Review from someone that is 6'4 210lbs accessing the size of costume
by Charlie Curtiss (3 out of 5 stars)
November 15, 2015

I bought the large because i was thinking XL would be to big. Im 6'4 210 and this costume did fit me that well. The two things that didnt fit were the suspenders and the hat. First the hat, I have a rather large head, (7 1/2"), so i kinda expected the hat to not fit right, they never do. But the suspenders, they are prefab suspenders that are not adjustable so if you arent size (___) then they will likely either be too small or too long. Being they were way too small for me and I still wanted to wear them, i went to a local fabric shop and bought some elastic bands and cloth to match the suspenders and sewed them on in order to get a better fit as well as actually acting as suspenders that stretch not just cloth straps. The rest of the costume seemed to fit as expected. Shorts and shirt fit nicely. I always expect that prefab costumes will never fit me right, so given that, the costume functioned as expected and fit as the chart describe, but this review is for someone who may be similar size as me and wanted an opinion on how the costume could fit

Exactly what I needed
by Dave (4 out of 5 stars)

Overall for 26 bucks this outfit is great. It will hold up to multiple wears and the was comfortable to wear in an XL at 6 ft and 245 lbs. I have very broad shoulders and the shirt fit well. Well worth it. You just need to expect to make a few simple modifications.

My advice... The socks are worthless and the suspenders are short as well, both of these issues are mentioned in other reviews so was prepared. A quick trip to Walmart produced some short alligator clip extensions to the suspenders. I threw out the socks immediately because they are super thin and flimsy and too small to fit size 13 feet, and instead wore some off-white Smartwool hiking socks with hiking boots. If you want, do what I do and glue a big red feather to the hat. The hat is a little small but that only enhances the comedic value of the outfit. And it's not uncomfortable. So yes you may have to do a few things, but they take minutes and overall buying this was way easier and authentic looking than trying to create something from scratch. I am tempted to give it 5 stars based on value alone, but realize some people may expect a 5 star rating to mean perfect out of the box.

Good quality costume

Good quality costume! The biggest complaint was "Why doesn't it have pockets?" Welcome to the struggle women face always, babe.

Did the job

Last minute Halloween costume for the Hubby. I already owned a German Beer Girl costume, so I ordered this for him, based on sizing and other reviews. My husband is 5'10" with a little extra to love around the waist, but overall more athletic of a build. His main complains was how high cut the crotch area was, since the suspenders aren't adjustable, in a more delicate way than he would put it- the goods have to choose a side of the leg openings to hang out in. Size up for more comfort. He got a Large.

For a costume it's good
by Rob Hughes (4 out of 5 stars)

I did hit a couple snags with it. When I first put it on, I accidently ripped one of the suspenders from the shorts. They're sewn in and permanent. It was easy enough to sew it back on and I was much more careful putting it on and off after that.

The hat was also very thin and wrinkled, I purchased a 100% wool fedora replace it from Amazon for a great price. Check out "Sakkas 90M Wayne Burnished Buckle Wool Trilby Fedora - Chocolate - L/XL" it goes perfectly with this costume.

The socks are basically nylons. Nothing special there. You could go out and purchase some nice long socks, but they worked just fine.

The shirt needed ironing as it was very wrinkled. It's a thin nylon shirt with a medieval look/feel to it which can be used with other costumes, so it might come in handy in the future.

The shorts and suspenders look great and everyone thought they were real. They definitely are not real, but most people don't know what real lederhosen look like so no problem. Only thing that would be better is if the suspenders were adjustable and detachable. But for this price, you get what you paid for.

Overall, good costume.

XL was a little small on a big guy
by John M McLellan (4 out of 5 stars)
November 1, 2016

I am 6' tall and 235 pounds with broad shoulders. The XL fit a tiny bit small on me, and I felt it made me look more like a "fat German" rather than a "Traditional Bavarian." My friends said I looked more like a strange Keebler elf due to the hat not fitting well either (much too small for my big noggin). I didn't mind, cuz obviously at my size, it's not like I'm winning men's physique competitions anyways. The costume was a hit for humor, and that was what I bought it for. Mission accomplished.

good costume quality for the price
by Amazon Customer (4 out of 5 stars)
October 11, 2018

we got this costume for about $30 after tax. My son is 5'10 and 190lbs and we got him the extra large. The costume is roomy in some areas and fits just right in others so I feel we got the right size and we may hem it to make a better fit but it is better to be too big than too small. The quality of the shirt, shorts, and hat are good costume quality, not something to be worn as a real looking laderhosen but good for Halloween or a school play which is what our purpose is. the socks are basically pantyhose material and my son wont wear those but no big deal.

Ordered a large for my 5'8" husband. The biggest issue is that the suspenders which are sewn into the shorts are way too short! (wedgie) and the shorts too large, hanging down in the back. Fabric is very thin, the chest piece on the suspenders covered the v-neck of the shirt and the hat is just a wadded up mess. AND I can't return it because I opened the package!! Halloween Express return policy is too restrictive. I've never had problems returning items purchased on Amazon before. I also never found the return policy until after I requested a return. Don't buy from Halloween Express!

Horrible horrible horrible!
by Amazon Customer (1 out of 5 stars)

Where do I begin. The picture does not do this item justice. The hat was crunched and couldn't hold its shape any more. The pants and shirt were about 2-3 sizes way too big. The material is horrible and on top of that, there are no pockets on the costume. Unless you are planning on having someone hold your stuff, this is not something you want to buy. If I could rate this a 0, I would.

GREAT outfit!!
by Chris M Niemeyer (5 out of 5 stars)
October 14, 2015

It was easy to use and, at less than $24, very reasonably priced. I wore it to a daytime, alcohol-free Oktoberfest celebration at the university where I work at (it's a public university but has no liquor license). The costume was a hit! I actually got surprised looks from people, many of whom complimented me on the outfit. This was all the more appropriate since I was the only one who bothered to wear anything even remotely Bavarian to the event (kind of hard to have an Oktoberfest feeling when everyone's dressed the way they always dress plus there's no beer). Because of this, my picture was taken various times by a photographer for the student-newspaper so I suppose me and the Lederhose will be somewhere on the campus website soon. Anyway, this outfit comes highly recommended, though it is a costume and not something you would take on a serious hike to an Oktoberfest in an Alpine meadow or anything like that. Great for parties!
