General Information

Jersey Cotton Button-front Shirts and Undershirts. Seamless.

Well-known as 'Henleys' these shirts are made without side-seams in the same circular knitting process as was used in the 1850s. The model was originally used for oarsmen (hence 'Henley') and was then adapted in the 1920s for heavy labouring work. The front button-up part is of cotton. With original Merz b. Schwanen sewn-in label.

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.
