The Henley might be the most commonly used name for this type of garment, typified by the three button collar. Names like grand dad, or button-up shirt talk about the one and same piece. This garment has been worn for over a century as an under garment and outer layer as well. The 1927 Henley by Pike Brothers is lightweight to fulfill exactly these to purposes. They fit very well under all the various Pike Brothers shirts, but can be easily worn as an outer layer in summer as well. This version is lighter compared to the brushed and thicker Utility Shirts. Real coconut buttons and a rounded hem complete the authentic appearance. We also have this shirt in ecru and a short sleeved ecru version which you can find here.

Pike Brothers was founded in 1930 by brother George and Joseph Pike. Their small yet high-quality clothing store was located in the famous Portobello Road, Notting Hill, in the heart of London. Custom clothing for men was their specialty. During the Second World War they produced uniforms for American military forces. This was the time when American soldiers came over to England. Pike Brothers managed to combine the best materials with European craftsmanship and create the unmistakable clothing you see today. They simply struck a brilliant balance between American workwear and European expertise. A legacy that defines Pick Brothers to this very day.
Pike Brothers distinguishes itself by respecting and celebrating the original functionality of its clothing instead of simply aiming for superficial succes. All clothing is made in Europe and produced the old-fashioned way. Pure craftsmanship and the best materials add up to this stylish and timeless clothing. Pike Brothers is that perfect combination of style and functionality.
