Complete costumes

The complete costume is composed of two parts: a jacket and trousers. In the jacket, there are two inside pockets, each about 13 cm wide and 16 cm long. The jacket has buttons; the trousors have an integrated cloth belt.

The rags which make up the Labé-Minsch costume are generally all of the same size: They're stitched into the costume so that a surface of 8x8 cm is visible. The upper part of each rag (beyond the 8 cm limit) is covered by the next higher row and sown onto the basic (raw) costume.

Complete costumes are available in 5 size categories (see measures, section "Order form").

Jackets

Jackets can be ordered either as part of a complete costume, or as separate products.

Dresses

Dresses are available in three sizes: 36/38 (waist: 110 cm), 40 (waist: 115 cm) et 42/44 (waist: 120 cm). The colour combinations are varied to suit the specific wishes of the customer.

Trousers

Trousers can also be ordered either as part of a complete costume, or as separate products. Whenever they are part of a complete costume, care is taken to ensure that the colours of the rags used in the jacket and in the trousers are in general harmony with each other i.e. the type of cloth used in the jacket is at least in part also used in the trousers. For example, the trousers below are part of a complete costume, of which the rags used in the jacket part are the same or similar. Together, they constitute a complete costume with colours in the yellow and orange colour range.

 

Coats

Coats are a new product, available in four size categories: S, M, L and XL. They have two inside pockets, each about 13 cm wide and 16 cm long). The coat is closed by means of buttons on the front side.

Coats are available in a variety of colour combinations: There are two-colour costumes as well as multi-colour costumes. The second category comes in a number of variations, e.g. in the red, pink, yellow-orange and blue colour ranges.

Jackets with collar

The jacket with collar is available in five sizes: S, M, L, XL and XXL. Many colour combinations are available: From the two-colour version to the multi-coloured one, the latter in many colour ranges (see above), each one adapted to the specific wishes of the customer.

Caps

Labé-Minsch Carnival caps are reversible i.e. the inside can be turned outward and vice versa. They are generally composed of two different fabrics: one above, the other below. The colours of the top and bottom parts are complementary, but never identical. Often, the fabric pattern is large in one part and small in the other. The cap is longer in front than in back.
