Discover Merz b. Schwanen

Today there are many companies operating under venerable names that have no relation to what the brand once stood for. Merz b Schwanen is an exception. With the help of a traditional knitwear manufacturer based in the German Swabian mountains, designer Peter Plotnicki has given this hundred-year-old company a second life that honors its first.

Peter's passion for vintage supports every piece he makes. Each shirt is based on authentic vintage clothing – sometimes with slight alterations, sometimes copied exactly. But never choosing the expedient over the enduring.

The company's values run through the entire manufacturing process. All garments are made entirely in Germany, on circular knitting machines like those used in the twenties through the fifties. The shirt body is all one piece, with no side seam. Tags are woven, rather than printed. Buttons are genuine mother of pearl. If you've seen guys looking great in t-shirts in classic movies and wanted one of your own, Merz b Schwanen gives you the opportunity.
