It is, in fact, a very German name.
Thanks a ton for the info - fascinating stuff!
The guy I go to charges a lot, but is, I think, the best around here. I could save a bit if I took simple jobs elsewhere, but I use him for everything because making a living as a tailor these days in a small-ish town isn't easy when most folks wear disposable crap. His shop has been around for nearly 50 years, and I don't want him to go out of business. Because most everything I buy is thrifted, he gets a lot of business from me, and the loyalty is rewarded. When I need a ripped seam re-sewn or something similarly easy, it's free, and when I need something in a rush, he accommodates me. He warns me off if I ask him to do something stupid, and I've learned a lot of stuff. Think twice before altering poplin, always dry clean corduroy. The one time I tried some place else, they screwed it up, and so lesson learned.
Your situation may be entirely different, probably is, but when I see folks posting about whether a tailor is charging too much, I think about my experiences and the old adage about when you buy the best, you only cry once.
Looks like regular duck hunter camo. A spin off of the WWII HBT camo but not double sided. Produced commercially from the mid 60's-late 80's. Though it was commercially produced, it was also used in Vietnam after the fact that US military advisers figured out the OD green jungle fatigues weren't cutting it.
Welp, I'll get lost in the post-Andro shuffle (awesome haul, BTW), but my meager finds. Burned some time in a GW yesterday, got the itch, so went out today.
