*Brothers Lewandowski Bruno, Max and David, were royal merchants to the Bavarian court for lingerie, with branches in Berlin, Amsterdam and Munich. The business, then owned by Gerhard and Alfred Lewandowski (now buried in Munich), was taken over by the Nazis, due to the Jewish background of the Lewandowskis, who had to flee from Germany. One small shop still remains to this day on Sendlingerstr. 62 in Munich, however it is not owned by any family member, nor does it produce the original Lewandowski lingerie.
