Merz b. Schwanen's iconic 1950s loopwheel tee in a seasonal Ruby Red. These are their lightweight, slim fitting tees that are made with 100% organic cotton that will surely make you feel good - featuring a classic rounded crew neckline and a triangle insert under the armpit. Made on original loopwheelers in Germany - one of two remaining loopwheeler operations in the world, the result is a seamless tubular fabric that will be your softest and most comfortable tee.
Note: Runs slightly small and due to shrinkage after wash, recommend sizing up one full size (exception is if you intend to wear this as an undergarment or prefer skin-tight fit). Cold wash, hang dry. Length and sleeve will shrink approximately 2" after wash. Other measurements will have about 1" shrinkage after wash, but will stretch back out to original size upon wear.
Model: 6'0'' and 175 lbs (currently closer to 165 lbs) wearing size 6 | L (one size up from his regular TTS, M) for a slim fit. After wash, will be a tad slimmer in the chest and and 1-2" shorter.
Measurement Note: Due to the irregularities characteristic of loopwheelers, there will be slight variations within each size. Accordingly, the measurements posted are general targets that we've found to be the average for each size. If you are more particular about the sizing, or know that you need one with a specific measurement within a size, feel free to email us for us to double-check measurements before purchasing. Additionally, consistent with how Merz measures their shirts, the Length measurement is taken from the highest point of the shirt (where the neckline and shoulder meet), instead of from the center of the neckline. In general, we do not find the irregularities significant enough to impact the size you should wear.
