About Lederhosen Costumes
Scarf up that schnitzel, pour a stein of dark beer, and leap into your lederhosen costume just in time for Oktoberfest, with a little help from the friendly sellers on eBay. The fun and fanciful vintage lederhosen are actually time-honored German hiking shorts with attached suspenders designed for comfort. Each pair offers a full leather seat with a buttoned back panel, leather suspenders attached with metal buckles, and a left side pouch for your traditional dagger. Vintage lederhosen versions are most often embroidered with Bavarian edelweiss flowers or a family crest in white, red, and green. Your lederhosen socks come in nylon and polyester blends and reach just below the knee on men and mid-thigh on women. A lederhosen costume in poly-velveteen material comes with a hat in the same fabric to decorate with traditional hiking pins. Choose the women's costume style and add a white blouse, thigh-high stockings, and cute leather shoes for a sexy and silly Halloween outfit, or pick out the men's lederhosen version for dancing the polka at the German club this weekend.
