What to Consider When Purchasing Men’s Lederhosen

Men’s Lederhosen

Shopping for Lederhosen can be an extremely daunting prospect if you don’t know how to go about it. After all, wearing the right Lederhosen to Oktoberfest can define your experience there and you don’t want it to be a bad one. Locals of Munich put a lot of importance in the Lederhosen worn to Oktoberfest since it shows the understanding and respect the tourists have for the Bavarian culture.

So before you go out to buy your Lederhosen for this year’s Oktoberfest, there are probably a few things you should know beforehand. We have prepared a brief list of things to consider before purchasing Lederhosen either online or at a retail store.

Lederhosen Leather Quality

By far the most important thing to consider when purchasing Lederhosen for sale is the quality of the leather. Lederhosen made with poor quality leather cannot be redeemed in any way since they lack the essential ingredient which makes Lederhosen unique. It is especially difficult to pinpoint the quality of leather when purchasing Lederhosen online since you cannot feel the product before purchase.

Brown-Lederhosen

However, when you purchase Lederhosen from the Lederhosen Store, we ensure that you are satisfied with the product before and after purchase. Our Lederhosen are made with the finest quality cowhide and will set you apart at this year’s Oktoberfest. However, despite the claims you must be able to identify genuine leather from machine made leather on your own. Luckily, there are a few things you can look for such as:

  • Genuine leather has imperfections on the surface since it is made from the skin of animals and each animal’s skin is as unique as the animal itself.
  • Genuine leather has the ability to absorb minute quantities of water, so drip some water on the Lederhosen to test if it is made with real leather.
  • The edges of Lederhosen made with genuine leather are always frayed and never smooth. Smooth edges indicate a machine finish on the product.

Lederhosen Color & Shades

There are a few particular colors and shades that suit men’s Lederhosen. These colors include grey, black, brown and tan and all the variations in their shades. When you shop for Lederhosen at the Lederhosen Store, you can find beautiful shades of wood brown and charcoal black that provide the perfect mix of a traditional and classy look. However, there are some colors you should steer clear of which mostly include bright colors such as blue, red or orange. You will mostly see red color Lederhosen being worn by young boys.

Length of the Lederhosen

The traditional German Lederhosen is always shorter than the knee. This is the Trachten style of Bavaria and it dates back to the 18th century. The longer version of the Lederhosen which reaches to the knee and below is known as the Bundhosen. Although both Lederhosen and Bundhosen are perfectly acceptable to wear to Oktoberfest, it comes down to your own personal taste and how you feel about wearing them.

Lederhosen Embroidery Style

The modern Lederhosen are almost always embroidered but you can also find plain Lederhosen as well.  When purchasing Lederhosen with embroidery however, you must keep in mind that men’s authentic Lederhosen do not have floral embroidery or even extravagantly colored embroidery. The best embroidered Lederhosen have traditional Bavarian embroidery on them and are considered stylish in that way.

These are the main aspects of Lederhosen you should focus on whenever you purchase Lederhosen. Now you are ready to buy the best Lederhosen for yourself and make the most of this year’s Oktoberfest.
