German Lederhosen: Boys' Wear Shirts

Figure 1.--The boy in this German ad, probably from the 1970s, shows a younger German boy wearing a red checkered gingham shirt with lederhosen and red kneesocks.

Lederhosen are normally worn with collared shirts. For dress occasions they might be worn with a white shirt and a tie. For normal every day wear they were often worn with ginham or other plaid-like shirts. The most common ginham was a red checked pattern, although various blue shades were also worn. HBC has not noticed other colors of ginhams.
