The Henley was first introduced around the turn of the 19th century as an alternative for English rowers who were tired of sweating it out in their thick-cut collared undershirts. Since that time, the iconic three-button design has largely remained unchanged; however, as it’s become increasingly popular throughout mainstream menswear, it’s gone from a piece of functional performance apparel to a staple for the fashion-forward.

Where most of the competition has strayed from its roots, lululemon’s 5 Year Basic Henley is one that keeps with tradition — it’s made to move. That’s because, in addition to a super-soft Pima cotton and Lyocell blend, it also utilizes Lycra fiber for its added stretch and shape retention properties. In practice, this means that it’s as handsome as it is hard-wearing — a marked departure from other offerings that are little more than aesthetic imitators. And when you consider that the 5-year basic Henley comes with a super-comfortable classic fit, it makes for an option that’s ideal for any occasion, regardless of whether you’re wearing it for work or for play. You can buy it from lululemon in Heathered Black and Heathered Grey for $68.
