choose between lederhosen and bundhosen

Men don’t usually put a lot of thought into their outfits but its a different story when it comes to Lederhosen and Bundhosen. They can harbor interest from even the most indifferent of gentlemen and create a sense of excitement for them, none more so than the German Lederhosen.

Most commonly worn to Oktoberfest every year, the Lederhosen have a long and rich history. They are so famous in modern day Bavaria, in fact, that they are worn to weddings, festivals, and other special occasions. There is also a longer length Lederhosen known as the Bundhosen which is worn by many locals. Let’s take a look at what the difference is between the two and how you can choose either one depending on your needs.

What’s the difference between Lederhosen and Bundhosen

Lederhosen literally translate to leather trousers. They are leather breeches that are worn as traditional garments in German-speaking countries. Lederhosen are either shorter than the knee or knee length leather trousers that are worn at special occasions, most commonly Oktoberfest. However, Bavarians also wear Lederhosen to weddings, festivals and special gatherings as well.

The Bundhosen are simply the same garment which reaches below the knee. They have grown in popularity in recent times because of modern-day fashion, however, they were also worn by some men during the time of Old Bavaria. So the main difference between Lederhosen and Bundhosen is the length, with Lederhosen being shorter than the Bundhosen.

When are you going to wear it

You have to take the season into account when deciding between Lederhosen and Bundhosen. Since Bundhosen are longer so they are more suitable if you’re attending an event during winter in Bavaria. The main event in Munich however, is Oktoberfest which rolls around in late September during autumn.

You will see men wearing both Lederhosen and Bundhosen to Oktoberfest since the weather is quite pleasant. Generally, men’s Lederhosen is more commonly worn as compared to Bundhosen since it is the original attire the Bavarians wore to the first Oktoberfest celebrations. Yet, it comes down to your own personal taste just as long you wear good quality Lederhosen or Bundhosen.

Which one suits your taste

Of course, everyone has their own taste in clothing. Some men prefer to wear full-length trousers whereas others favor shorts. The Lederhosen is ideal for those who like to feel the breeze on their shins and have well-toned legs to show off. But if you need clothing that gives you more cover below the knee then Bundhosen is the way to go. You can check out the popular collection of Lederhosen and Bundhosen here.
