It's that time of year again - Oktoberfest! The largest beer drinking festival of the year. You and your mates are looking for the perfect men's costumes because of course, you all need to dress up for the occasion. The ultimate solution is the lederhosen. The actual thing is as exotic as the name suggests. Be sure to turn heads as you walk in with your traditional German lederhosen.

The lederhosen

To translate to the Australian audience, the lederhosen is a pair of shorts (knee-length or a bit shorter) with attached suspenders to place over your shoulders. Lederhosens can come in suede, leather or your traditional polyester. eBay has a number of different designs and some even come as a set with a collared shirt and bavarian style hat. Why not go all the way and look the part!

Browse the different colours and designs of the lederhosen. Step out of your comfort black and try a bright green or bright orange. Be mindful of the sizing especially if you are a bit on the tall or stocky side. If you are debating between two sizes, it may be a good idea to order the larger size. Or maybe you would like to go as a lager glass. Oktoberfest is the festival to celebrate food, beer and a good time so wear a costume that shows you're ready for a good time!

A fun fact

Did you know that Oktoberfest started out as a wedding celebration? And what's not to like about weddings. It seems the guests at the wedding had such a great time that they returned the following year to repeat the experience. Over the years, the festival has become an opportunity to show off the country's agriculture.
