Really Nice Loopwheeled T-Shirts from Merz B. Schwanen

Over the past four years Merz B. Schwanen has slowly turned into many of our clients’ favorite basics brand. The combination of attention to detail, breadth of textile styles, and various colors and fibers has turned Merz into a basics powerhouse. Cotton garments are made of organic Greek cotton then loopwheeled on vintage knitting machines in Germany and finished with vintage-correct construction and trim. Everything from the knitting to the cutting and sewing is done in-house at Merz. The attention to detail in their tees, sweaters, and underwear is impressive and we're excited to be able to expand what we stock from them.

We have fresh runs of their loopwheeled t-shirts and underwear along with two special releases.

We now have their new Sea Island cotton t-shirts, these are so special they come with serial numbered hologram tags. We believe Merz B. Schwanen have made the world’s first Sea Island cotton loopwheeled t-shirt. If you’re a fiber geek or need to enter the final level of the nicest and softest blank t-shirt you’ve ever seen, this is for you. These t-shirts are wild soft and are available now in white or black.

Lastly we have a fresh run of their mulesing-free fine merino wool loopwheeled tees, available in black or natural. All these items are available now across all of our stores.

Flat Head Flannels, Denim Shirts, and Cordovan Small Wallets

This week we have two new shirts from Flat Head and a fresh run of all six styles of their Shinki shell cordovan small wallets.

First up we have a Self Edge exclusive flannel! This fabric part of Flat Head’s heavy winter flannel series and is made of Flat Head’s heaviest selvedge flannel which have been double brushed on the interior for comfort and wind resistance. These shirts are finished with real mother-of-pearl inlayed buttons and double-needle and chainstitch construction.

Next up we have an item they've been making with small tweaks every year for over twenty years, a snap buttoned selvedge denim shirt. These things are made of a pure-indigo dyed 10oz Japanese selvedge denim and finished with real mother-of-pearl snap buttons.

We also have Flat Head's Shinki Tannery shell cordovan small wallets in three styles and two colors. All six wallets are hand-cut, hand-sewn, pigskin lined, and made in-house in Flat Head’s own leather craft workshop in Nagano, Japan.

You can find all these items now at all stores and online.

Thanks for coming by SESF and glad you like the jeans! I believe it was Dan and Nicholas you were working with.

We unfortunately don't have any slim tapered black jeans which have a high rise, but we do have indigo and we definitely have slim tapered with a medium rise in black.

Hoodies, Shirts, Jackets, Jeans, & Wallets from Iron Heart

This week we have a large delivery from Iron Heart with loopwheeled hoodies, military serge snap shirts, Type III jackets made of split steer cowhide, straight leg jeans in 21oz indigo and black, and folding calf leather wallets in two colors.

Iron Heart’s very nice loopwheeled hoodies are now available in both zip-up and pull-over styles. Both are built to last, are super warm and soft, and have a true loopwheeled fleece which has a nice “grain” to it from the loopwheeling processing.

The split steer rough-out modified Type III jacket is back! You’ve never felt a heavy leather this butter soft to the touch. These are a modified Type III pattern with hand pockets done up in a super soft split cowhide.

The Iron Heart Military Serge shirt in olive is also back. These are made of an Iron Heart developed 13oz military serge fabric and finished with black Permex IH branded snap buttons, felled inner seams, and single, double, and triple needle construction. They're great for all season wear, are rugged, and the fabric has a unique hand-feel.

All these items along with a full restock of straight leg jeans in indigo and black and folding calf leather wallets in black or tan are available now at all stores.

Studio D'Artisan Summer Collection of Shirts & Jeans

This week we have two new shirts and a limited edition jean from Studio D'Artisan, and the second release from O△X.

O△X is a new line designed and produced by Studio D’Artisan and we’re proud to be the only retailer outside of Japan stocking it. Their second release is the Junk Wax Era chambray. Vintage indigo-dyed kimono fabrics from over 100 years ago are cut into triangles then sewn together to create a new pattern. This "quilt" is then applied to the chambray before the entire garment is hard washed to lighten the indigo shade of the chambray and kimono fabric.

We also have new short sleeve 10oz hickory stripe shirts which are finished with custom SDA steel buttons and are available in navy or gray.

Lastly we have the Fox Fibre jeans. These are limited edition pair of jeans woven on vintage Japanese G3 denim looms using 100% organic Foxfibre, a cotton fiber developed by Sally Fox.

All these items can be found at all stores and online now.

Is there a 3sixteen specific thread? I thought there was but can’t find it, but the SF search function is still terrible so I probably just missed it.
Anyway, if I can ask this question here:
How do you all find their hoodies and truckers in terms of sizing? Looking around it seems like they run small, and measurements indicate that, especially for the type 3.
Im looking for a trucker and a hoodie and so far like the 3sixteen ones the most at that price range, and the stonewashed type 3 is more my speed. So I’m just trying to determine if it’s best to size up now since ideally I’d just want to machine wash and line dry

We find most of 3sixteen's clothing runs fairly true to size compared to most of the other brands we sell. We recommend using the size charts provided to determine your size, or if you'd rather not use the size charts you can start by going one size up from your usual size in most American brands.
