Trachten Waistcoats


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?
