Merz b. Schwanen

Merz B Schwanen 346 Sweatshirt: Ink Blue


The classic cotton crew-neck sweatshirt is a casual wardrobe staple that has stood the test of time, relatively unchanged since its debut in the early 1930’s. Merz B Schwanen’s ‘346’ sweatshirt is a close comparison to the sweatshirts that were made when quality and longevity were at the forefront of manufacturing. Constructed entirely in Germany, using original loop-wheel machines, the sweatshirts are made using a quality 3-thread, 100% pure organic-cotton, which weighs in at a perfect 12oz. Due to the loop-wheel manufacturing method, there are no side seams, resulting in a supremely comfortable sweatshirt. Along with the organic cotton, triangular inserts on the neckline and underarms, the ‘346' is guaranteed to feel like a sweatshirt you’ve been wearing for years.

Also available in Army Green and Grey Melange

After their closure years later, current MD, Peter Plotnicki, stumbled upon the aging factory and its vintage machinery after a bread crumb trail that all started with a special flea market-find. Plotnicki brought the factory back to life, and the Merz family, inspir...
