring layering, and that’s a fact.
It starts with the washed-out, spring-friendly Terracotta color of the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley — this is the perfect complement to slim light wash denim and classic chukka boots for when it’s too warm for a jacket, but slated to get a bit breezy later. You could even layer the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley underneath a stylish zip hoodie (as seen in this post) for an early morning weekend coffee run or a day of travel. And to be sure, you can absolutely wear the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley with a navy cotton blazer — paired up with tan chinos and leather loafers — for some office-ready style on an easygoing spring day.
And if you’re hesitant about diving headfirst into the henley game with one that’s more than $100? Just know that the Billy Reid Mini Waffle Henley should consistently deliver on quality given what the Billy Reid brand has going for it — the lauded American designer uses prime attention to detail in all facets of the menswear game. So, this isn’t a flimsy henley from a fast-fashion brand … you can be sure of that. From the light spring color to the easy wearability, it should become a new go-to with everything from off-white jeans and tan suede chukkas to indigo denim and a light chambray shirt — talk about essential spring style, right?
