Short Lederhosen for men – great choice and not just for the Oktoberfest

Lederhosen, the so-called ‘Krachlederne’ (leather shorts) are a very important part of the Bavarian outfit. Lederhosen for men are available either in short length or knee-length. Back in the day the knee-length trousers were kept for festivities and the short Lederhosen were a part of a man’s daily wardrobe for work or in their free time.  A man was able to move better in the shorter Lederhosen and they were therefore better for hunting and working in the fields. Alpine herdsmen and mountain men always wore short Lederhosen. They have always been made out of soft, smooth real leather either from a deer, a mountain goat or a cow. The traditional colour of the Lederhosen is brown. In the collection from Ludwig & Therese you can find light brown to hazelnut brown, walnut brown as well as black. Antique brown Lederhosen have a special charm to them as they have that effective vintage look.

Short Lederhosen – the modern look

Lederhosen are back in fashion – especially the short ones, which you can make look classic as well as modern. The original Bavarian outfit consists of short Lederhosen with braces, a traditional shirt in white or checked pattern, brogues or loafers without socks. Trendy men are now combining the short Lederhosen with hoodies as well as printed t-shirts or polo-shirts. If you wear a sporty denim jacket or leather jacket and the outfit will all of a sudden have a rock vibe to it. The outfit will look elegant with a woolen jumper or cardigan which you would wear over a plain coloured shirt.  You should combine this look with socks that go over your calves or knees. The brogues should also then be replaced by traditional boots or suede trainers. The traditional accessories with short Lederhosen are a traditional hat and male jewelry. The male jewelry can be attached to the front flap of the shorts. Another option is to have the jewelry attached to the side of the Lederhosen which gives a more casual look. If you want to look more modern and fancy then you should leave the braces at home.
