Octoberfest Outfitter

Train Station, Munich

So Carl started it, and whilst Octoberfest has finished in Munich, some images had found their way in my camera. Regarding traditional costumes, Octoberfest might multiply the number of Dirndl and Lederhosen, the Bavarian-of-a-hundred-years-ago outfit for women and men, in comparison to what’s already worn in the countryside by the more tradionally oriented (and often organised) people. However what you might get here in the train station is just a preposterous ripoff, printed instead of woven, polyester instead of linen, made for some crazy hours of drunkenness and not more. Yet several hundred thousand tourists buy it and obviously like it: Can they be wrong?
