"O'zapft is!"

It's the end of september again, which in Munich and throughout Europe is traditionally linked with the beginning of the Oktoberfest. Just in case you are planning to go but lack an adequate set of clothes, here is a hint: As I have written before, traditional Bavarian outfitter Seisser & Cie. does a capsule collection for one of Munich's oldest department stores, Loden-Frey. Especially for the Oktoberfest, they produced a limited edition called "Wiesn-Joppe". It is beautifully handcrafted in Germany from old-stock hand-woven linen in a delicious melange of fawn, cream and chocolate tones. The inside is neatly finished and lined in a sturdy cotton drill — hand-printed, of course. Handmade buckhorn buttons and a collar in cotton reppe, woven to Seisser's specifications lend a unique, luxuious touch to this modern interpretation of a traditional garment. Get yours while you still can, stock is already low!
