                Modern Lederhosen for Wiesn 2022

                A brief history of the Lederhosen

                Lederhosen are short leather trousers for men that are a traditional part of Bavarian, Swiss, and Austrian costume often referred to as 'Trachten'. Lederhosen are perhaps the most well-known part of the costume, apart from the dirndl. They are very close fitting and made from a robust and durable leather. Today, we associate Trachten Lederhosen with cultural events such as the Oktoberfest but they were once viewed as a practical garment for labouring men who lived and worked in a mountainous environment. The leather was warm and easy to keep clean; the fact that the legs ended above the knee permitted freedom of movement - and the fact that less material was required meant that they were an economical option. The exact age of Trachten leather shorts is unknown but we know that they were commonly worn by the end of the sixteenth century. Interest in Trachten surged in the 1880s when many clubs were founded in Munich and other cities devoted to preserving traditional styles.

                Modern Trachten

                Today, the traditional Alpine costume is enjoying another resurgence in popularity - and the knee length breeches are seen as of particular cultural importance. They have been an essential part of the Oktoberfest outfit for many years, but are now increasingly being worn as everyday wear. Choosing the right pair can be tricky because there are so many variants and designs for traditional shirts. However, many men now opt to wear a pair of knee shirts with a modern hoodie or t-shirt - combining elements of Trachten with casual men's wear looks stylish.
