One of three posters Hohlwein designed for the Swiss men's store PKZ. He most likely received these commissions as a result of some of his earliest posters that promoted sport clothing sold by Munich's Hermann Scherrer. This version features an unusual overprint of the store's address. DFP-III 1396 (var), Plakat Schweiz p. 15 (var), not in Hohlwein / Stuttgart.
