I think it's the same in Isreal, though I can't be certain of that.

And I'd buy tickets to see that.

In his memoirs, Omar Sharif recounts a moment during the filming of the Nazi murder mystery The Night of the Generals, in which he plays a German army inspector (in cahoots with the French resistance) who investigates a series of prostitute murders committed by amerikanninja, I mean Peter O'Toole. Omar wrote that during a break in the filming in Germany, he wanted a coffee and strolled into a cafe forgetting to change out of his army regalia, including a swastika armband. The reaction was of utmost horror. Pretty dumb thing to do.

I hope you are not licking your chops too aggressively for not being able to purchase such a superior model in your country, as you might make a muscle stain in your tongue.


I just saw something very similar in Ralph Lauren today (different collar though). It looked vaguely Germanic/Austrian. Not for me, and I did rather wonder who'd buy them... I guess there's a market for everything. I also saw a navy riding jacket with a red contrast collar that tempted me mightily...

It would be for amusement to see Ralph Lauren also to follow with a special recipe Beutelwurst sold at the holidays or better to be given for a snack after spending 200 euro. I'll say with a cynically heart, I doubt if the suits you saw were from a German production as the price than could easily exceed 3000 euro with the RL namesake on a garment tailored to the standard. The same is true of sausage as I did snack on one in Central park two Christmas's ago only after did my American friend advise that they may of been made out of the meat of rodents. I don't doubt that it was a cruel joke but his point wasn't lost on me as the next day was mostly spent with the porcelain tome in my hotel room.

I remember seeing one or two of Ralph’s “Tracht”-style coats in the store, maybe a year ago.

If you’ve come across them in your favourite haunt (Bicester Village - an outlet shopping centre) the answer is obvious:
there is no market at full price. (I wonder how far down, they'll have to go.)

dude, you already sound like a huge sausage expert to me, maybe you should talk about this hobby with our other two resident sausage experts at the forum.
One being a made guy who sells wonderful stuff that falls off the truck and the other a hysterical dame.

I had to look it up myself, I have never heard of it before. And if the picture and description is anything to go by, I can't say that I regret it....

Neither have I. Seems to be a speciality of the "Neue Bundesländer" (the former GDR).

hey, don't knock Bicester, they have nice stuff too.

Lots of people (me included) were trying on the Tract coats and chuckling as they looked in the mirror. They were still fairly pricey (in the hundreds I think). I didn't see anyone buying them....

My point exactly. The fact that Germans proudly waved the flag during the world cup was actually a newsworthy phenomenn.

"There's definitely a big change in Germany ," says Auyla, who has black, red and gold roses in her hair.

"You can see it everywhere, there are a lot of commentators talking about it. Even the police - they are told they should be neutral and not fly it but some of them are," she says.

Her friend Bettina Lower adds: "It was impossible to show the flag in the last world championships (in 1974) because it was still the story of the war. Now it's easier."

The past four weeks of the just-concluded World Cup soccer tournament has changed Germany's self-perception. Not only did the German team cruise into third place -- beyond almost everyone's expectations -- to end up with the bronze medal, but German patriotism has experienced a surprising and remarkably peaceful resurrection.

Behaviour which would be dismissed as typical World Cup-itus elsewhere raises eyebrows and sparks debate in Germany where national pride is still a touchy subject.

I do find the all football hysteria disturbing ridiculous.....All these millions of Chinese made little stupid flags on cars.....

In England ,some people had 4 flags on each doors floating around....The all thing was absolutely ridiculous...We 're far from Savile row ,believe me...
Such a lack of taste must be punished by death....

I do not propose wearing a Trachtenanzug raving with a flag of any nation but to see such a regal suit on a football terrace would be a welcomed sight to my bored eyes. It wouldn't matter for the least to my sensibility if the wearer was from the rising Nanjing or the sinking Savile Row.

Would there be a corresponding penalty for snobbery, or are you proposing an absolute Sartocracy?
