    S.A. Blouse - a Hugo Boss Manufacture?

    I recently came across this blouse and was wondering if anyone knew if this was manufactured by Hugo Boss for RZM?

    No, not by Boss.
    This D2-number belongs to Fritz Schmitz & Co, owned by Josef Köpfer at Pforzheim.

        I believe Boss made SS tunics but I don't know whether or not they made SA uniforms.

          They did.

          A Boss ad from August 1933 ("SA-, SS-, HJ unforms" / "Authorized supplier for SA and SS."):

          An ad from 1934/1935 ("Supplier for N.S.D.A.P. uniforms since 1924" / "Work-, sports- and rain clothing as well as uniforms for all formations are made in our own manufacturing company."):

              Great to see these advertisements with the name Boss. I know the first one is on Wikipedia.

              But is this Hugo Boss? In the RZM manufacturings-lists from 1938 it is named as A.Boss!
              B18/529 manufacturing of brownshirts and such; D2/60218 manufacturers for clothings.

              The mentioned number 53 I can not verify. Maybe it is in some list from the 1935 handbook.

                Yes, Wim; it's Hugo Boss. The clothing factory was founded in 1924, and its address at the time was Kronenstr. 2 in Metzingen; in 1938 it moved to the nearby Kanalstraße (just some 500 meters away, and still the site of the present-day Hugo Boss outlet).

                  I am aware of that, but why is the RZM constantly referred to A. Boss?

                    Surely an administrative error.
