About Lederhosen Suspenders
Oktoberfest is not half as much fun without a full Bavarian folk getup, which means that you should start shopping for lederhosen, lederhosen suspenders, and knee-high socks if you want to attend the famous beer tent bash. Whether you are planning to go to a local Oktoberfest-style beer fest or the real deal in Munich, wearing a pair of jeans and a T-shirt does not inspire frivolity and festivity. Although many people focus on the Lederhosen part of the getup, it is the lederhosen suspenders that make or break a good "Tracht" outfit; otherwise, you just look like you are wearing a pair of leather shorts. These suspenders are often elaborately embroidered, adding that folksy touch to the look, or you can find suspenders made of plain leather, and some modern designs incorporate interesting colors. Authentic German folk costumes can be hard to find, but sellers on eBay offer a huge selection of lederhosen suspenders and full lederhosen shorts and suspender sets. Choose between plain and embroidered looks in a wide variety of colors and sizes.
