How to Don a Henley: Chase Crawford in John Varvatos

Chase Crawford in John Varvatos at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Who says you need to wear a shirt and tie under a suit to look great at your next semi-formal event? Not I.

I’ve been doing this look myself and always to great acclaim.

Chase is doing it with a  single button notch lapel navy suit with satin trim paired with a short sleeve Henley and a pair of distressed black oxford shoes.

Don a Henley

A henley shirt is a collarless men’s casual wear pullover shirt with a  placket beneath the round neckline, usually having 2-5 buttons. It essentially resembles a collarless long sleeve polo shirt.

It can be made in almost any fabric, although , cotton, linen and thermals are by far the most popular.

It is called a henley  because this particular style of shirt was the traditional uniform of rowers in the English town of Henley-on-Thames.
