The Davidow - Chanel Connection

Last week I came across some fantastic wool tweed fabric that had a Davidow tag on it. Davidow was a major maker of suits and coats in the mid 20th century. What is so interesting about the company is that they specialized in Chanel copies. I've written two posts on my blog, The Vintage Traveler, about the Chanel - Davidow connection. Now if I can only find a Chanel ad featuring a suit made from my fabric, I'd be one happy collector!
