So my Henleys and sweatshirts showed up today, amazingly 4 days after ordering them.

The Henley is the same 14oz as the tee shirt I got in natural and the construction details and different stitches for the wrists, hem, and button collar are amazing.  I never thought I'd be so into how a garment is put together, but this forum gave proven otherwise  :D

I got both a 10 and 15 ounce sweatshirt as well, the lighter of the two in something of an oatmeal/natural merle and the heavier in a dark grey.  I love my UHFs but wanted to pad out my basics a bit.  The 10z sweat will be fantastic for layering under my N1 or stormrider, and has a nice soft hand feel.  The 15oz reminds me of the XHS denim vs the 21iz.  While the 21oz is thicker the density of the XHS and the rigidity of the fabric is what makes it so interesting.  The 15oz sweat fabric is a much tighter, denser weave, and while the sweatshirt doesn't have the bulk you might expect the fabric feels bulletproof.

All in all the quality is top notch and I'm SUPER stoked on the pieces.  Ink blue and barn red Henley, two neutral sweats, more pics if anyone wants to see them outside of production shots  ;)

Pretty sick @Joberwocky I was looking at the Henley too.. I am keen on a pair of their sweatpants when I get the money.

I wear my 14 oz tee under my two favorite IH long sleeves pretty much every day. I just washed it. The only thing that sucks is that I wish this was a 2xl so I could put it in the dryer. When I get a chance I will probably buy a 2xl and keep my XL to do a screen print on and cut the neck and sleeves out of.

I could try and look up the numbers of the two IH long sleeves I love but it's easier just to take a picture.

For the record @Filthy I went 1 size up on the Henley, and it feels like a LOT more room, they may be more generously cut
