UNIFORM | The Henley

With the temps cooling down, even in LA, I was thinking about my favorite fall layer, the henley. I just assumed its history had roots in undergarments (like the t-shirt), but it turns out the menswear staple was actually named the henley because it was the traditional uniform of rowers in the small English town of Henley-on-Thames. Who knew? Henley-on-Thames hosts the annual Henley Royal Regatta which has been producing fashionable uniforms and spectator ensembles (and tomboy style inspiration) since 1839.

P.S. My favorite henley.
