Hen·ley ( \ˈhen-lē\)

A henley shirt is a collarless men’s casual wear pullover shirt characterized by a 4-6 inch long placket- that long part with the beneath the round neckline, usually having 2-5 buttons. It essentially resembles a collarless polo shirt. The sleeves may be either short or long sleeve, and it can be made in almost any fabric, although cotton , and cotton- polyester blends, and thermals are by far the most popular. The name comes from a particular style of shirt that was the traditional uniform of rowers in the English town of Henley-on-Thames.
