1950sLS Organic Cotton Loopwheel Long Sleeve Tee - Ruby Red
Merz b. Schwanen's 1950s Ruby Red seasonal tee in a long-sleeve cut. This is the same easy-going, lightweight and soft on the body tee that everybody loves. The seasonal Ruby Red is a deep purple-maroon color that pairs well with denim and khakis. 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 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. For additional information on sizing and shrinkage, see our blog post here.
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 even more slim.
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.
