Another summer sartorial retrospective – this time in Dresden. Yes, that’s right, in former East Germany the desire to dress well is alive and well 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and some 65 years after the deadly firebombing of the city during World War II. Time heals as the saying goes. Dresden has prospered and done quite well in the new Germany.
In the Hotel Taschenbergpalais (highly recommended by the way and situated right in the historic city center near the River Elbe), I found this window display by a high end men’s and women’s retailer, Prüssing & Köll.
Hmm, those shoes below have a familiar look about them. Could they be English?
They are indeed of English manufacture. Judging from the printed delivery time and pricing, they are probably made by Edward Green for the store.
One more thing. If you like German mechanical watches (Glashütte etc.), there are a number of shops in Dresden that offer reasonably priced automatics, new and used.
