Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

A henley shirt is a collarless men's pullover shirt, characterized by a 10-centimetre-long (3.9 in) placket beneath the round neckline, usually having 2–5 buttons. It essentially resembles a collarless polo shirt. The sleeves may be either short or long, and it can be made in almost any fabric, although cotton, cotton-polyester blends, and thermals are by far the most popular. Henley shirts are generally regarded as menswear, but women's versions have appeared as well.

They were so named because this particular style of shirt was the traditional uniform of rowers in the English town of Henley-on-Thames.[citation needed] Some crews still use this style as part of their uniform.

That should do it, no other posts are needed...

I prefer his Eagles stuff to the 80's MTV solo stuff.
