No, l don't want to forget about this. Please tell me more, educate me about cords. It's o.k to burst my bubble. Please tell me everything you know.
According to the elders, they were a respectable producer under their real name Leineweber. Like a hundred years, or even longer, ago. Now, they just use cheap contract manufacturing from North Africa etc. So not only do they not produce in Germany, they also do not own any manufacturing facilities elsewhere (as far as I know). So basically they just slap their brand on stuff they source where ever it is cheapest.
In case you still want them: Let me know and I can most likely get them to you far cheaper. As far as I remember, they the sell for at most 100-120€ but go down to about 60€ depending on brand/season/model etc. So 100-200 AUD, but not more.I checked their website again and saw no mention of made-in-Germany, so this is always a tell tale sign the clothes are manufactured in a cheap country. I then checked my cords and was shocked to see made-in-Tunisia printed in small letters. I won't be buying anymore, especially for $350 cords made in Africa. I like things made in traditional manufactured countries, ie, made-in-England, made-in-Germany, made-in-U.S.A, made-in-Australia, made-in-Scotland.
I nearly ordered custom cords or tweed trousers instead, but l thought made-in-Germany cords would be a good buy. güero , lucky you pointed it out to me. I want quality and good bang for my buck. The Brax cords are good, but l always desired even better ones, and more heavy. Instinctively l know there is better out there.
I haven't been able to figure out why some cords attract dust and fluff etc and some don't.
Shooey - I'm no expert but from what I've seen and felt (no smutty jokes please) Brisbane Moss has the nicest cords on many levels, fabric, feel, and colour.

I think it’s “a” factor in some. Most of my wide wale (low no per inch) don’t attract much fluff or any but I also have narrow wale (high no’s) that don’t either. That said, generally narrow wale does seem to be the worst at attracting stuff but I wonder if that is because they use inferior no name cord.I have a beautiful midnight blue fine wale cord jacket (looks like velvet from a distance) that is a fluff/lint/dust magnet.
I often wondered if the number of wales per inch is a factor, the finer the wale the more of a crap magnet it is.
It certainly attracted me!!!!
I have 2 3sixteen tees. The fabric is tremendous
I like moleskin. It is like a Winter version of chinos. It won’t attract comment from most, whereas corduroy may well do.I am not a fan of moleskin in trousers at all tbh. I know it has its fans and is traditional but for whatever purpose, I find a better alternative to dour moleskin.
It’s nice and beefy, though maybe I was expecting too much. I like the fit, even if it shrinks a little in the wash.
I guess I’m on a t-shirt kick now. Tellason are doing a first responder discount, so I ordered a few of theirs.
What would you pair it with? My wardrobe is very Brooks Brothers.
