Perfect Fit: Carhartt Men's Lightweight Thermal Knit Henley - Medium
on May 27, 2014
This is a very good Henley to use for layering or as a stand alone item for a cool Spring day.
The item is a soft 80% cotton and 20% polyester. The garment feels very soft on the inside
and outside. It can definitely be used as a 3 season garment.
I ordered the 'Medium' size and it is a perfect fit. It says, "Relaxed Fit" on the printed label
at the top inside of the shirt, but seems a bit tight for me. I am just shy of 6 foot tall and
weigh 195 pounds.
It is tight in the sense that it doesn't billow out and appears to be more clingy to my shape.
The fabric will give a bit with wear through out the day or if you use it more than once
between washings. It doesn't over-stretch like some fabrics where you end up looking like
you have lost weight or look disheveled.
The wash instructions recommend 'Machine wash warm' with like colors and 'Do not bleach'.
For drying you should 'Tumble dry medium, remove promptly'. I washed it a couple of times in
cold water and tumble dried it on medium and the Carhartt Henley came out real well without
problems. The cuffs and collar stayed in shape as did the rest of the shirt.
I took this on vacation for 10 days out of country and it was a pleasure to wear again and
again. It is one of those shirts that you can use in different iterations on a trip. This type of
shirt helps you pack light on trips because of its versatility. It feels good to my skin and
looks good too.
5 Stars and a hearty recommendation for this Carhartt Lightweight Thermal Henley. I would
definitely buy another.
NOTE: It has been one year now since I purchased this item and it is still in good shape
and still looks good. Not fading or other problems.
