A men's henley shirt is an everyday staple, but its origins lie in sportswear. Named after Henley-on-Thames (a British town and the site of the Henley Royal Regatta), the shirt was traditionally worn as an undershirt until rowers made it a part of their uniform in the 19th century. Later, the style gained rugged appeal when outdoorsy types tucked it under their plaid flannels. While the basic style has remained relatively unchanged—banded collar, placket with three to five buttons—henley T-shirts now have a ton of additional options. Shop Nordstrom to stock up on short-sleeve shirts for spring and summer and long-sleeve thermal styles for fall and winter. You have your choice of fits (slim fit is the way to go if you're going to layer) and color (we love a henley in classic white). Texture is another feature to consider—the most popular choices being smooth cotton and nubby waffle knit. Whichever you prefer, you can count on Nordstrom to have the best henley shirts for every style.
