For the past five years, I’ve attended Sierra Nevada’s Oktoberfest event in Chico, CA. And every year, I wonder if I should invest in a pair of Lederhosen.


Sadly, I always just end up wearing a black v-neck. But of course, that’s before Buy Committee was a thing.

So, Buy Committee (that’s you), scroll down to the comments to share your experiences with your lederhosen. Help me decide if I should pick up a pair. And please include pictures of yourself in lederhosen in the comments.


I’m scheduled to attend at least two Oktoberfests over the next couple of months, and I was wondering if they’re worth it?

My hesitation is two-pronged:

1. Am I being an asshole and appropriating German culture by wearing one?

2. Where do I even find a good one?

What do y’all think? I do not want to offend anyone while I eat too much bratwurst and potatoes. But I’m a big believer in full-assing everything.

Of course, we’re looking to help you decide on more purchases. So, if you’re still agonizing over something, email with the subject line “Buy Committee” or tweet us at @ItsTheInventory.
