Handmade lederhosen.

Lederhosen are often seen as Germany's national dress, but they are actually only worn in Bavaria – where locals wear them with pride. Lederhosen are as popular today as they've ever been, especially on festive occasions such as Munich's Oktoberfest. To complete the look you need the side-laced haferlschuh shoes, the traditional regional shirt known as a trachtenhemd and the distinctive round-collared trachtenjanker jacket. For ladies there's the equally traditional dirndl dress. In Berchtesgaden, Engelbert Aigner still makes high-quality lederhosen by hand. Up to two deerskins and around 25 hours' work go into each pair, depending on the intricacy of the embroidery.
