German Soccer Team To Wear Lederhosen-Themed Uniforms For Oktoberfest
German soccer side 1860 Munich struggles to get traction with superpower Bayern Munich gobbling up all the attention. But that will change soon, when the club takes the pitch wearing lederhosen-themed kits.
Woah i thought these were a joke. These lederhosen soccer jersies are real. “The new 1860 Munich Kit: pic.twitter.com/t9tqYXItaU”

Wow. One has to wonder how many bratwursts and Kostriker steins deep the team’s management was when they made this decision. Those pants/shorts are truly one of the more remarkable pieces of fashion I’ve ever seen. They don’t exactly scream athleticism.
The team’s first foray wearing the seasonal duds will take place on Saturday.
Here’s hoping they go on a winning streak and keep them for the rest of the year.
