Modern Trachten Waistcoats for Men
Discover Trachten waistcoats for men: suitable for every occasion
Trachten is the distinctively rugged traditional costume worn in the Alpine regions of Bavaria, Austria and Switzerland. Everyone has heard of Lederhosen with their distinctive front bib and braces. Waistcoats, however, are another important part of this historic outfit. As with all elements of Trachten, men's traditional waistcoats are cut in a classic style and made from natural fibres, such as wool, linen and leather; materials that are comfortable to wear as well as being durable and hardwearing. Historically men's gilets were practical garments for working men. They allowed the arms to move freely whilst keeping the torso warm in challenging weather conditions.
Different styles of Trachten vest
The traditional vest is one of the classics of Alpine clothing. The traditional vest and gilet are available in different materials. If you prefer the woollen version, you will love the costume knit vest made of the finest wool. If you would like a more robust and sturdy vest, a real leather vest is highly recommended as it will last a lifetime. All Kruger Trachten jackets for men are perfect for wearing with leather trousers. They are, so to speak, the icing on the cake when it comes to wearing a good-looking costume outfit. In addition, the beautiful vest is good for keeping warm in chilly weather. The knitted gilet from the costume collection is especially effective at providing a woolly warmth. You can wear a Trachten vest over a traditional shirt if it is still too cold to feel comfortable with just a T-shirt. A traditional waistcoat and the Trachten jackets are true all-rounders and promise optimal wearing comfort for a variety of occasions. One thing is for sure, the traditional Trachten vest is unlikely to remain unworn in your wardrobe.
Trachten jackets for those who like to mix it up
One of the reasons why Trachten jackets are so enduringly popular is their ability to be styled and worn in a very individual way. The entire Trachten ensemble consists of various elements that can be easily combined to create numerous different looks and the Trachten vest is a prime example. You can wear the attractive jacket with a pair of jeans and over a modern T-shirt for a weekend smart-casual look that is perfect for a night out. You could opt for a waistcoat with a satin sheen for a more formal occasion with a pair of smart trousers. Equally, the entire Trachten costume from the hat to the "Haferl-Schuhe" brogues never fails to look impressive, especially when worn at the Oktoberfest or other occasions calling for the traditional Alpine costume. It cannot be denied that the traditional gilet is an essential element, perhaps because of its striking appearance.
Choose from an extensive range of colours and styles at Kruger. The Trachten jackets are available in strong colours, such as green, scarlet, blue and grey; although earthy russets and browns are also very popular. Why not choose a waistcoat and a jacket in contrasting colours for an eclectic yet stylish look?
