Short-sleeved Trachten Shirts
How much beer Oktoberfest visitors consume, is often enough a question of training and age. Younger Bavarians who are used to "coma-drinking", will not stop drinking beer until they are finished. Well-trained men who have visited many Oktober-Festivals during their lives can digest an astonishing amount of beer. Some of them will be found sleeping in a corner of a beer tent the next day. Their short-sleeved shirt may be stained and dirty but the sleepers will carry a happy smile. It is almost a tradition to get very drunk and enjoy yourself in traditional Bavarian attire as long as the festivals lasts.
Bavarian or Austrian traditional clothing
Austria and Bavaria are known to hold their traditional looks in honour. People still love to wear the traditional costumes although these have been slightly changed with the times. More modern looks are needed because tastes change. Young people will not wear things they regard as old-fashioned. In Austrian traditional clothing as well as in Bavaria, fashion designers had to design new lines to meet the modern tastes. Even the classical short-sleeved shirt has been changed slightly. The lines look comparably slim nowadays, there is less decoration. You can easily wear such a shirt to any jeans without being seen as particularly traditional. How much beer Oktoberfest visitors may ever drink and where-ever they may spend the night after: A good washing machine will do a great job. The high quality of Bavarian attire guarantees that it lasts though all the hardships you might invent. Young fashion might be more modern, but the quality is not compromised. The white shirts might have some prints instead of embroideries - but they will stay typically Bavarian or Austrian. Mens shirts will still be capable of hiding beer bellies if necessary.
