I scanned some magazines and would like to share them with you. The first few are from "Der Schneidermeister"(The Tailor) 1938
If you like them I can scan some more.

Flo, these are some great scans! Bugsy is right: if there is more - please let us have it.
Looking at all those great suits make me a little sad, considering that not many have survived WWII. They burn so easily...
Pretend that you owe me nothing and all the world is green.
Hm yeah. But burned suits where the smallest tragedy. It is sad that the peak of mens fashion takes place in the same period as the rupture in civilisation. It takes a bitter note even to things like that. The magazine has some pages with uniforms too. Of course I leave them out. (I don't even like reenactment)
Interesting enough there are some pages that mention english fashion or english fabrics. Even then they couldn't deny the satorial influence of the british tailors on menswear.
Well here are the next scans:
I'd be interested in seeing the uniforms too. I know many officers had privately made and tailored uniforms for those that could afford to do so, as well as off-the-rack from different clothiers.

These are great. Please scan and post as many pages as you can manage.
I will add this to our big sticky thread which I encourage everyone to browse!

Workwear is the new Black.
I didn't scan these pages. I don't want to. No offense to people with an historical interest in militaria. But I don't feel well because there are some black sheep who like to dress up in uniforms for "fun". I just don't want to have anything to do with it and don't help them. Thank you for your understanding.
