Merz b. Schwanen's 215 Tee in White is a sturdy good-looking tee, made out of 100% pure organic cotton with a nice slim fit. The 215 Tee is similar to the 1950s tee but in a heavier fabric that has a solid hand to it. As usual with Merz knits, it features a round 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 most comfortable tee.
Note: Recommend sizing up one full size due to shrinkage after wash. Note that Merz 215 tees feature a slightly wider neck than most other tees, but we don't consider these a wide neck t-shirt (there's just no struggle to get it up and over your head). Cold wash, hang dry. For additional information on sizing and shrinkage, see our blog post here. To learn about the fit comparison between 1940s, 215, and 2s14, see our post here.
Model: Model is 6'0'' and 175 lbs. wearing size 6 | L (one size up from his regular TTS, M). 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.
