Looks good, cheap production,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: InCharacter Costumes Men's Bavarian Guy (Apparel)
This costume is for a local Octoberfest for my husband. It looks pretty good, but the whole thing is made of thin fabric, obviously pretty cheaply made. But, it is a costume so that was expected! We are going to add the traditional feather to the hat, as it does not come with one. The costume looks good, I like the detail on the emblem on the lederhosen. I think it will get a lot of laughs!
The one thing that we think may be a problem is the shorts. The lederhosen are perminatly attached, and the 4 buttons on the front are just for show. The shorts actually have elastic in the back, no zippers or closures of any sort. That means in order to use the men's room, you have to take the lederhosen off your shoulders and pull the whole thing down. I may try to add a zipper in the front so he doesn't have to do that. It is Octoberfest, so lots of beer will be drank and many trips to the bathroom made!
As far as sizing, my husband is 5' 10" and weighs around 175 and the medium fits him perfect. I think large would have been way too big for him.
If we have any updates after Octoberfest, I will edit the review!

Thanks for the comment. When I'm in Lederhosen, I'm drinking beer and hence very impractical to disrobe completely every 30 minutes... unless I have a spidey suite on below.
