(Fritz @ April 21 2005,08:08) The Roetzel book actually strikes me as very German. It does not have a lot of German products in it, except for this shirtmaker's picture I can't think of any right now. But there is a certain part of the German upper-middle class that is drawn to the Anglo look that Roetzel proposes. Tweed coats, Barbour jackets, English shoes etc. are very popular among them. If you can imagine such a thing as German preppies, that's the kind of people I am talking about. They like Polo Ralph Lauren, too. Not English per se, but drawing on the look.
Very good point, but you forget the Timberland boat shoes in the description of the standard upper-class german citizen . Germans seem to admire England and its way of life. See the iconic "Rosamunde Pilcher" movies. All the implements of the english gentleman are represented (barbour, tweed jackets, huge castles). Only the cars remains german.
Nice avatar. Jon.

Those shoes are so old man.  Where's the Frankenstein cut & stitch on the vamp?
For that, we might need a slender flashlight.
