    Gentlemen,

    Does anyone know anything about B. Teller of Vienna? I thrifted the blue jacket in the pictures below a few days ago and thought I'd run it by you guys to see if anyone knew anything about it. I liked it and it fit well, but wasn't sure if it was worth the $6 I paid for it. I Googled the name, but didn't come up with much information. Maybe that should tell me something...

    Thanks guys

    If you like it and it fits, how can it not be worth $6?!

    But I will say this: Vienna isn't in Hungary, so Herr Teller didn't make it himself.

    Agreed!

    Vienna is in Austria correct? Made in Hungary did throw me for a loop.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So? Most Americans wear clothes made in Asia. Hungary and Austria share a border, and indeed were part of the same country until 1918.

    The fact that the labels are in English might suggest that it wasn't aimed at the domestic market, though that's not a hard-and-fast rule.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    Vienna and Budapest are about 150 miles apart.
    By super highway it's about 2 hours +.
