Here are some fun facts about lederhosen: They were once common workwear across Central Europe, they were more durable than a fabric garment, and they were handmade, making the pants very durable. 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.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.
