What a type of lederhosen should i buy?
Classic knee breeches
These are a versatile option and their traditional style is very popular.
They feature classic bridge straps or braces with a braid pattern.
Men lederhosen shorts
The legs of these shorts are a mid-thigh length and are perfect for summer and the Oktoberfest - which actually starts in September! They are also usually worn with suspenders.
All three variants are available in a simple design but also with elaborate decorations and a range of colours. The trouser legs, for example, are usually decorated with detailed embroidery. These embroidery elements can have a reference to a club or a country or simply traditional themes, such as alpine flowers.
What should I look for when buying a traditional pair of Lederhosen?
OK, so you've decided you need a pair of leather pants. But how do you know what size to order and what else to look for? The main thing to remember is that tight is good! When you try on a pair of lederhosen for the first time, they should be really tights. Super, butt-crunchingly tight! This is because the leather from which they are made is a natural product and will considerably expand over time because of your body heat and constant movement, especially in the leg and buttocks. The only area that should not quite as wide is the waistband. Nevertheless, the men's leather pants in the waistband can be individually adjusted by a lacing on the back. We take care at our shops that all of our customers will find the perfect matching trousers.
How to care for your leather pants for men
Over time, leather trousers acquire a certain something - an aroma, a weathered appearance, a patina of indefinable charm. It is something that cannot be bought but has to be earned. Lederhosen do not mind if you have a few stains after a grand visit to Wiesn, if you have sweated like a pig, or if one or two scratches are visible on the leather. If you are really bothered, you can clean individual spots. For this purpose, it is recommended to work the stain with a leather brush or a leather eraser. As an alternative, you can also work out the stain with sparkling water and a gentle, rotating movement. If you feel that they should be thoroughly cleaned, we recommend using a professional leather cleaning service. The washing machine is taboo! If you feel they are a bit whiffy, giving them an airing often suffices. However, they are intended to be manly workwear, and frankly, a bit of grease and wear and tear adds to the genuine appearance of the article.
How to style your leather pants
There are a few rules for wearing lederhosen if you want to cut a dashing figure in them. Traditionally, the lederhosen for men is usually combined with a shirt, socks and and the famous Haferlschuhe.
To complete the outfit, a costume shirt and the warm traditional jacket with horn buttons is also suitable. However, the key piece of every men's traditional costumes outfit has to be the genuine leather pants for men. Matching traditional stockings "Loferl" and a hat complete the outfit.
