Henley Meets Sweater in This Merino Wool Wardrobe Staple

The henley shirt is an iconic item of casual sportswear named after the famous regatta in England, where it has been worn by rowers since the 1830s. Many versions of it have been created since, but leave it to Taylor Stitch to trump them all.

We refer to the S.F.-based apparel artisans' new Hudson Sweater, a henley in all but name, elevated to an art form. To create it the brand had it woven in the finest merino wool, which delivers beautiful depth and texture without the bulk. 

It also naturally boosts temperature regulation and odor resistance, while having an exceptionally soft hand. Further enhancing the Hudson's appeal is racking stitch construction, which lends it even more textural interest, while a traditional three-button placket and ribbing at the collar, cuffs, and hem help keep the silhouette trim.

"We love the timeless look and unbeatable comfort of a classic henley," Taylor Stitch notes, "but sometimes conditions call for something a bit more substantial." The merino wool is designed to "take the bite out of even the frostiest days," come fall.

Best of all, it comes in a gorgeous walnut brown guaranteed to complement the rest of your autumnal wardrobe. So pre-order yours now.
