Merz b. Schwanen
Circular Knit Black Sweatshirt
Poised to resurrect this venerable knitwear company, his first collection came to fruition just in time for the 100th anniversary in 2011. Each garment is 100% made in Germany, from the textiles to the woven labels and production. With the backing of the original family, Merz b. Schwanen has transformed from one of Germany's best kept secrets into one of the only remaining circular knitting brands in the world and we're thrilled to bring it to our clients.
Often when an old, storied company is resurrected the new era seems to have little in common with the previous company, such is not the case with Merz b. Schwanen. While many pieces are designed from actual vintage samples (tweaked here or there), each reinterpretation is created in respect to the rich heritage of the brand. We like how this sweatshirt harkens back to the "golden age" of clothing, with it's lack of side seams and woven V inserts at the collar and underarm gussets. This circular knit jersey cloth is unbeatable and only gets better with wear. It will take just about anything you throw it's way, passing each wardrobe test with flying colors.
Tailored Fit - Cut on the trimmer side, we recommend sizing up if a more traditional fit is desired.
Ribbed collar, cuffs and bottom
