A well-dressed past: Jil Sander on Hamburg

Designer Jil Sander on growing up in Hamburg:

I was born in Hamburg, a trading city with a big port. It's very English because it's close to London. The saying is that when it's raining in London, they put up their umbrellas in Hamburg. And so the men are very gentlemanly, with proper tailored clothes. Even in my young age, I saw very nicely dressed men. (GQ Feb 2011)
