Hope you've all been well! Not a lot of new activity from me, but managed a new addition to the collection.
I believe a 30s Brüder Bohms made for the French market. Luckily this gamble paid off and fits me :)
edit: I think very similar to one Steve got from Panos bar the backbow
Thanks gents - reaffirming to see both strands of thought which went through my head. The 11 March 1944 certainly was something I considered, but I haven't found much evidence one way or the other. From a more contextual perspective, Steve's thesis around the geopolitical situation was pushing...
Pretty exciting find for me - sourced locally in New Zealand, a P.C Habig sold in the Polish market. Tagged as a 56 but fits loose so perfect for my 57.5 head!
My feeling is towards 30s/40s. Unfortunately can't make out the stamp on the sweat.
Latest acquisition. Early 20s 3 piece in a chocolate with teal and burgundy stripes. I'm in love with the suiting, subtle peak lapels and the flat fronted waistcoat - plus fish tails rather than bunny ears
Thanks Steve - I haven't really left, just cut back on the hat purchases a lot! This one was too good to pass though :)
Wonderful! I just mentioned it to him and he said he can't quite recall - oh to have so many hats pass my hands as to forget something like this eh?
Great seeing all of your latest finds - I'm practically green with envy!
A recent purchase (seller's photos) of a soft-felt Bruder Bohm. I also recieved two pre-war Huckels that I need to get around to photographing - one a tagged 56 which luckily fits my 57 size head, the other sadly, a 54.
