Loden-Frey shopping since 1842, Munich

Imagine a family shop in clothing that exists already 170 years. If you stay this long in business, you must be unique and provide quality. The Loden-Frey shop is located at the Frauenkirche Dom in a nice building with a covered walking gallery. It was late in the evening in the store was closed but I could not avoid taking some pictures. The glass entrance door is decorated with puppets as door handles. The shop windows are very colourful and the clothing is special, a combination between classic dress code and the playfulness of Bavaria. The question is however, would I wear a lederhosen with a jacket?

Beeld je een familiewinkel in die al 170 jaar bestaat. Als je zaak zo lang open kan blijven, moet je wel uniek zijn en kwaliteit leveren. De Loden-Frey winkel is gelegen aan de Frauenkirche kathedraal, in een mooi gebouw met overdekte wandelgalerij. Het was reeds laat in de avond maar ik kon het niet nalaten enkele foto’s te nemen. De glazen inkomdeur is versierd met beeldjes als handvatten. De etalages zijn zeer kleurrijk en de kledij is uniek, een combinatie van klassieke kledij met het speelse van Bayeren. De vraag is echter, zie je mij al lopen in een lederhosen met klassiek vestje.?

  2. Interesting photos of this shop! I love those puppet door handles, but don't like the suit and tie with wrinkled shorts!! One would sweat on the top and be cool on the bottom, needs to be more cohesive!

  11. What a fascinating looking store that is! I also love doing photos of store windows when they are special like these are. Last summer, got up in the middle of the night to go out and photograph some shops when there were no people around. Have a lovely day and thank you for sharing these . Looks like a great place to shop if I ever get to Germany..

  12. I didn't realize those figures were part of the door handle until I read the comments. It looks like they are selling winter fashion although I don't know about the one with the shorts. Maybe it is reserved for warmer spring weather.
