Traditional Lederhosen for Kids & Babies
There’s hardly anything cuter than seeing our offspring in kids' Lederhosen! The little ones look just too sweet in the traditional German pants, which are world-famous not only for their chic, but also for their robustness.
Children's Lederhosen have a long tradition
The history of Lederhosen dates back to the 18th century. At that time, they were mainly used as work trousers and were characterized, as they are still today, by its comfort and robustness. The classic, short Lederhosen was presumably introduced in the early 20th century by a student movement in Berlin, the "Wandervögel" (birds of passage). Primarily boys in school age wore leather pants as everyday clothing. Until the 1970s, Lederhosen were one of the most popular boys' clothing in Austria and Germany. Only then they got replaced by modern jeans. Today, Lederhosen are only in rural areas worn as an everyday outfit. Fortunately, kids’ and babies’ Lederhosen are in fashion every year for the Oktoberfest around the world!
The "short one" or the knee breeches for boys and girls
Just like women nowadays often prefer Lederhosen over Dirndl, that choice is also possible for little girls! Girls and boys are allowed to wear the proper leg dress and feel good about it! Lederhosen for children and babies are available in a short version or as knee breeches. They are characterized mainly by the broad, curving bib, which is held in place of the usual slot of two large buttons. A central gusset at the rear waistband is used to adjust the waist measurement. Lederhosen can be worn with and without suspenders. Braces with the characteristic front crossbar have the advantage of ensuring the correct fit even when playing and frolicing around. Small whirlwinds therefore benefit especially from them. As a footwear classic Haferl shoes fit best. With breeches long Trachten socks are perfect. They are pulled over the knee in front of the pants and turned over once. Then the kids Lederhosen are pulled over and tied under the knee. With the "short one" you have several options regarding stockings:
- foldover socks
- knee socks
- Loferl (calf warmers without the foot part)
Depending on your babies’ taste, you can combine shirts in classic Vichy square or cute traditional shirts.
