What's a True Classic
Uni-colored pieces in timeless white, nature, blue, or black may come to mind first – and if you're looking for those, you're already in the right place. But how about mixing these classic shades? To us, easy-going stripes are just as timeless!
Having a rich history that dates back to the 19th century, the striped pattern made its way from uniform for French sailors to runways around the world and is indispensable today for everyday looks, especially during summer. In the early 1900s, maritime striped styles took the world by storm and resided a staple ever since – also for us at Merz b. Schwanen.
After the Merz b. Schwanen brand was revived in 2011, the timeless pattern belongs to the range of high-quality, sustainable basics since 2012. Whether you prefer the subtle, small stripes made on our original loopwheelers or being a bit bolder with the broader iteration, each style assures a good feeling and an easy-going yet eye-catching look. And with the pattern's roots anchored in seafaring, stripes immediately convey those easy summer vibes making them perfect for the upcoming hot days.
Just as the striped pattern itself, these good T-shirts and henleys are here to stay for summer and beyond. Timeless classics for us. How about you?
