Shopping in St. Georg
On Saturday, we went to St. Georg, a part of Hamburg city. It is an old quarter with small shops which are disappearing fast. But one of them is sure to have a future, that's Policke. This is where we bought a suit for J. It was a lot more crowded than you can see. And between the customers, the shop assistants slipped around like lizards, communicating just with a slight touch on the colleague's shoulder. They ask the customer what occasion the suit will be for, see at first glance which size he's got, pull out 3 or 4 suits from this pending abundance over our heads or from wall stands. J tried -- and took the first one right away. Policke is famous. The most time-saving gents' clothes shopping I can ever remember. And J looks great in this suit!
