    Put down your Kräusenbier my friends as you already know that the superior beer is that of Germany I wish you to direct your wander eyes toward the great suit style of my homeland it's which I speak of the Trachtenanzug. Here for your pleaser I will display a foto of one most formal but not of my own: [​IMG] I hope you are not licking your chops too aggressively for not being able to purchase such a superior model in your country, as you might make a muscle stain in your tongue.

    Solid looking outfit. And a heck of a crease. The icebreaker of the wading pool.

    Yeah, those things are so aerodynamic you can use them to slice bread. They easily pass the wind tunnel test.

    I think there was a time some 60 years ago when this type of suit was particularly popular...

    I see some people wearing this line of clothing when I am in Baviara, and often they look very good in it. Much better than the mainstream German youth which appears to have adopted this international trend of "dressing down"...

    "Tracht" is still very popular in Bavaria and Austria and companies like Schneiders in Salzburg specialise in fashionable re-interpretations of it. You can even get a "Tracht"-version of a tuxedo.

    That particular style featured is rather folkloristic; I believe it comes from the Traunsee area of Austria. Probably member "˜fritzl' can give more information, as it is his neck of the woods (or is it the lakes?).

    I have a felt wool Undercoverism jacket that somewhat looks like that material.
