Tyrolean Trousers....Columbia Convention Center
a beer festival be without lederhosen? Sadly lacking, indeed. I did not get close enough to determine if actual leder had been used to make these. In a related aside, do let me help you learn from my mistake: as a young anthropologist, I called these short trousers "leiderhosen" which means, in German, "sad britches". As some football coach, somewhere, has surely said: "there is no 'i' in lederhosen." Most definitely no "i" here--these britches and the chaps wearing them were quite cheerful!
