Blinged lederhosen - Cool !!!

Lederhosen are traditional short trousers make of leather. Today, lederhosen were worn by some Austrian and German men at festivals or special occasions.

Surprisingly, Christian Wohlmuther, an Austrian designer, who owns a clothing business that sells traditional Austrian attire based in Bad Mitterndorf, Styria and also works with a local jeweler in the Styrian town of Liezen is taking orders for personalized luxury lederhosen.

He says the cost of the blingerhosen (our term - we're hoping it catches on) varies depending on the decoration. Those interested can choose from an array of stones, including garnets, rubies, emeralds and diamonds, that are then mounted on buttons made either of sterling silver, gold or platinum.

Wohhlmuther says a diamond-studded pair was sold recently for £57,00 (€84,000). His first pair of luxury lederhosen - decorated with 166 diamonds - went to a German buyer who lives in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, earlier this summer, he added.
