For the untrammeled outdoorsman or urban minimalist, this is Brooklyn Tweed’s take on a perennial masculine favorite, the thermal Henley. Sawyer is worked in Shelter with a plush and textural fabric created by knitting into the row below. Set-in sleeves and seamed construction make this a long-wearing classic. Choose a tried-and-true menswear shade like Artifact or Almanac, go moody with Stormcloud, or inject some warm color into his wardrobe with Wool Socks (pictured) or Fauna.
