Thanks, BnT! I ordered some Ts (213 Army shirt) of the same material last week but began to worry they might be too thin. Excited how they'll turn out.

It's important to remember that with Merz there are multiple weights of the same shirts/sweaters. They produce everything from lightweight tees/sweaters to heavier versions.  You can normally tell what you're buying by the price because many retailers don't realize this and just order the cheaper tees for their store and when putting up the product page don't state which version it is.

^ this is good info.  Thin T's when you prefer a slim fit is a really bad look.

Just for the record: the 213 Army Tees arrived last week but unfortunately I had to send them back as the fitted sleeves were surprisingly not as comfy as I envisioned them to be plus the body length was already borderline short on me (note these are unwashed and will definitely shrink). It was already the longest model and the biggest size :'(. The loop wheeled two-thread fabric is amazing, though, not too thick with a great haptic. Overall the quality is top-notch.

I have the Sleeve Problem a lot, I like Merz B but I had at least three Tees here that fitted me all the way but the Sleeves were that tight that they restricted the Bloodflow in my Arms and I had to send them back.

I will admit the sleeve are snug, but a warm iron is your friend with these tees - got half a size back after shrink

Here is my Henley. It’s an XXL and while snug, stretches pretty easily. The buttons are absolutely beautiful as is the collar. Don’t be afraid to size up a bit as they do shrink a good amount.



FYI, my Crew Neck Sweat from above is an XL but not washed/soaked yet. I specifically Wanted the short, tight, ultra vintage cut like the “old” Buzz sweats

^ Henley looks great.  I've got pretty skinny arms so that hasn't been my issue, just a chest that is a hair tight.  I agree with @Appfaff, sizing up in these is not a bad idea.  I'll most likely be getting more Merz in the future but will go up a size.

Cool Outfit @BloodnThunder the Jacket is Amazing.

Does anybody own one of the Hoodies, the grey one is tempting especially with the nice RiRi Zipper ?

I just bought 2 1950s t-shirts in xxl. First impressions are honestly, they feel cheap. The neck is not meant to stretch out, but very obviously does. They don't hold their shape well. I have to say I'm really disappointed. I am a larger guy too and the thinner material is unforgiving.

Sadly IH loopwheel have seems on xxl, so I might have to invest in heavier weight TFH

I think their 1950s Ts are their cheapest 1-threaded ones and you can obviously tell. Merz' 2-threaded stuff is more expensive but feels definitely great, though. It has a wonderful weight and texture.

I can only speak in my Merz stuff from self Edge which is their heavyweight stuff and its ultra luxurious to say the least.
