The Janker is a traditional Bavarian / Austrian Jacket / Cardigan, which is often made of Loden or Wool. It is worn by men in"societys for traditional costumes", in german called "Trachtenverein". The Bavarian and Austrian people wear them also for "Schützenfeste" (Celebrations with their popular Rifle Clubs) and some of them wear them in their everyday life, though i have to say that the people in munich mostly differ from the people outside. These traditional costumes became very popular sometime, and since that point the quality is getting worse. They have some other traditional costumes which are interesting, like the "Kotzen" or other Loden-Coats.

I have a hard on for Bogner. Pun intended. Most of my outerwear and skiing gear is from Willy Bogner.

 

I have more Hugo Boss items than I care to admit. Their suits, while being fused just fit me OTR. Also, their jeans and cashmere/wool sweaters, are slim cut and have extra long sleeves.

Yes me too. I have jeans and linen pants by Brax and the fit is fantastic.

While in Europe I expected Hugo Boss to be priced much lower based on proximity. This was not the case, and when I asked a local (Canadian) SA why, he said that the quality is different than in North America as they are constructed in different locations. Therefore the HB available in Europe is better quality. Anyone know if there is any truth to this or was the SA full of it?

Why do so many in here say that Jil Sander is a bad brand?

WUNDERKIND is German designer Wolfgang Joop's (of JOOP! clothing) couture label that he launched with womenswear in 2004 and menswear in 2010. Wunderkind production was halted in 2010. The prices were simply over the top and his investors backed out. The men's dandy-style collection in pastel colors was not everyone's taste either. The quality had better been superior - at 3000 euros for a suit. Joop presented a new WUNDERKIND women's fall/winter 2012/13 collection in early May 2012. There is no mention of menswear on the web site anymore.

As for JIL SANDER: Ms. Sander returned to the label she founded 40 years ago in early 2012. Her first collection will be presented at the Milan menswear shows on June 23, 2012. Critics said, Raf Simons did a good job at Jil Sander but I didn't care for triangular metal pendants on jackets, cow-hide style overcoats or rainbow-color striped wool sweaters - to pick the not so cool examples IMHO... I have a dark blue wool and mohair overcoat from Jil Sander, though, that I consider one of my favorite winter coats. Also a few great shirts, light summer pants and a pair of beige suede loafers that I've had for years, and I still want one of their beige or dark blue ultra-light summer blazers.
