There is not a lot known about the German fashion before the mid nineteenth century, this is for both the men and the women's fashions. It would seem that German clothes were inspired mostly by the European countries at this time. It appears from photographs that we see in history books and paintings that during the mid nineteenth century some of German boys still wore dresses and skirts, but not much else was know about their clothing. It was also noticed at this time that these clothes were beginning to change rapidly. Tunics were also still being worn during this time period. By the late nineteenth century the German fashion was still following the trend of the European countries, and so it was no surprise that the sailor suit became the most popular outfit for the young boys of Germany. Even after the turn of the twentieth century, the German clothes changed in design and styles, but the German clothes were still mostly inspired by Europe. For the older boys of this time, this meant wearing mostly jeans. Some of the younger boys may have begun to wear shorts during this period instead of skirts. Today you will find that most of Germany's clothes have a western touch to them. The boys still mostly seem to wear jeans, but the women's clothes have gone through many changes. One of the most well-known women's labels that are known to German clothes today is the Betty Barclay label. Theses labels can be found most anywhere you choose to look for German ladies fashions. Toni Dress is one of the best producers of women trousers that you can find when looking at the German fashions. Toni Dress also carries a line of matching blouses that are designed to wear especially with the trousers. German clothes have made some big changes through the centuries.
