Merz b. Schwanen 916 Army Shirt (Pale Blue)
This 1960’s short sleeve Army Shirt from German loop-wheel virtuosos, Merz b. Schwanen, is a brilliant interpretation of a heritage piece. With a standard fit, ribbed sleeves for comfort, and a slightly looser cut neck for freedom of movement, this design is practical and very easy to wear. The brand have even included a triangular gusset in the underarm for superior freedom of movement. 100% cotton has been used for the fabric, which has been woven on vintage loop-wheel knitting machines.
The company have scoured the globe to attain a vast collection of vintage loop-wheel knitting machines, and are among the last in the world to use this method. Most have moved on to modern equivalents which can churn out much more volume at a faster pace, but none have found the same quality results as these traditional machines can yield. Merz b. Schwanen go the extra mile to ensure your comfort, by employing centuries worth of experience and expertise, guaranteeing that your clothes are made to last, and will fit you better with every wear!
