From time to time, you’ve simply got to keep classic menswear essentials at the forefront of your wardrobe (and your shopping search). For instance, in the heat of summer, there are ways to step out in style that are visually appealing and different from the everyday, like opting for a stylish curved hem henley as opposed to a classic crewneck tee or even a pocket T-shirt.
It’s a classic move, it’s the epitome of rugged style, and there’s one brand in particular you should trust to outfit you accordingly. That brand, of course, is Buck Mason, and if you read the blog on the regular, I’d hope you know them very well indeed.
What makes the Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley a must-buy? There’s plenty going for it, especially as we move into the hotter climes of summer. The sporting roots of the henley shirt are a nice touch, to be sure, while the button placket frames the face and can be customized with any particular number of buttons (see how Ryan Gosling wears his favorite short-sleeve henley, for instance).
Now, we can’t all be as suave as Ryan Gosling, but any time a celeb of such esteem wears a rugged style classic, it’s a move worth emulating — and the even better news is, you needn’t spend an arm and a leg on the Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley. Sure, it’s decidedly more expensive than a standard 3-pack of T-shirts at $68, but if you’ve tried out Buck Mason men’s T-shirts, you know that the quality is worth the extra investment. And with the Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley, it all starts with the fabric itself.
It’s a long-staple pima cotton for an exceptionally soft hand feel and a touch of durability, and this rugged henley is available in both classic colors (like Black, Heather Grey and Heather Oat), as well as an even softer Venice Wash option in a breezy, versatile Olive. And of course, there’s the curved hem itself — it’ll prove flattering on multiple body types — as well as the cuffed sleeves, a retro touch that also flatters your upper body and arms.
If it seems like the Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley checks all the right boxes, that’s because, well, it does. In my experience, the Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley fits exceptionally well, drapes comfortably and retains its shape, and feels super-soft to the touch. That sounds like a summer menswear essential to buy now, does it not? Get out there and shop accordingly, my friends.
