Although this fashion house has fully specialized in men’s clothing, it appears that there are some dirndls in the regional clothing department. But if you want a wide range of dirndls, Lodenfrey is the place to go. In addition to popular manufacturers of leather pants such Trachten & Dirndl von Moser Trachten as Meindl, there are traditional young clothing labels on hangers, such as Amsel and Gottseidank. There is a great variety and the apartment is so large that you can easily spend a whole afternoon there. Hirmer deserves its title as the world’s largest men’s fashion store.
Other options include velvet bracelets or, for more rustic styles, leather straps. Having the right jacket for your dirndl can make a big difference, especially during cooler weather at Oktoberfest, and really complete an outfit. There are several options, starting at the top of the bowl with a traditional Janker made of lead or wool. Alternatively, if you plan to spend the entire day at Oktoberfest, you can opt for a backpack to match. However, Dirndl backpacks don’t work well as part of fancy evening wear, so you’re better off having a small clutch. Whichever option you choose, try to keep your bag, shoes, and dirndl itself coordinated by colors.
A jury judges the flying women in Dirndl on style, sportsmanship, clothing and originality. Dresses are everywhere at Oktoberfest and other Bavarian beer festivals and are also regularly worn by waitresses in Bavarian restaurants and by guests at weddings. No dirndl outfit is complete without a large apron. Aprons are great for adding a splash of color to your outfit, so make sure you choose one that goes well with the color of your dress. Most dirndl styles require a blouse to wear under your dress.
Their dirndl dresses can be up to 10 times more expensive than other options, but the quality and uniqueness of the craftsmanship is second to none. The specialty of Edelweiss-Muencen is fairytale dirndls that look like something from a fashion magazine. Oktoberfest costumes for men are a bit simpler than those of ladies, as the options are usually a bit more traditional. A typical boys’ outfit at Oktoberfest has a button-down shirt, leather shorts with suspenders, an alpine hat, classic socks and sturdy Bavarian shoes. When you take it to the next level, there are additional options for hat accessories, jackets and cardigans for Oktoberfest that we explain in detail below.
Of course, you wouldn’t expect women in wealthy society to wear raw cotton or linen. The Dirndl was “improved” and became much more elaborate, made of the best materials such as silk, satin, velvet or brocade. In terms of quality and elegance, these dresses did not resemble the work suit of the servants at all.
