Toddler Lederhosen Boy Costume
Here’s some fun facts about Lederhosen: They were once common workwear across Central Europe, because they were made out of leather, and thus they were more durable than a fabric garment and thus popular for hard physical work. In fact, traditional lederhosen were hand made of tanned deer leather, which made the pants super soft and light but incredibly tear-proof. As those leather pants were quite valuable and could last a lifetime, some Bavarian people even bequeathed their lederhosen to the next generation. Because of their role as a workman’s outfit, Lederhosen are still popularly associated with virility and brawn, kind of like the kilt in Scotland and the cowboy hat in the United States!
And in the past, German boys used to wear lederhosen until they were about 16. These lederhosen were not decorated with embroidery, but still had the typical attributes of suspenders/braces and a drop-front flap. Even today, some German and French Scouts wear various forms of lederhosen (although, most of the time, they’re not part of the official uniform)!
Nowadays, though, Lederhosen are most often associated with the most festive of Bavarian and German traditions, the Oktoberfest! And this exclusive Toddler Lederhosen Boy Costume is perfect for attending any kind of international festival. Your son will love learning about new cultures while he wears this fun costume that even comes complete with the traditional hat and white stockings!
