STYLE HENLEY: STYLE FEATURE November 22 2013

One of our favorite items here at Service is a classic, old fashioned henley. Lightweight jersey, thermal, or mid-weight cotton, this is a good all year round piece to have lying around. Throw it on as a sweatshirt in the Spring or under a sweater during colder seasons. A nod to vintage athletic wear, the henley takes its name from the world renowned Henley Regatta. For those of us too red blooded to know, this small, English countryside town holds the most famous annual rowing tournament in the world. Traditionally, rowers chose to wear their henleys in competition, and often the losing team would be forced to take the shirt off their backs and hand them over to their winning opponents. Not just exclusive to athletes, the henley has been a staple in the work wear wardrobe as well as military uniforms.

We put together a few takes on our favorite ways to wear a modern henley.

Hartford heather henley ($95), Obey navy stadium jacket ($78), Levi's brown cord jacket ($88)

Center, Comune stripe henley ($48), Naked & Famous slim chambray shirt ($128), Gant Rugger navy lined zip hoodie ($168)

Obey navy thermal henley ($65), Woolrich charcoal cardigan ($185), Plectrum grey tweed blazer ($295).


MEET THE SERVICE FAMILY - MATTHEW December 13 2012

Matthew, who's been at Service for a year and a half, moved to Austin from FLA when we was only one year old! When he's not working, Matthew plays soccer (It's been said he has a great soccer ass), and designs men's bags. He's been named the store's songbird; his specialties being Kate Bush and Mariah Carey. 

Where else do you shop besides Service? What? I don't have anything left over after all my purchases at Service!

Are you feeling Christmas-y? No, the weather has been too hot. The cold the last few days has helped though.

What are your favorite holiday movies? Home Alone, the Rudolph one, and Misery.

Where's your favorite place in Austin to hang out? Most days you can find me playing cribbage at Centennial Park with my friend Vance Bondurant III. (Matthew is also the store's resident comedian!).

    

Matthew is wearing:

Penguin, window plaid blazer

Gitman Vintage, long sleeve over-dye dobby

Hartford, green corduroy pants

Florsheim, wingtip boot

Nixon, mellor cream watch
