Cruise through the pages of The Style Guide any day of the week, and you just might find me singing the praises of a rugged menswear must-have: One of the best men’s henleys is the right layer to take you from the depths of winter into spring, starting right now. A rugged thermal henley can work wonders in plenty of different ways in your wardrobe, be it as a base layer with a tough waxed trucker jacket and the best leather boots, or worn on its own with dark indigo jeans as temperatures (slowly) rise. That’s what we’ve got on our hands today with the Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley, another A-plus menswear staple to carry you from early March into spring, properly outfitted.
It’s part of a crop of the best spring style essentials new into the well-stocked digital confines of San Francisco-based Huckberry, and your next spring look is going to better for it when you snag the Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley. The Surplus Collection from F&T blends hard-wearing materials like Cordura nylon with cotton for stretch, durability and comfort, and it all comes together in this fittingly military-inspired henley. Note the custom F&T buttons, matching the shade of the henley for a low-key, functional finish. Of course, that’s not all you’ll find with one of the best henleys for men.
The mini waffle texture on the Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley adds interlocking, insulating warmth without adding bulk, and it still moves with you (not against you) thanks to the interwoven Cordura and cotton fabric blend. Colors like Twill, Olive and classic Black drive home the utilitarian nature of the Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley — this is a henley meant for work and action, as well as lounging around the house with your favorite pair of weekend joggers. Huckberry notes this fabric is comfortable enough to sleep in (especially useful if you’re hitting the road this spring to a cabin or campsite), but it’s handy enough to layer up with atop your favorite flannel shirt when you step outside your lodgings.
Like most other Huckberry gear picks, the Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley is priced right for the quality and utility — it’ll run you $68 at Huckberry. That’s certainly more than a bargain henley or a standard cotton undershirt, but this Huckberry henley has more substantial fabric and wearability than something on the cheaper side of the equation. A contrast placket and stitching really lends itself to the military surplus inspiration behind the rugged and durable Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley, which is never a bad thing to have in your wardrobe. Before you throw on your trusty spring chore coat or denim jacket, make sure the Flint and Tinder Surplus Long-Sleeve Henley is your base layer of choice.
