What's the hand like on the Henleys? I have pretty sensitive skin been looking for something soft for spring
I have the 206 Henley and it’s soft. It’s two ply so it’s thick but overly. I don’t find it scratchy at all.

Can anyone speak to the length of the Merz 346 sweatshirts? I'm interested in the sage but, when double-checking measurements against other color iterations of the same product number, I'm seeing drastically different measurements between different retailers--anywhere between 26.5 (too short) to 30 (just great). I've also noticed previous posts (like @Patrick R's) that indicate these do run on the short side and tend to shrink an inch on washing. I do own the henleys and find them to be sufficiently long in size 7/XL, but are the sweatshirts out of bounds for anyone 6'2" and above?
I'm 6'2" as well and I'm wearing a 7/XL here - had been washed a few times

Hey guys, is there any a Carrara drop this season?
Sorry if this question’s been asked before!

I have the large (6) in the winter color and the length from back of the neck is 27.5.
I washed and hung dry 1 time. I don’t remember the original length.
I have the Henley and it runs way longer than the sweatshirt.

You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for the help.

And yep, I can third the super-comfiness of the henleys. They're the reason I'm really looking forward to trying out a sweatshirt.

I’ve stayed away from the henleys because of how short the sweatshirt was for me. It was from the first season NMWA carried the brand, but a 7 didn’t consistently cover my waistband. It was short short. Clearly Greg’s is much longer and would have worked fine for me.

It's odd. I've had 2 or 3 Merz sweatshirts over the years and they've worked fine for me in that size.

The henleys are super long.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
