I bet you are thinking that a Lederhosen is something you would use to water your outdoor plants but you would be wrong.
The word Lederhosen comes from Germany and is translated into English as “Leder = Leather” and “Hosen = Trousers”. So the definition of Lederhosen is Leather Trousers or Leather Pants.
The one thing that really sets these pants or shorts off, and makes them different from the normal pants you see men wear every day, is the H shaped suspenders and the fancy embroidery. If you are still having problems visualizing what they look like you may remember seeing them worn in the classic movie “The Sound of Music”.
These types of pants or shorts are traditionally worn by men for German events such as Folk Festivals, Beer Gardens and of course Oktoberfest! originally Lederhosen were worn for hard physical work because the material was more durable and easier to clean. Today you will find them at Bavarian Trachten dances, parties, club meetings, weddings and more. You will also find your waiter decked out in this gear when you go to a German restaurant.
Lederhosen is a symbol of pride in Bavaria. Sort of like a kilt in Scotland or a cowboy hat in Texas but you don’t have to live in Bavaria to wear these with pride!
We sell our new lederhosen as a set. You will receive two high-quality pieces with your purchase. A pair of Lederhosen and a matching set of suspenders.
