The Thursday Buy: This Billy Reid Cotton Henley is One of the Best Casual Shirts for Fall

Best men's henley for fall

Now that we’re — very nearly — into October, hopefully, you’ve got a rotation of some of the best fall style essentials all sorted out. But there’s always room for more when shopping the right way, agreed? That’s where Alabama-based menswear designer Billy Reid enters the equation. The designer is a personal favorite of your Brooklyn style writer for his modern approach to the classics, blending rugged and refined the right way — as with the Billy Reid Cotton Lous Henley, easily one of the best henleys for men on the market this fall.

The Billy Reid Sueded Cotton Louis Henley is a perfect example of what the award-winning designer does best. That approach? Using premium materials to take a tried-and-true classic like one of the best men’s henleys and ramping things up a notch in terms of quality. Billy Reid did the same thing with one of the best men’s Western shirts this season, to be sure, and the Billy Reid Louis Henley does that just as well.

Crucially, this stylish henley for men is made in Peru from 100 percent cotton, for the sort of layering potential that works underneath a classic Billy Reid shirt — or else a flannel shirt jacket or even one of the best men’s waxed jackets. The four-button placket on your new favorite henley is also a cool design touch that gives this shirt a bit more of a refined feel — you could certainly wear it with one of the best fall blazers, too.

The rest of the time though, this rugged men’s henley is essential, well-designed, very well-made and certainly worth the higher price tag (it retails for $128 at Billy Reid). Better still is the fact that one of the best henleys for men comes in a wide variety of wear-with-anything colors. You’ve just found your new favorite casual shirt for fall and winter, my friends.

The Thursday Buy: Billy Reid’s Western Shirt is Your New Favorite Fall Shirt

Best men's shirts for fall

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s crucial to have variety within your wardrobe, especially menswear essentials that blend two key ingredients at the same time. It’s something of a specialty of Billy Reid: Taking something a bit rugged and a bit classic, and merging them together seamlessly. One only need look at the Billy Reid Western Shirt to get the idea. It’s got the classic looks of a Western shirt, with just a touch of rugged design all the while, and that makes it your new favorite shirt for fall.

Trust me on that, and be sure to look around the rest of the seriously well-designed Billy Reid New Arrivals section to get some of the best menswear for fall (and beyond). The Alabama-based designer already does a standout job crafting some of the best men’s shirts, what with touches that are both refined and yet wearable just about anywhere, and the Billy Reid Western Shirt is no exception. Now, it can be tough finding Billy Reid gear on sale, but this pick-up is worth it at full price.

What makes the Billy Reid Western Shirt so essential? Well, all things Western are certainly on trend right now, yet they don’t overdo it. This blue-meets-green multi-plaid design is eye-catching yet wearable with classic picks like tan chinos or inky blue denim, and small contrasting touches like white buttons offer a touch of visually appealing style, too.

Contrast stitching helps set the Billy Reid Western Shirt apart, too. On days when you want to class up your favorite fall blazer with a unique shirting touch, or on days when you simply want to throw on a stylish, grab-and-go shirt, this investment-level option is your best bet.

Best affordable henley for men.

There’s something to be said for shopping affordable style essentials, sure, but what about when you want to amp things up a notch in an uncommon category, like the best men’s henleys? That’s where a premium American menswear designer comes into play: The new Billy Reid Melange Stripe Henley delivers on all fronts, and in a way that’s more affordable than you might think.

The best men's blazer for spring.

It feels to me like we were just talking about the best moleskin jeans for winter, among other seasonal style essentials, from the retailer in question today, the great Billy Reid out of Florence, Alabama. And yet, the time has now come to upgrade your seasonal wardrobe in a new way with some of the best spring style essentials we’ve seen yet from the famed American menswear designer. Sure, you know Billy Reid’s bestsellers by heart, I would hope: We’re talking rugged denim shirts, hard-wearing selvedge jeans and of course, the famed Billy Reid Bond Peacoat, but the designer also does a number when it comes to more refined spring menswear essentials. Take the Billy Reid Archie Jacket, one of the best blazers for men and a special standout as we move into breezy spring and summer dressing situations.

It’s the kind of blazer worth investing in, one that can be worn more casually with some of the best jeans for men — note the more laidback patch pockets — or in dressier situations with some of the best Billy Reid tailoring out there. Now, unlike on-sale menswear at Billy Reid’s Clearance Sale, this jacket is brand-new and full-price at just a shade under $600, but like most things Billy Reid, it’s worth spending a bit more to get one of the best men’s blazers.

Best casual spring blazer for men.

The design of the Billy Reid Archie Jacket is exactly what you would expect — in a great way — from a designer that knows how to toe the line between ultra-casual and ultra-versatile. The aforementioned casual patch pockets make it easy to wear the jacket casually with light wash jeans or sans tie, with a chambray shirt, as part of a full suit. It’s made from lightweight, garment-dyed 100 percent linen for a breezy feel and finish on hot spring and summer days — if you’re looking for insight on how to dress for a summer wedding, starting with the Billy Reid Archie Jacket is but one way to go.

That fabric is then garment-dyed for an even softer look and feel, right out of the box. The Billy Reid Archie Jacket could very well be one of the most comfortable blazers you’ve ever worn. It’s lined in cotton, with cotton-blend sleeve lining for an easy-on, easy-off design. It’s also unstructured and looks better when worn with a more casual edge (again, skip the tie and wear a rugged denim shirt for a change of pace). The Billy Reid Archie Jacket is finished off with premium pick (or raised) lapel and pocket stitching, a sartorial touch that separates this blazer from the pack. The fit is modern and tailored, with plenty of size options available. For my money’s worth, and yours, the Billy Reid Archie Jacket is one of the best men’s blazers out there, period. Find out for yourself now before wedding season begins in earnest.
