3 Signs of Genuine Bavarian Lederhosen

Bavarian Lederhosen

When the Bavarians first wore the Lederhosen, they had no idea this traditional clothing would go on to become a global phenomenon a few centuries later. After all, in the 18th century Lederhosen were considered as the peasant’s attire, worn by the peasants for their daily tasks and chores. It wasn’t until the Rococo period that the affluent class took notice and decided to wear a finer version of Lederhosen to emulate the lifestyle of the common man.

Yet, even after all these years the Lederhosen remain inherently Bavarian. The soul and spirit of the attire have not faded and they remain the classic Bavarian clothing. That is why everyone at Oktoberfest is so keen to be seen wearing Lederhosen and dirndl dress since that is a sure fire way of impressing the locals of Munich where the Bavarians first wore the Lederhosen and celebrated Oktoberfest as well. Not only is wearing Lederhosen a way of showing respect and appreciation of the Bavarian culture but they also look good.

So how can you tell whether the Lederhosen you have just bought are authentic Bavarian Lederhosen? There are certain signs that expose the true heritage of the Lederhosen and that’s what you can keep an eye out for when deciding whether to buy the Lederhosen or not.

Fine Embroidery on Lederhosen

Embroidery on the Lederhosen was introduced by the royal and affluent class of Germany yet it has become a fundamental and significant feature of the attire. Today, the best and most authentic Lederhosen have beautiful hand embossed embroidery on them that gives them a special feel and look. In fact, in the earlier days of Lederhosen, embroidery also signified the region from where the wearer of the outfit belonged. However now it’s more of a way to show off the style and glamour as well as the true Bavarian roots of your Lederhosen.

Traditional Lederhosen Color

The number one sign of real Lederhosen is that they are made of genuine leather, and because they are made of genuine leather, they have a certain color and feel to them. When you search for the best Lederhosen for sale online, you will see that the top sites such as the Lederhosen Store offer Lederhosen in a handful of chosen colors. That is because the colors of brown, black, tan and grey are the most popular as well as the most traditional. That is also why you will see shades of these colors throughout Oktoberfest and especially among the locals since they recognize that these colors represent the true Bavarian roots of Lederhosen.

Genuine Leather Quality of Lederhosen

Real Lederhosen are made of genuine leather and there are plenty of ways of recognizing genuine leather when you are out shopping for men’s Lederhosen. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Creases & Wrinkles

Real leather gets wrinkled and creases when squeezed and folded. This is in contrast to vinyl or processed leather, since that is processed through machine so the leather regains its original shape and the creases and wrinkles on the surface disappear after awhile. So wrinkle the Lederhosen to check whether the creases remain and if so then you can be sure it’s genuine leather.

Imperfections on Surface Grain

Genuine leather is made from the skin of animals such as cows, deer and goats. That makes the quality of the leather unique and it possesses a real skin feel. That is why genuine leather will always have small imperfections on the surface grain since it is not machine processed and the texture of the animal’s hide remains within the fabric. So always run your hand through the leather and look for imperfections in the surface grain.

These were just some of the ways you can assess whether the Lederhosen being offered is true Bavarian Lederhosen or a cheap knock off.
