Merz b. Schwanen's 215 Crew Neck Tee in Natural Indigo (Dark) is their latest run of these hand-dyed 2-thread tees with natural indigo by Blue Print Amsterdam. These have undergone extra dyes to produce a darker shade of natural indigo than previous runs. As each piece is hand-dyed, the result is a unique and irregular coloring that will fade over time.
Note: Due to the dye process, these run very small. We recommend sizing up one or two sizes (please check measurements as each size varies as the size increases). Additionally due to the hang-dry process after the hand-dyeing, the neck opening has a wider fit. Cold wash, hang dry.
Model: 6'0'' and 175 lbs. wearing size 7 | XL (two sizes up from his regular TTS, M) with a somewhat loose fit; could also take a L for a tighter fit. Expect minimal shrinkage due to the hand-dying process already removing most shrinkage.
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.
