There was once a time when America idolized the "strongman," the strapping Platonic ideal of what a gentleman should be: dashing and fearless, courteous and generously whiskered, possessing powers of physical and mental endurance ordinary men could only dream of.
Across the country, legendary strongmen like Medicine Balls McGillicuddy, Fancy Dan Fisticuffs, and The Handsome Hernia plied their trade in circuses, carnivals, and anywhere else they could test their manly mettle before a roaring crowd.
The strongman performed his feats of derring-do without modern contrivances like nutritional supplements and moisture-wicking athletic garments. All he required was an indomitable will, a well-oiled mustache, and, of course, a handsome striped shirt.
Now, Betabrand is honoring this proud tradition with an authentic Strongman Henley Shirt!
Want to start living the strongman lifestyle? Just slip on this lightweight, super-comfy garment, cancel your CrossFit membership, and embrace a heartier exercise regimen that includes:
- Clydesdale wrestling,
- Limburger-cheese sniffing,
- Eating contests (coal, knuckle sandwiches, vulcanized tires, etc.),
- Groin pull-ups.
Like all our creations, the Strongman Henley is available for a limited time — and only at Betabrand.com.
