When we think of lederhosen, we inevitably picture Bavaria. And of course it’s true that these type of pants are customary for Germany’s largest state in particular — but it’s not only there. Other Alpine peoples such as Austrians, the Swiss and the inhabitants of South Tyrol happily slip on a pair of lederhosen. So it’s fair to say that leather shorts aren’t simply a Bavarian phenomenon.
