Great finds Fastuni! Showing off the best of German styling right there - never thought I'd say this, but between the two I think the western yoke suits the belt back aesthetic even better than the 'normal' one.
The scalopped yokes and saddles, so popular in German tailoring, elements often associated with "Western style" in the US, are frequent features also of the alpine Trachten style. They were more common also in Anglo tailoring before WW1.
It has a certain playfulness and ornamental quality to it IMO.
The arches may also reflect a somewhat architectural take on tailoring.
Which reminds me of this 1930s German ad:
"The own home everyone needs at most!
I construct suits with wonderful facades for all gentlemen. My suits can look dignified like a court building, flirtatious like a pleasure palace or solid, durable and indestructible like the Chinese Wall. I am confident to satisfy every gentlemen with my clothes-architecture, which accomodates every need and possibility. I ask to honor me with your orders."
Actually, I should also post a few additions here,
but unfortunately time is always quite short at the moment.
Therefore, here is only a hat photo already posted this week,
but it shows at least the rudiments of my German 30s 3-piece
in grey herringbone with great peaked lapels:
I promise you, Wayne, that more pictures will follow.
But for now, here's just another chest shot with today's 2-piece suit
- proabely early 30s in charcoal with turquoise green and textured stripes
and - like the last one - with great peak lapels
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
