#OOTD: A New Way to Wear Your Henley this Spring

So, you think you’ve got your transitional spring style all figured out, ehh? Maybe you’ve even picked up a rugged henley for the new season from a trusted brand like Flint and Tinder. But how to wear it? That’s why we’re here today, folks. Something as classic as a slub waffle henley can be easily overlooked when it comes to your rotation of spring style essentials — especially if it’s subtly stylish and doesn’t call attention to itself. That’s why we’re amping things up today with a new way to wear your henley for spring. Make no mistake, this isn’t an ensemble you would wear if you want tips on how to dress for the office — this outfit is perfectly rugged and ready for a spring weekend. Again, it all starts with a versatile henley and builds from there, including unique layering pieces like an indigo denim trucker jacket from Levi’s, tough workwear pants and naturally, rugged leather boots. I think you’ll find the overall effect is pleasing and unique, without straying too far into fashion-forward territory. So, let’s dive into the rest below, shall we?

The right way to pair up a classic henley with other men’s style essentials.

When you start out your #OOTD with a men’s style essential as reliable and classic as the timeless men’s henley, you’re guaranteed to like the results (at least, that’s what I think). The henley really is a go-anywhere piece. All that being said, we’re not exactly reinventing the wheel here … and there’s nothing wrong with that. Teaming up your henley with a classic trucker jacket from Levi’s is but another way to freshen things up. The same can be said for the choice to throw on rugged workwear pants instead of slim tan chinos or charcoal five-pocket pants (although both would work well here, too). And on the footwear front, I’m always a proponent of rugged leather boots — the boots pictured above make this ensemble one that’s fit for a weekend burger bar outing or a casual Sunday brunch (or an early morning coffee run, or even a concert … you get the picture). What’s more, reaching for a stylish leather watch from Carpenter Watches upgrades this outfit even further, taking it from, well, just good … to great.

Accessories that get the job done, from the Topo Designs Town Socks to the durable Bexar Goods weekender bag, are critical in any outfit, much less a versatile pairing like this one. Top it all off and look your best with men’s grooming essentials from Bespoke Post, then call it a day. Or, actually, don’t. You’ve got plenty of places to go wearing your new favorite henley

Style Pick of the Week: Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley

Faherty Brand

The best henley to wear all winter? Perhaps, yes.

We talk often at The Style Guide about the men’s style essentials you can’t live without, like the best henley for winter. And we talk often about Faherty Brand, the West Coast-based brand that channels California cool with style for the modern man. Those two qualities come together in the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley, a premium winter style upgrade that you’re going to want to wear this weekend — and the one after that, and the one after that. The Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley is perhaps unlike any henley you’ve worn before, featuring soft 100 percent heathered cotton in a rich navy color — perfect for pairing up with slim tan chinos, a shawl collar cardigan (also from Faherty Brand, perhaps?) and your favorite leather boots.

It can be difficult — read: extremely difficult — to find a henley that works in casual style situations (like a trip to your favorite brewery) as well as in instances that more dressy. Yet, true to its name, the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley should wear just as well with slim faded jeans and a rugged shirt jacket as it does with a navy cotton blazer to the office this winter. The chambray detailing and heather fabric kick things up a notch in terms of premium quality — would you expect anything less from Faherty Brand? Surely not.

And there’s another, much more simple reason you should consider picking up the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley — every guy looks great in a henley, plain and simple. The sport-inspired roots of the silhouette, plus the raglan sleeve stitching on this particular henley, lend a rugged appeal to even the most straightforward winter outfits (think a classic chambray shirt and slim corduroy pants). The Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley is also available in three easily wearable colors, although the navy option shown above has the most inventory available. In my mind, that makes the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley the perfect pick-up for your next winter weekend outing. It’s also helpful to have a closet stocked full of warm, cozy (yet stylish!) base layers with many a chilly day ahead — this henley is an on-point layering option that looks great even when you step out of your winter parka. In short, I really don’t see any downside to picking up the  Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley — what say you? Feel free to let me know your thoughts about this piece on Twitter. Thanks for reading!
