Merz b. Schwanen Two Tone Grey Sweater

In January 2011 Merz b. Schwanen presented their first new collection at the International fashion fair Bread and Butter in Berlin. Their idea to make authentic worker’s clothes from the 1920’s, ’30’s and ’40’s was an instant hit. They gave the classic models a slightly modern twist for the best fitting.

The brand all started when the founders, Peter Plotnicki and Gitta Plotnicki, bought an old workers shirt from 1911 on a flea market. A flea market vendor from Berlin brought the henley style undershirt at one of the last hosiery companies called Merz b. Schwanen. The company was founded in 1911 by Balthazar Merz and employed more than 2,000 workers over several decades. Peter and Gitta decided to continue the family runned business. And with big success! Since then the Merz b. Schwanen brand contains t-shirts, sweatshirts, underwear, socks and accessoires. One of their highlights is this two tone grey sweater.

Every Jeans Deserves A Good Grey Sweater

Merz b. Schwanen develop authentic sweats in several basic and also bright colours. With long sleeves and short sleeves. Every pair of jeans deserves a good grey sweater. It’s a classic and always a perfect match with your outfit. This grey Merz b. Schwanen two tone sweater is a killer item with a twist. It has a contrasting colour with grey melange and nature melange.

The grey crewneck sweater has a triangular patch made of rib ware on the front of the neckline. It has a durable waistband made of rib ware on hem and sleeves. For maximum comfort they added a triangular patch under the arms. The fabric of the sweat feels gentle to the skin and is free of chemical additives. It’s eco friendly, which means no industrial pre-wash. The Merz b. Schwanen grey sweater is completely made in Germany.merz b. schwanen longjohn
