This year, attend Oktoberfest in style with the Bavarian Man Costume. Included in the set are lederhosen shorts and a front button white short sleeve shirt. The brown lederhosen fall just above the knee and they feature decorative embroidery on both the pants and the suspenders. Lederhosen are from the alpine area, particularly Bavaria, of Germany, and some styles date back to the Middle Ages. They were worn mostly by peasants and later in history by the working class because they were sturdy and could be worn during manual labor. In the 18th century, it became stylish for the upper class to wear Lederhosen. Today, most men wear jeans instead of lederhosen, but this traditional style can still be seen at special events. After Oktoberfest is over, you can use this versatile costume on Halloween! Does not included socks or shoes.
