Recreated 1930s American men's sweatshirt from a small German company Merz B. Schwanen specializing in historic knitwear.
The sweatshirt is made on original loopwheeler machines produced in the first half of the 20th century. Such machines work many times slower than modern knitting machines, and the tension of the threads during production is much weaker. Thanks to this, the surface turns out to be more textured, softer and more authentic.
The fabric is knitted in tube-shape, so the sweatshirt has no side seams (this is how the best knitwear was produced in the first half of the 20th century).
Only organic cotton is used in the production with minimal harm to the environment. Knitted in 3 threads, weight: 12 oz.
Cotton sweatshirts first appeared in the late 1920s as American football clothing.
The idea came to footballer Benjamin Russell, who was tired of the woolen jerseys that were ubiquitous in the 1920s and earlier. He shared the idea with his father and full namesake, the owner of the sportswear factory Russell Athletics Co. The sweatshirt was designed and sewn, and already gained great popularity in the 1930s.
Today, the classic sweatshirt is also part of the sportswear style, but with clear historical references.
Paired with a cap, chinos and a shirt (without tie), the sweatshirt will fit perfectly into the most informal preppy style, based on the aesthetics of American Ivy League college students.
Also, of course, the sweatshirt can be worn as an independent item of clothing in combination with jeans and more.
Supplied in a Merz B. Schwanen branded hardboard box.
Initially, the sweatshirt is for men, but it is suitable for both men and women.
