Long-Sleeved Men’s T-Shirt Made of Jersey by Merz b. Schwanen
Popover T-Shirts and Seamless.
In the Swabian Alb, the manufacturer chooses organic cotton for these Henley shirts. They are made on old knitting machines, which master the circular knitting process to the effect that the shirts come without side seams. Therefore, Merz b. Schwanen has to set up a separate machine for each size of these shirts. A narrow rib-knit surrounds the neck, the sleeves close with wide flat-knit cuffs.
Merz b. Schwanen. A Tradition Revived.
The knitwear manufacturer Merz b. Schwanen had existed since 1911 in the Swabian Alps, once a traditional textile-producing region. In recent times, a Berliner, Peter Plotnicki, revived the tradition. Once more, the company is manufacturing shirts and sports trousers in the area – for the most part on original knitting machines dating from the 1920s or at least the 1960s. Their slow operational speeds are an advantage: They provide for the high density, characteristic structure, and substantial feel, as well as the excellent shape retention of the knitwear. A small but remarkable detail: Plotnicki has the clothing labels with the original Merz b. Schwanen logo and lettering crafted on an old weaver’s loom for jacquard ribbons.
