Although the design has virtually remained unchanged, the way lederhosen is used has evolved over the years. Knee-length breeches were the standard attire for the working men in several parts of Europe in the pre-industrial revolution era. In Germany and Austria, these breeches were made out of leather, and that’s how the lederhosen was created.
In the past, lederhosen was primarily worn by peasants. However, in the 18th century, it grew popular and became the unofficial dress code for outdoor activities. Today, lederhosen is a leisurewear. It has become a representation of Bavarian culture. Lederhosen is the de facto dress code for men during the Oktoberfest festival. Wearing lederhosen is not merely a fashion statement. When you wear it, you are partaking in a tradition that goes back many centuries and helping to preserve the Bavarian culture.
