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 – Revival of a Tradition.
Originally established in 1911 in the South-west German Alps, the knit-wear firm 'Merz b. Schwanen' has recently been given a new lease of life by the Berlin shirt-maker Peter Plotnicki, who now has his gentlemen's shirts and under-shirts made by them – in the same original location.
