Berlin style: Holiday displays on Kurfürstendamm

In addition to visiting the prosperous northern German city of Hamburg, I spent some time in Berlin, specifically along Kurfürstendamm, one of the main retail corridors of this historic city. The other primary retail area is along Friedrichstraße in the Mitte district.

Due the width of the sidewalks on the Ku'damm, shoppers are able to walk through two kinds of displays - the actual storefront windows and self-standing kiosks situated closer to the curb.

With a little bit of help from Roetzel's iGentleman app and some random walking, I came across bespoke tailor Volkmar Arnulf (cool name but I digress) and RTW/MTO shoes including Ludwig Reiter, Budapester, Stephan Pöschk and Oliver Gray.

Just to be correct:

The name of the very fine tailor is Volkmar Arnulf ;-)

Great, thanks for the correction. My German language capability is on life support these days. I thought Arnulf was his first name. Still think it would make a cool name ;)
