You guys are hilarious.

Found a (what feels like) cashmere suit that is canvassed yesterday with no labels except 2 noting it was made in West Germany and had bemberg lining and a bag of buttons in the pocket from a company that closed in '84.

My first instinct was Boss but I'm not sure they'd use cashmere, bemberg, or canvass, even back then. Were there any high end suit makers or companies making high end suits in West Germany?

Fake.

Anyone recognize the maker. The jacket is half canvassed with surgeon cuffs but no tags. Just the lining. Fits well
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





This one looks to say Y/A but could be coincidence lol I can't tell what these things on the liner are

I should mention that I liked it and it's for me, not to flip, I was just curious who was making high end suits there at that time. The fabric is beautiful, charcoal nailhead with a purple and blue overcheck.

Sorry, I assumed you were flipping. But there are no "major" makers from West Germany (besides that one factory that made Boss).
