As someone from Germany I can confirm this, all the cool kids back then wore Hugo Boss. @ze germans on this board: Did anyone read Endstufe, by chance?

FAZ vom 03. April 2004 Die Romanhandlung setzt 1941 ein, als Hitler - vor dem Rußlandfeldzug - auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Macht steht. Damals in den "Roaring Forties" konnte man scheinbar allein mit einer schwarzen Uniform die Frauen um den Finger wickeln: "Das holde Blond bevorzugt den schwarzen Ritter", wie der Personalchef des SS-Hygiene-Instituts feststellt, bevor er dem frisch eingestellten Chemiker Karl Fußmann den Berechtigungsschein für die "todschicke", von Hugo Boss geschneiderte Uniform ausstellt. Doch Fußmann macht von dieser "Lizenz zum blonden Geschlecht" wenig Gebrauch, da er mit der brünetten Johanna verlobt ist, einer Operettensängerin und Modenärrin, die mit "Kraft durch Freude"-Dampfern tourt und von der teutonischen "Wende zum Wams" fasziniert ist. Ach, SS-Mann müßte man gewesen sein? (...) Heikel an Kunkels Roman ist nicht allein der Stoff als solcher und auch nicht die beschränkte Perspektive. Daß man auch aus der Innensicht über das Dritte Reich einen gelungenen Roman schreiben kann, hat etwa Marcel Beyer mit "Flughunde" bewiesen. Problematisch am ersten, in Deutschland spielenden Teil ist eher, daß Kunkel Stoff und Form zu verwechseln scheint. Das Pornographische ist nur sichtbarster Ausdruck der Lebensphilosophie einer dekadenten Kaste, die im Vögeln statt im Krieg das Heil erblickt, deren einziges Nachschubproblem den Kokainvorrat betrifft, während sie in der "Lumpihütte" am Obersalzberg eine orgiastische "Zickenverlade" steigen läßt - "Sieg Geil" hat Lotte auf ihr Hinterteil tätowiert. Indem er sich den verschwitzten Kasino-Ton seiner Protagonisten zu eigen macht und die Trash-Ästhetik als Freibrief für "Naturszenen" aller Art versteht, wird in seinem Roman das Dritte Reich selbst zur Liebhabervorführung: Feiern, bis der SS-Arzt kommt? weiter:FAZ.net

The novel is an act of 1941, when Hitler was - before the Russian campaign - at the height of his power. Back in the "Roaring Forties" could seemingly handle alone in a black uniform of the women around her finger: "The lovely blonde prefers the black knight", as the staff chief of the SS Hygiene Institute finds, before the newly recruited chemist Karl Fußmann the voucher for the "snazzy", by Hugo Boss issuing tailored uniform. But Fußmann made of this "license to blonde sex" little use, since he is married to the brunette Johanna, an operetta singer and Modenärrin with "strength through joy" steamers touring and the Teutonic "turn of the doublet" fascinated. Oh, SS-man would have to have been? (...) Sensitive to Kunkel's novel is not only the substance itself and not the limited perspective. That one can also write from the inside view on the Third Reich a successful novel, has about Marcel Beyer proved with "flying foxes". The problem on the first, in Germany playing part is rather that Kunkel matter and form seems to be confused. The pornographic is only visible expression of the life philosophy of a decadent caste that sees in birds held in the war of salvation, whose only supply problem the cocaine supply concerns, while they can get into the "Lumpihütte" on the Obersalzberg an orgiastic "Zickenverlade" - "Sieg Geil" Lotte has tattooed on her buttocks. By rising to the sound of his protagonists sweaty casino ownership and the trash aesthetic as carte blanche for "Nature Scenes" of all kinds understand will come in his novel The Third Reich itself to lovers show: celebration, until the SS doctor? read on, my dear
"...an operetta singer and Modenärrin with "strength through joy" steamers touring and the Teutonic "turn of the doublet" fascinated." Now you know. Cheers N

I hear the Pope is a Catholic on top of being a former Nazi. I mean, one thing at a time, please!

Can anyone name a major German company trading today (that has been in continuous existence for 80 years) that did not help the Nazi war effort? That would be comment worthy.

In a rightful fit of indignation I just tossed my Braun coffee grinder and Krup coffee maker out the window.
