Thunderbolt Baseline Modal Marly Henley: Living Comfortably

It’s definitely long sleeve weather- and the season for wool. After all, nothing says ‘winter is coming’ like putting on layers and preparing properly for the variety of conditions you’re likely to fit. One minute, it’ll be snowing and windy and the next you’ll be in a shop or a car or a subway train and need to avoid overheating. Plus, whether you’re trying to keep jogging or simply want something comfortable to wear on the plane, it’s important to dress appropriately.

The Thunderbolt Baseline Men’s Modal Marly Henley is the perfect addition to your wardrobe as temperatures drop. A blend of 60% Merino Wool and 40% Modal, this piece is well-made with fabric that was nicely stitched, knitted, dyed and finished in Australia. But the design and sewing were done right here in the USA, and you can feel the difference. Merino wool has quite a few benefits like breathability and odor resistance- plus it’s softer too.

You might not be familiar with the company, but Thunderbolt Sportswear was founded in 2010 in Portland, Oregon and offers a pretty wide lineup of outerwear including socks and even jeans. We liked the heather grey color, and if you’re a fan, there are similar light-weight short and long-sleeved t-shirt versions. The addition of modal to this one (a type of rayon) adds more flexibility and durability, plus reduces some of the itchiness that wool can often bring.

Over the past month or so, it’s held up well to repeat wears and washing, and the snaps add some ventilation, plus they are really easy to undo (and reclasp). Available now, online directly, the Thunderbolt Baseline Men’s Modal Marly Henley runs about $110, an easy gift or purchase for yourself this season.
