A henley inspired by chocolate.
We're always looking for rich, performance fabrics that don't look or feel like performance fabrics (like superheroes in disguise), and when we came across this color of 100% merino wool, we knew we'd hit the jackpot. It's a warm brown with accents of light brown and black - a neutral with depth! It reminds us of an espresso bean chocolate bar.
We took this chocolate-colored merino, which also happens to be moisture wicking, temperature regulating, and odor resistant, and let it shine in an elemental design. Not over-designing this piece was key. The v-neck shape is flattering but modest, and the buttons are bright but not distracting. We omitted traditional heavy cuffs and waistbands, and instead, chose a minimal stitch finish that allows the piece to elegantly end at the wrist and waist.
The last bonus - machine washable. This fabric is so amazing that you won't actually have to wash it often, but when you do, it can easily join your other laundry (machine wash cold, tumble dry low).
For sizing, the consensus among the superwomen in our office and in our lives is that their true size fits like a baselayer (close to the body) and those who want more room choose to size up.
