‘Leder’ means leather and ‘Hosen’ means pants, so the term lederhosen translates to leather pants. The Lederhosen is a traditional male attire that emerged in the Alpine regions of Germany and Austria. They are usually worn with high socks all the way up to the knees, or sometimes you will see them worn with legwarmer like bands around the calves. These pants were worn by peasants and were made to be sturdy so that it could withstand rigorous labour. They were also worn in many regions of Europe by riders and hunters. In the south of Germany, the style developed to have a front drop flap. This style became popular in France and became known as the Bavarian style.

A distinct quality of the Lederhosen is the intricate embroidery that is found on the trousers and suspenders. The embroidery or insignia can mark different regions of a country that people belonged to. Many people living in small villages owned several pairs of Lederhosen for different occasions, such as weddings and other festive occasions. Over time, these have been replaced by blue jeans for everyday life and work. The Lederhosen is mostly worn at cultural events or festivals such as Oktoberfest or to a Biergarten.

To top off the Lederhosen costume, the hardcore Bavarian wears a hat called the Gamsbart made from the hair of a chamois. These can be quite expensive if you’re not buying the costume version! An interesting fact about the Lederhosen is that they are never washed. As filthy as this sounds, not washing the Lederhosen keeps the leather moist. Fancy smelling your pants after that! As long as your lovely maiden in a Dirndl doesn’t have to cop a smell.
