The Outside hallways are stacked with boxes, and our offices are overflowing with gear. But even we can't get our hands on every product. To fill the gaps, we often ask experts about the gear they're using. Other times, we read online reviews. 

This week, we wanted to find the best henleys. So, we went to Amazon, scanned for the highest rated henleys, then pulled our favorite reviews, which are listed below. Note: some reviews have been edited for length and clarity.

Carhartt Workwear Pocket Long-Sleeve ($20)


Great shirt and a great price. My husband loves that it has a deep and wide pocket. The material is sturdy yet soft. I've bought both the short sleeve and the long sleeve. Very nice work or casual shirt.”

“I love this shirt. It's inexpensive so I bought one of every color. I wear them as casual shirts around the house and when I sleep.”

“I hate buying clothes because it's rare that I find anything that fits the way I want. My first impressions of this shirt, however, far surpass anything I was expecting. The fit is amazing, and it didn't shrink when I washed it. I'm no fashionista, but I think the style is pretty cool. The quality feels solid and I will wear it without a T-shirt underneath so it's pretty comfy.”

“This is quickly becoming one of my favorite shirts. It shrunk only slightly in the wash, although I do think that it lost some of its 'heft' after washing. It feels thinner. Just treat it nice. Overall a really fantastic shirt.”

Nearkin Long-Sleeve Daily Linen ($25)

“This is a great linen shirt for the price. The fit is very trim, so I might suggest ordering a size up. The material isn't A+ linen. Instead, it's relatively thin, so it's just a little see-through. But the color is very nice and you can't beat the price.”
