Merz B Schwanen

1920's T-Shirt Short Sleeve


Made in 1920, this shirt still is very much in style due to its timeless design. The remarkable neckline is a real eye-catcher even today. Who knows if men in the 20s knew about the very cool look of their T-shirts?

For over a hundred years, the material blend used for this shirt was a popular substitute for the expensive Maco-cotton from Egypt. Even today, the comfortable haptics can hold its own – this shirt may be a revision, but isn’t it an original piece nonetheless?

Color: White
  • Slim, but still comfortable cut
  • Authentic yet modern design with wide neckline
  • Straight hem
  • Maximum comfort: due to circular knitting and therefore no side seams
  • 2cm extra length, as garment will shrink in the first wash
Resurrected from the ashes…almost literally, Merz B Schwann was pulled back into action when the original circular knitting looms, from the 1920's-1960's, were found, crusted with dust but completely intact in the Swabian Alps. Now used to make modern knitwear with a modern sensibility made in Germany.
