    It can be inferred that these stereotypes are driven by one thing: Envy. Pure envy.

    I think no German is ashamed of the Bavarian stereotype. For the one it is funny and for the other it is culture. That is the german meaning, i think.

    As my German heritage is from that geographic region known as "Bavaria", I am extremely proud (and rightly so) of this fact.

    As I have stated here on the forum some months back, my maternal grandmother was a very proud German lady (from Bavaria herself) and when I was about 3 or 4 years old she bought a completely authentic Bavarian costume, complete with lederhosen, green felt hat and suspenders (still have it all too).

    If I can ever find a German Heritage festival in Texas I will purchase a pair of lederhosen to wear when I attend the event.

    I wonder if this would look good with Cowboy boots? Hmmmmmmmmmm.

    You haven't looked very hard if you can't find a German Festival in Texas. Start with the Wurstfest next month in New Braunfels.

    I do love the bavarian stereotype. My blood being mostly bavarian. I love wearing my lederhosen to festivals, love to drink lots of weissbier, love our food, and love my chubby beerdrinking alpine look.

    Not ashamed but totally annoyed. This stereotype is neither funny nor useful. Germany is far more than abusive stereotypes.

    The German girls look great in the traditional German clothing. I know that some Germans still walk around in German traditional clothes, I had seen some Images.

    Me to, i´m not ashamed.
    I am so sorry the non-Germans who are so uneducated them Bavaria for "typically German " hold. Bavaria and Bavarian customs and traditions is only one part of the varied German culture.
    "Typically German " are also the Schleswiger and the Holsteiner, "sludge slides " and "bosseln". Googele this.
    "Typically German " are not only the alp herds of Bavaria but also the inhabitants of the Halligen in the North Sea.
    We GERMANS a great, coloured varied culture has what connects and EVERYBODY is we GERMAN think and feel !
    Not "in Bavarian ", "Thuringian " or "Hessian ".

    We are all German´s, and our Germany is great !

    Do any Germans on here wear traditional German clothing? And when did this custom stop? What about your ancestors?

    My forefathers come from east Prussians, from Königsberg.
    They carried by holidays still their hereditary national costume. I myself carry every now and then the national costume of my North-German adoptive country because I feel very much linked with the North-German people and their mentality.
    I consciously wear no Jean's, so practically they may also be because I connect the American lack of culture with Jean's.
    I wear exclusively in Germany or Europe produced clothes.
    I also try to live in my clothing strictly to my disposition.
