All the other ones are too hard to tell. In the 50's, 60's and 70's the general silhouettes were quite similar in Europe (At least I think they were). Add to that a much larger number of bespoke tailors, all with different influences, and you'll have a hard time to tell which garment is from which country!


Yes, this round is even tougher than the last. Also I think there are regional allegiances. For example, I think Dutch cutters tend towards being closer to the German style. Cutters from places like Belgium are going to follow either French style, or be like the Dutch (Flemish is just a dialect of Dutch) and tend towards a more Germanic style. Danish journals seems to overlap in content with the German ones too. So you can see a Latin vs Germanic split in style going through Europe.

One hint for this round: don't just think of European countries! ^_^

1 - Out of the blue, I'll tell Spain, but could be many places...
2 - England ? So tempting...
3 - Japan (this one, I'm pretty sure)
4 - German or Austrian (I've never been able to tell the difference, sorry)
5 - Would not be surprised if French, but hard to tell. Sleeves are intriguing :Thinking:

1. Japanese
2. Italian
3. German
4. Dutch
5. English

I think at least one of the first two is Asian.

OK, it's look like everyone who is brave enough to have a go at guessing has done so already!

The answers to part II are as follows.

1. Japan

Very enjoyable. Sator please provide you overall commentary on the garments. Particularly interesting was Switzerland which to me looked quite Italian.

I guessed the first one because it looks similar to the suits on some of the bad guys in You Only Live Twice.

Das Schneiderhandwerk, January 1963. I am afraid no commentary is provided in the original publication so what you see is what you get. A pity perhaps.

I must say, I was surprised that nobody picked the French one. The easy fit and the shape of the shoulders was quite similar to the French coat from part I of the quiz.

Remember that Rundschau report of a tailors' congress in Scheveningen, Holland? Well, I just picked up an edition of ASZ which reported on the exact same congress. What a coincidence! They give us better resolution images of photographs from the event, although commentary is at a minimal.

1 Japan, I don’t know Why? copying European style.

2 Germany, Who else would wear this?

3 Russia. Made from cardboard!

4 Italy, A bit of style,

5 France, Copying the American Tuxedo

6 British, Hence the brolly


Correction! I withdraw from the competion, I came in after the results were shown for the first poser.
I did not see the later posts until it was too late.

Considering you didn't cheat and look at the results, you didn't do too badly :Big Grin: You got 2/6, which is more than most people!

I know this is an old thread... But if this is the thread I am thinking of, the first image used to be a caricature of each region's suit style. 

 

Does anyone have this image and would be willing to share or point me in the right direction?

 

Thank you!

I think it was just the "Italian" caricature:

They were originally posted by carpu65 in this thread.  They're missing there, as well now, but I found them on the Internet:

Thank you very much for this! The Russian and British ones show up but the other two images (Italian and French I believe) are not. Could you repost them?

I can, but I've looked at the page on a phone which is completely unconnected to this laptop, and they all show up on that.  Try refreshing the page?  Failing that, you might be able to see them here.

Yes thank you very much. They may not be showing due to my phones host file blocking them (I'll have to check that) but I was able to get them from the other link you posted :)
