Merz b. Schwanen's 1950s Organic Cotton Loopwheel Tee in Tan is the latest colorway for Fall/Winter 2022. The 1950s tees are as classic as they come, with a slim fit and a lightweight fabric for a tee that moves as you move. This 5.5oz 100% organic cotton crew neck tee is supremely soft and has that loopwheel low-tension feel for a fit that drapes well and doesn't feel constricting. The 1950s tee has a rounded crew neckline and a triangle insert under the armpit for maximum comfort. 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) for a slim fit. Alternatively you can size up two for a more relaxed 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) for a slim fit. Expect some shrinkage after wash; model would cold wash hang dry to maintain current fit.
Measurement Note: Due to the irregularities characteristic of loopwheelers, there will be slight variations within each size (up to 0.25" variation). 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.
