Saxons: Germany's Tragic Fashion Misfits


Recommended Posts

I used to think that there were so few Saxon medal bars around, before re-unification, because everything was on the other side of the Iron Curtain. Then it rusted away, and STILL the medal bars did not appear.

Now I know why.

There never were many. :speechless1:

Saxons, it seems, have a long and MESSY history of Fashion Cluelessness.

I mean, what was this guy THINKING? :banger:

Here he is, circa 1905, with a brand new silver Friedrich August Medal and a FLAT Frackspange that is merely BACKWARDS, not ANGLED...

... and he was the cashier (Kassierer) of his local Veterans Group!!!

A Human Pincushion from Mittweida, circa 1914. :speechless:

Hi Rick, do you know his name? I?m afraid I could be related to him :speechless1: . My mothers family is from Mittweida, a small town in deep deep Saxony, with a high proportion of incest :wacky:

Greetings, Komtur.
