228VF.40 - 8.6oz Loopwheeled Henley Vintage Washed Oversized Fit - Army
Merz b. Schwanen - 8.6oz Loopwheeled Henley Vintage Washed Oversized Fit - Army
Merz has been on our list for quite some time. Can you believe they've been around for 111 years? That's currently our oldest brand! They've stuck around because they do something quite incredible with basics. They stand behind the idea that basics can be something to get excited about. So they create the best and put their iconic branding on just the tags. We're so happy to introduce this German line to our store. In the same way we correlate Japanese production to meticulous attention to detail, we correlate German production to impeccable engineering. We hope you love these super-engineered basics!
Vintage times two! While fabric made on their original loopwheelers in Germany itself has a unique vintage feel, Merz takes it even a step further! How? These authentically made pieces have undergone a special pigment dying process: thanks to this particular treatment, these pieces receive an exceptional vintage optic.
Their henleys have the best buttons and clock in at a weight that is just heavy enough to let you know it's there, but not something you have to think about before you slip it on in the morning. These have the wonderful aesthetic of a visible horizontal loopwheeled line throughout. It's super subtle, so you'll have to look closely. They're so soft that these feel like a henley you've been wearing for years. The vintage wash tends to do that!

Fit Notes: Even those these are also stated as an oversized fit, we didn't necessarily figure that to be true. Shop owner Tommy was easily able to fit his normal North American size medium in this. We do expect a good amount of natural stretch to occur in these based on what we've seen in the waffle henley. We recommend either sticking with your true size or sizing up once if you're unsure. Tommy is 5'10," 165lbs, with a 40" chest, and typically wears a North American M, and a Japanese L.
The only thing that could've improved this serge western was a new color. This one was originally called Mocha Brown, which we think is very suitable. It's this rich color that suits this now iconic shirt. It used to be that we rarely saw green from Iron Heart, but now green is a staple. So, we've been super stoked to see khakis and browns rearing their pretty heads. You can't go wrong with the western cut, unless you don't size up, as it has some absolutely gorgeous details. We love the yokes and Permex buttons the most on these beauties.
We felt very lucky to be a part of this limited edition "Year of the Rabbit" release. These were right up our alley with special little touches throughout. They really went above and beyond with the theme, starting with the rabbit mosaic. You have to look close, but you'll see little guys in an arctic colorway forming the GTB stripes. The hair on the patch is a really nice touch as well (it's not rabbit). There's custom details interworked throughout, including printed "Year of the Rabbit" pocket bags and jacquard liner. The interior is bonkers. There is of course all of Momo's standard, but incredible details. But, the capper has to be the peaking Rabbit laser engraved on the front coin pocket. It was a total surprise to us, and a happy one at that. The fabric is also an icon. The 13oz really shines with this one-wash treatment and is full of micro hairs and texture. We're so excited to be one of only two stores in all of the US even offering this denim! It's a rare one, that's for sure - we were only allowed to buy 10 pairs.
We've been looking for something a little wider than the narrow taper, and we've found just that. This Wide Straight, also known as the classic straight is just the thing to break you out of your slim jeans. We started our initial run of Momotaro with 16oz denim due to the texture, but again and again, received requests for the 15.7oz. This is Momo's iconic "Vintage Label" denim. The lore about its fading potential is heard far and wide
For our initial run with this denim, we went with black battle stripes to make the denim a little more subtle. Due to requests, we had to bring back the black stripe in this 15.7oz fabric. We've seen fades on these down the line, and we can't bring ourselves to move on from the black. It'll be something we're always drawn to. The black will sluff off more naturally with the denim, and from what we now know, will stand out nicely against a heavily faded pair. This is crocking that makes perfect sense.
These are truly gobsmacking. They knocked us off our feet. It's everything that gets us and all of you excited. We've had so many requests for Sashiko fabric in the last few months and this might just be the perfect pair. Our signature black battle stripes have been added to this pair making them a rarity in the denim hunter world. You'll also notice copper rivets as this is the standard 5-pocket model...it's just a basket weave fabric vs twill. They also piped the busted outseam to give them a super finished look when cuffed. We can't overstate how gorgeous these are and we hope they stick around long enough for you to snag a pair.
We've been on the hunt for a good turtle neck for years, and my goodness did we find it. When we tried this on, we forgot it was pima. We knew something was different about the fabric but didn't check the contents until this very moment when we started writing the copy. That's what we find when we're dealing with a fabric that is high in quality - you feel the difference right away. We've seen pima come down the line in many forms, but nothing this thick with the ability to have a stand-neck collar. It's our favorite cotton for a reason. It's luxurious and so soft to the skin. We think these are an incredible addition to any wardrobe needing a shake-up and a staple at the same time.
A knit-like high-neck shirt made from high-quality Spanish Pima cotton. Although the fabric is tightly packed, it is thinner than a sweatshirt and features the smoothness and softness of the thread, making it comfortable to wear. It is easy to match with various styles of outerwear and can be used as an inner layer in autumn and winter. The cotton material makes it difficult for static electricity to occur and can be washed at home.
