    Yes I already opnened a thread about the 1930s but I thought I would start a new one for the better clarity. I also noticed that there are no comments if I posted to much pictures at once so I will be ...much... slower....this...time.
    Others who might have german magazines from the 1940s are welcome to contribute or open a thread of their own.

    Let's start with some hunting and sports jackets 1947/48.

    I'd love a coat like the gentlemanly hunter wears in No. 348.

    I love these scans! I'm such a sucker for anything sporty/tweed-y, and there are some great examples of that here. Very nice of you to take the time to scan them for us!
     
  8. i wonder if the small diagram on the bottom right indicates an elasticated waist, as on the cream summer jacket i had (which also had a loose half-belt) ?

    I don't know. There is no additional text. There were just loose sheets. A friend bought them and lent them to me to scan and publish.

    Thank you all for the nice words. Here are some more. They show rather "normal" suits.

    I think the one on the left already looks very 50s like, doesn't it? Pictures like this let me hesitate when it comes to dating menswear.

    The lapels are not that big anymore + the left suit is closing on the lowest button

    The last few post were from 1947/48

    Now here are some suits from 1942. See the difference? I think they look far better. Just don't mention the war -.-

    I have some similar patterns for coats in my "Der Goldene Schnitt" by Lutterloh... it´s from 1949 or 1950 I guess.

    My, how they all smoke! :lol:

    The Reiterhosen are great. I never saw a pair worn without boots before, though. Looks really strange to me. Like ordinary trousers about to explode.

    Absolutely. Or like the young Schwarzenegger whose lower legs were replaced with sticks (pirate style). And who´d ride a horse wearing shoes like that?
    But some of the coats are very nice.

    Btw, I have a knitting magazine from the 50s showing a very young teenage boy smoking a cigarette. My eyes nearly popped out when I noticed it.

    haha, yes I thought so too. Or like harem pants. :eusa_doh:
    Don't google Reiterhosen. It's also a term for ver big thighs. You don't want to see this...at leats not unexpected.


    @Hepville: Yes, der goldene Schnitt. I heard about it. My girlfriend just sold a 70s version. Is it easy to work with?
    This might be interesting for people who sew (sorry, it's german):

    PS:
    We just can't wear them anymore here in germany. The ministry of silly walks told they are unfair competition and should be handeled like "doping" in other sports.
