    Great ensemble! Love the color and texture coordination with the corduroy jacket, vest, tie and pocket square, with Fall / Winter season colors to compliment (burgundy vest and brownish shoes). Great stuff!

    Funny thing is: in west Germany, where I come from, "Berliner" means this doughnut-like pastry. But in Berlin, this doughnut-like pastry is called "Pfannkuchen" which in the rest of Germany is, and literally means, "pancake". "Berliner Pfannkuchen" as in the wikipedia article: I have never heard that term before. Seriously.


    Yeah yeah, I stood in the corner for a while after I realized.

    And in Holland, "Berliner" means some kind of sausage to eat with your bread. The Berliner Berliner is called "Berliner Bol" [​IMG]
    Yeah, it's Sunday...

    Ironically enough, the only place where I've ever seen "berliners" sold under that name was in Madrid (and they were enormous - about twice the diameter of the one in the spoilered picture). In America, the term used to describe such a pastry is a "jelly doughnut".

    I prefer the term KRAPFEN over Berliner or Pfannkuchen. It's just so angry.

    I am shocked that Germans are unable to get the jelly in the middle of the doughnut. It's so...un-German.

    A plaid grey jacket with a deep purple tie is a dapper look for the Winter Season! Especially given that you hail from Wolverine State!
