Quoting R2rho (Reply 7): During Oktoberfest, Bavarians do wear Lederhosen every day. And during the rest of the year, they wear them no more or less frequently than women wear Dirndls. So the comment was not wrong
Not only during Oktoberfest. It's pretty common to see farmers and other people in the country side wear it all year round. Lederhosen and Dirndls are not cheap and are worn with pride.

Quoting PanHAM (Reply 3): no Lederhosen, that's an American myth that Bavarians run around in Lederhosen every day
Sorry its not "everyday" but I was in Bavaria in the summer of 2002 and we randomly stopped at a small church in a town, a few minutes later to our surprise came a group of people marching on up to the church in lederhosen, of which there were not many people around at the time, so it was clear that it was not some huge well known event. I have a picture of it too, but since it shows everyone's faces i won't post it.

Like somebody said... Lederhosen are pretty expensive and are worn with pride by their owners. We wear them to special occasions like weddings, baptism, a parade or march trough the village to some occasions and of course to the local (beer) festivals (Oktoberfest being the biggest, but we have smaller ones (one tent, one carroussel) all across Bavaria from April till October...
Farmers might wear them... but I guess because they are short and comfortable to wear especially during hot summer days. But they definitely won't wear the good ones
Back to LH and their uniforms during that time..
well.. the one they are wearing on the picture is not the best combination that they could've chosen but I still think it's a nice idea! Something different.
p.s. wearing the knot on the right side means: married, engaged, taken

For some reason, Lufthansa always has this strong affiliation with Munich/Bavaria. Don't they sponsor FC Bayern Munich as well? It's strange since most LH staff is located in FRA and the company is headquartered in Cologne.
