    Show Us Vintage GERMAN Suits

    .
    Vintage German (and other Northern and Eastern European) suits, sportcoats and trousers are a world unto themselves: http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showt...Ebay-for-cheap

    They need and merit their own dedicated thread.


    Herren, show us the good stuff! (Doesn't matter if it's your own suit or not.)

    Black 3 piece suit maybe 1930s. The pants were altered with a wedge in the back to gain more space and the legs were made slimmer. I try to reverse some of this.
    And yes...next time I will close the waistcoat button.

    They sure do. Finland is in Northern Europe. Suits from Scandinavia, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Hungary, Eastern Europe, and Russia are also welcomed. All we ask is that you specify which country the item was made in.

    Sporty 1930's German suit with belted-back jacket.

    - Scalloped yoke (which, according to some, gives theses suits a distinctly 'western' touch)
    - Deep box pleats in the back of the jacket
    - Half-belt sewn on to the side seams of the jacket
    - Extender tab for suspender buttons
    - Angled side pockets
    - Rear pocket with scalloped flap
    - Single forward pleats
    - Wide waistband w/o belt loops
    - Remarkably lightweight fabric, especially for a German suit



    Pretend that you owe me nothing and all the world is green.
