I really like a lot of these outfits. Thanks.

I keep thinking about those sewing machine ads. If they aren't off subject too much, I would love to see them.

Merry Christmas, and thank you for letting home sewers join along with the Cutters and the Tailors.

And for posting pictures like these.

What ever happened to the bespoke skiing outfit? RTW ones fit me like a potato sack. The trouble is sourcing the right fabric for the purpose. However, if you can make woollen cloths mayonnaise proof these days, why not use them? The maker Isaia have a cloth they call "Aquaspider" that is waterproofed. I wonder if something like this could be used for skiing garments?

I suspect they cost a fortune back in those days too. The difference was people's willingness to invest this sort of quality.

We have some sking outfits made by Obermeyer that are 50 wool 50 nylon and 5 spandex. They were made in Japan. Mine fits me like a dream, is very warm, waterproof and is my favorite. I'm thinking of making my next outfit. I can't find what I like in my area.

That was wrongly translated. The German term is Kostüm, describing an outfit consisting of a jacket and a skirt.
There also exists the term "Hosenkostüm", which simply describes a woman's suit.

"Nur der ist Meister seiner Kunst, der immer sucht, das Gute zu verbessern und niemals glaubt, das Beste schon zu haben."
"Only he is a master of his art who always seeks to improve the good and never believes to have the best already"

The word Kostüm comes from the French word for a "suit" - "un costume".

The term 'costume' for a ladies suit or tailored dress and jacket was current in Britain well into the sixties. I remember my mother buying a 'costume' for a wedding we attended as a family. It consisted of a neatly fitted dress and a swing coat in matching light weight boucle tweed.

Are we being two nations divided by a common language again, or is this a generation thing? :He He:

Oh, and all this 50's stuff... :drool:

I've looked through many of these, and they always literally bring a tear to my eye. (I wish I were kidding, but I'm not!) Thanks for sharing!
