In memory of the ueber famous king of Bavaria, King Ludwig II., we have created these gorgeous pair of dark brown lederhosen. King Ludwig was the creator of the fairy castle NEUSCHWANSTEIN, a tourist hot spot and must see for every American that visits Bavaria. These lederhosen depict the Bavarian lions and the Bavarian blue and white flag (Rauten Flagge). King Ludwig who is also remembered as the Maerchenprinz built several other incredible beautiful castles around Bavaria. All our lederhosen are sized/tagged in actual inches, measured around the inside of the waist band. Please take the measurement of your jeans or pants at home (around the inside waist band) to see with how many inches those come up and that is basically the size you want to order your lederhosen in from us. The leather of the lederhosen also stretches a little bit after a few times of wearing. in the back of the waist band are those straps (like shoe laces) to fine tune the fit. you can loosen and tighten them around an inch.
