German Traditional Clothing Costumes Gets German Fest Denver $2.00 Entry Discount

Put on your fun self and lets have fun!

Traditional German Clothing

Personal fashion in Germany is known as ‘Tracht’ which became popular around 1813, in the form of an individual’s wardrobe and personal appearance, as a way of presenting one’s place of origin, marital status, ethnic background or their vocation or social role in life.

Also known as Altdeutsche Tracht, “old German” dress or costume (also known as Deutsche Nationaltracht, “German national costume”). Today Tracht describes any garment reminiscent of the attire of regional German communities.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altdeutsche_Tracht

In northern Germany some of the best known examples are the “Friesische Tracht” and the Finkenwerder Tracht. The “Friesische Tracht” is richly decorated with beads and embroidery.

The Tracht of southern Germans and Austria has inspired an entirely new fashion style, called Landhausmode (Country Estate Style). Landhausmode, influenced by the costumes of the farmers, peasants and rural people, and characterized by the use of linen, loden (a traditional type of felt that has recently[when?] gained popularity worldwide) and embroidery.

Southern Germany, Bavaria and Austria, it is still acceptable to wear ‘tracht’ on official occasions like weddings, festivals, etc.

Costumes worn by professional guilds are also called “Tracht”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tracht

Vests are a part of the traditional German man’s wardrobe with colorful trimmings and embroidery.

Forms of clothing varies and are based on regional preferences and customs. An example would be the Loden cape, which is a heavy duty cloak or coat.

German males of the Alpine, Bavaria and the cities wore lederhosen (translates to knee-length trousers or short- leather pants in German), to work and leisure activities

German head dress also differs from German region to region and depends on the occasion. An example is the Alpine hat, with a short brim, also known as the Tyrolean hat is made of felt with a thin cord or braid around the base of the crown. Feathers can be used for decorating. With most German hats, the hat is one size smaller than the individual’s actual hat size, so the hat sits on the head, rather than over it.

The Miesbacher hat is another style, with a complete round but short brim with a rounded top. This is a very regional style coming from a town in Bavaria.

For the Women – Originally, the dirndl was the uniform of the Austrian servants. It’s a close-fitting bodice combined with an apron in a different color. Sometimes its sleeveless and worn with a cotton and lace blouse, sometimes it features sleeves and a high neck.
