Merz b. Schwanen's (206) Long Sleeve Henley is arguably the most popular henley on the market due to their use of 100% organic cotton in a weight that strikes the perfect balance between thin and thick, and coming in a slim silhouette. The henley is a year-round article of clothing that works well as a base layer, or also as the primary layer during warmer months. These henleys are Merz's claim to fame and have that vintage look that will make this henley stand out among all the others. 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. Shown here with the Railcar Fine Goods Camel Flight Trousers.
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 5 | M (TTS) for comparison to wearing 6 | L here. Model prefers 6 | L, especially after accommodating for shrinkage (expect shrinkage after wash).
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.
