Merz b. Schwanen Men’s Sweatshirt
Article Number 68649
The classical sweatshirt with a wide ribbed hem and little inset at the neckline and high form stability is produced on the Swabian Alb with the care that is usual there. The exceptional wearing comfort of the sweatshirt is due among other things to the use of rare original circular knitting machines produced from 1920 to 1960. They run very slowly, creating the high density, characteristic structure and grainy feel of the heavy, two-ply fabric.
Merz b. Schwanen. 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, the tradition has been revived by the firm of Peter Plotnicki, which is now manufacturing shirts and sports trousers there again – not seldom on the original circular knitting machines dating from the 1920s up through 1960. Their slow operational speeds are what make it possible to obtain the high density, the characteristic structure and substantial feel as well as the excellent shape retention of the knitwear. A small but remarkable detail: the clothing labels with the original Merz b. Schwanen logo and lettering are crafted on an old jacquard-band weaver’s loom.
