Lust for Lederhosen

According to Herbert Lipah, owner of the Royal Bavarian Lederhosen-Madness shop,"Once you try lederhosen on, your life will never be the same again."

Note: That is NOT Herbert Lipah, pictured above. We suspect it could be Herr Mago.

Lipah adds, "You don't need to clean lederhosen, or at least no more than once every two or three years."

We here at Infomaniac wonder if after several wearings your lederhosen would get a bit "whiffy" but each to his own. I suppose you could always Febreze liberally.

Have any of you Bitches tried on a pair of lederhosen? Did it change your life?

  1. My husband's family visited Germany when he was about two years old and they got him a pair. They're leather and tiny with eensy little buttons carved out of horn. ADORABLE.

    1. PEENEE: Adorable, indeed. And had he visited Germany as a baby, he could have worn teensy crocheted lederhosen.

  2. My brother-in-law's maternal family are German, and he has a pair from when he was a child that sound exactly like those that Peenee described.
    Needless to say, I didn't try them on, not least because they wouldn't fit!

    1. MR. DeVICE: Since you can't fit into the miniature lederhosen, you’ll have to make do with this instead.

    2. I note that it's sold out already. I'll have to make do with one of those pointy, Bavarian hats instead - someone may even mistake me for a witch!

    3. The pointy kind of Tyrolean hat is called the "vagabond style."

      So you're more likely to be mistaken for a tramp.

  3. Everybody is being too polite to make the very obvious German sausage joke.... but, my word, that is a big German sausage!

    2. Franconian sausages range from the tiny Nurembergian (7-8 cm) to the majestic and satisfying Coburgian (25 cm).

  4. I've never tried Lederhosen on but I did once cut the sleeves off my dad's leather jacket to wear on my legs, I blame Sandy from Grease for that.

    No need to clean them for 2-3 years not even a cursory rub down with saddle soap?

    Crotch rot can sometimes be a problem.

    1. MITZI: I’d like to know what Martha Stewart suggests.

    2. Martha Stewart wears lederhosen? Jx

    3. JON: No, but she knows everything about suede and leather care.

      Not so sure she could help with crotch rot, though.

  5. you've forced me to recall trying
    on a pair while visiting vienna.

  6. "Lust" ....or is that a rash?

  7. Nope. Leather shorts just seem too hot to be worn down these parts--climate wise & private wise...

    It must be summer in Germany when they start bringing out the bratwurst!

    1. EROS: But all good lederhosen have what Mr. Lipah describes is the "Bavarian air-conditioning" effect. "They keep you warm when it's cold, and cool when it's hot."

    2. What is true. I was told this by some men, independently, who are wearing such trousers, mostly the longer ones that end just over the knee.

  8. I had a pair as a child, there is photographical evidence, but I have no memory of them. Short, green, with braces.
    They were not life changing.
    BTW the normal folk wore goat leather or such, the expensive deer leather was only for noble people. It all took off in the 19th century when the freshly created kingdom of Bavaria "needed" a "Nationalkleid", a national costume, or "Tracht". That's why European Ethnologists (Volkskundler) try not to use the word tracht", because it is an idelogical word that comes with a whole lot a implications.
    Leather Dirndl btw is terrible unhistoric, never existed, pure marketing invention of the last twenty years or so, the blonde is (as I remember) a soccer player's wife, forgot the name - ach, they all look the same anyway ...

    1. Sylvie van der Waart or something like that. Her last name tells me she must be Dutch or Flemmish (Belgium)

    2. I think she is what the British tabloids call a "wag", but I have never found out what this short form stands for.
      There developed a kind of scene of these wives who are defined over her kicking husbands. So they carve out their own c- or d-list-stardom.

      Really crazy is when they all don their uniforms for Oktoberfest. It's all a "masque", ein Kostümfest, fete du masque, bal en mascera - and done and understood this way it's all nice and fun. Just forget the national(istic) undertones.

    3. "WAG" merely stands for "wives and girlfriends", according to the tabloids. They are overjoyed that it also rhymes with "slag", no doubt. Jx

  9. Carry on, Bitches. The Mistress is tied up for a few days but will return soon.
