Every Gay Man Should Have a Pair of Lederhosen
But lederhosen simply means leather pants in German. It was worn throughout the Alps, and especially in Bavaria, for hunting, farming, and other outdhoor activities.
Its popularity declined during the 19th century, when it was considered uncouth, "hayseed" clothing, like the hillbilly's overalls in America. Today it is worn primarily at festivals like Oktoberfest.
Especially with modern men, who add special lining down there to enhance their size.
Some men like lederhosen so much that they are starting to use it for everyday wear.
