Travis Gumbs: Lately, I find myself becoming increasingly bored with the regular collared shirt. With that being said, the henley is now one of my many recent obsessions. There aren’t many items that cater to the same looks and purposes as the henley. It is an item that can find itself suitable in just about any situation. It can be worn casually to the gym or formally under a blazer. This unique shirt was actually named after the English town, Henley on Thames where the shirt was uniform for the rowers of the town.
The Henley that I am sporting is none other than The Brooklyn Circus. This Henley is a bit different from the average 3-5 button type. It buttons all the way down and has a two button fastener. What I love about this henley is its many small details. The white cuffs/ front placket, the leather tag and the red button stitching puts this shirt into a league of its own. This henley is very form-fitting so it is perfect to use as a layering piece. I would recommend a size up, I normally wear a medium and the large fits me perfectly. They are also available in blue and grey. Check them out here.

Theres not much left to say about this outfit, most of it has been showcased and talked about on here already. The glasses are a new look; I got tired of consistently wearing contacts so opted for these Tom Ford frames. The trousers have been my favorite pants for some time now and it is sad knowing that it will soon be to warm to sport them. They are actually part of a suit. I had them tailored, cropped and double cuffed for a somewhat different look than what I’m used to. I’m looking forward to seeing how this style plays out with some other pants.
