The History of the Henley.

The story all starts in a English town Henley-on-Thames. 60 miles east of London there this town is located next to the river Thames. A small town with a lot of water is sure to have a rowing team. The uniform of the traditional rowing team was a crew neck knit shirt with a banded collar and a multi-button placket that extends from the neck to the middle of the chest. It’s characterized by a placket beneath the round neckline, usually having 2 to 5 buttons. Another way to look at the shirt is a polo shirt with no collar. The sleeves may be either short or long, and it can be made in almost any fabric. The most popular fabrics are cotton, cotton-polyester blends and thermals.

Originated from rowing nowadays other sport brands also carry the shirt in their product range.This season different clubs and national teams have a Lykot as tenue. This season one of the biggest soccer clubs Real Madrid and the German squad are playing in a adidas henly shirt. And in the picture below you’ll see the French squad in a Nike henly collar shirt. One of the advantages of the Henley shirt is that the masculinity of a person comes out. So with soccer players wearing the shirt they are already on a advantage when stepping on the pitch. It brings fear to the other squad.
