  • I love them as well I like polo shirt open throat even better than the collarless. Last year Vince made a great one in cashmere , I found it at The Line
    This year I found one in Italian cotton at Communitie in
    Amagansett .It is on sale and in their warehouse !. Get a small – they are black , navy and ivory . Really perfect .

  • Sundance catalogue has some that look good with velvet trim around the neckline.

  • Hi Brooke- there is a really nice ribbed-knit polo at La Garconne.

  • for a cheap alternative, H&M men’s usually offers them, though I don’t know if they do ribbed. I find their men’s tees to be great since they’re longer in the torso, and can easily be tucked in.

  • Try Marie France Van Damme’s ribbed Tunisian T: very chic !

  • H&M has a great one in- $39.99– in black and natural.

  • I LOVE the great waffle Henleys at LL Bean. At $39 you can have one in every color. They’re not ribbed but they fit just like the one Jackie is wearing.

  • I just ordered the waffle henley that Margaret recommended from LL Bean. Black and paper white. I’ll report back – they look really good and the right price.

  • I can’t offer a source, but I have to ask ~ why do you want one? I never thought it was particularly stylish, even on Jackie O. It just screams ‘man’s long underwear from old western movies.’ !!! : )))

  • Ron Galella pursuing Jackie. Why do his images make us want to know more? Hemen Biarritz. For men. The best henley’s.

  • I just purchased the La Garconne polo based on your recommendation. I’m a sucker for a good long sleeved polo. I find them to be universally flattering. Thank you!! Cheers!

  • Popped in the LLBean near my home and tried on the Waffle Knit Henley. The quality is excellent. .. and it looks very CHIC on! Got both paperwhite and black. Thank you Preston for the inspiration. Love your blog! Margaret and Kathy thank you for the recommendation!
