Merz b. Schwanen's 206 Long Sleeve Henley in Lead Grey is the latest colorway for 2020. Merz spares no expense in creating one of the most popular henleys on the market. Using 100% organic cotton, these knits offer a slim silhouette that works well in all seasons of the year - cool enough as a single layer in the Spring/Summer, and warm enough for a base layer in the Fall/Winter. 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 most comfortable henley.
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. For additional information on sizing and shrinkage, see our blog post here.
Model: 6'0'' and 175 lbs. wearing size 6 | L (one size up from his regular TTS, M).
Measurement Note: Due to the irregularities characteristic of loopwheelers, there will be slight variations within each size. 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.
