For the Gentlemen among us (and also accompanying Ladies), a Visit to what is probably the oldest family-run fashion Store Konstanz is definitely worth it. The Company was founded in 1797 As a Hat manufacturer and became the Property of the Zwicker Family In 1872. In 1972, the Hat shop became a Men’S Outfitter And is still in the Hands of the Zwicker family. Here, traditional Values are still set: Each Gentleman is advised individually, be he’s „just” a simple white Shirt or a bespoke Suit. Of course, the Range itself always offers classic and modern Styles. As a long-standing Constant Enterprise Company, there are also some Anecdotes surrounding the Men’s Outfitter. For Example, the Staff allegedly helped a German Prisoner of war escape In World War II. The Trucks from France with the Prisoners on the Loading Area stopped on their Way to a Warehouse on the Market Site and a Prisoner, originally from Constance, jumped out of the Truck and ran into the Shop. In No Time, he was attracted and equipped by the Staff and was thus able to walk out to the Back Door in a relaxed and camouflaged manner.
