Nice pics! Especially the first ones with the bowler hats, didnt know they were still used at the time.

Die Allgemeine Schneiderzeitung - what a name for a journal/newspaper! Reminds me of some Norwegian jorunals from the late 30s/early 40s i discovered in the local library some time ago. Too bad most good norwegian tailors were jewish. (They "disappeared" during the war.)

More from die Allgemeine Schneiderzeitung (15th August, 1963) The first photo comes from the cover of the journal:

Note the narrow lapels, and tie both typically 1960s (and also rather contemporary as well).

The next one originated from The Tailor & Cutter. It appears to have come from a T&C exhibition and won first prize in the class of street suits. It comes from Harrods. The Allgemeine Schneiderzeitung remarks how unusual it was that so many English exhibits were made up in patterned cloth designs.

Posted Image

Notice the complete absence of a break in the trouser hems. The socks do not show because Chelsea boots are worn.

The following also comes from the same T&C exhibition. It was made by Harold Ruback of Margate, and also comes with a waistcoat:

Posted Image

They remark that the second class award was once awarded for street suits, and to which the London tailors had no access. Apparently, there used to be a more marked difference between the London and provincial tailors, but by this time this difference has largely dissipated. Note too the elegantly pointed long toed last of the shoes (?boots). You don't see those very often these days (except on very cheap and pimpish looking junk), but if you look at all of the images in this thread they were obviously popular in the 1960s.

In the same August issue is the winner of the coveted Dandy Trophy awarded that year to this cashmere dinner suit made by the then hundred year old firm of J.C. Wells, London:

Posted Image

Notice the turn-back cuffs on the sleeves - an Edwardian detail - and the fancy waistcoat worn with a double breasted dinner jacket.

From Allgemeine Schneiderzeitung, June 1963. The model was made by Diehl, Frankfurt:

Posted Image

Note that it is one of those typically 1960s styled button two models which are basically like button threes without the bottom button. The lapel length is the same as that of a standard button three.

Also from AZS 1961. The first is a very typical 1960s button three lounge:

The following style of sports jacket with squared foreparts was also popular in this period:

From ASZ 15th August, 1966. The following pictures all originate from a Tailor & Cutter exhibition. The first button three reefer jacket comes from the London firm E.C. Squires:

This dinner jacket comes from H. Showman:

This was the prize winner in the sports jacket section (made of Terylene!):

This was made by Charles C. Whitlock from Leeds:

This one comes from the cover of the journal. It does not seem to have come from the Tailor & Cutter exhibition. It is introduced as country cloth style:

From 1962/3 - note the so-called London stock brocker's rig on the left, with flap pockets and piping:

Some very sharp tailoring here:

Here is something related - a video clip of a live concert with The Seekers. Mod fans note the typical lounge suit cuts of the period with their narrow lapels, narrow trousers, lean and clean silhouette:



Here they are in their London farewell concert. Although black and white you can see their clothes a lot more clearly:



They appear to be wearing DB reefer coats cut ventless with slightly fancy lapels that are angled a little downwards. I think I saw something like this in a '60s ASZ article (if I can find it...)

I saw a recent interview with the lead singer Judith Durham, and apparently during her years singing in the band, she always sewed her own clothes.

In this next video of their version of "The Times They Are A Changing" note the button-three show-three reefer:
