Care guide for The Short Sleeve Henley

May 25, 2021

You want to have a chance of passing on your great-looking lucky-charm Henley to the next generation, deserving or not, here’s how. 

Washing it

If it looks like a T-Shirt, feels like a T-Shirt but has a button-placket, then chances are it’s called a Henley. But you can still care for it as easily as a T-Shirt. 

And that means machine-washing it on a cold setting - 30°C max with similar colours. 

Before you do so, turn it inside out so that if the machine drum has a few sharp edges that try to hook up with your garment, at least the fibres on the visible side of your Henley won’t be damaged. The next level would be to use a laundry bag. 

As for laundry detergents, we suggest going for a liquid one as the powdered varieties can leave marks on dark clothes. That goes for all your clothes, not just your Henley. 

For the spin cycle, go for a max  800/900rpm setting. Any more wouldn’t dry it any quicker and only risks damaging the cotton fibres.

Drying it

However tempting it may be, avoid wringing it out by hand after the wash as this could damage the fibres.

Let it air-dry away from direct sunlight, preferably laid flat
