If Spider-Man is a plain white tee: wholesome, classic, and safe; then Venom is a henley: bold, rugged, and rebellious. Essentially, if you didn’t already pick it up from my Marvel-themed analogy, the henley is the badass brother of the classic t-shirt, and Canadian brand 18 Waits makes a mean one.
Constructed from a hemp-cotton blend, 18 Waits’ long-sleeve henley features a four-button front placket, slightly longer than your average two or three-button henley, some subtle seam details for an added bit of interest, and a relaxed fit with some slightly structured cuffed sleeves.
Dress it up, dress it down, the 18 Waits’ henley – expertly crafted in Canada – is the perfect alternative to the classic t-shirt as we transition into the colder months. Available in navy and black colorways, 18 Waits’ henleys are OEKO TEX certified, one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. If that wasn’t enough to tempt you into trying a henley, Bruce Lee wore one. Forget Ryan Gosling and Daniel Craig, Bruce freaking Lee. What more could you want?
