    Not really. I only have a Bavarian sweater from my grandfather when he visited Germany. The only national dress I've seen around these parts are for Mayflower and Plimoth Plantation re-enacters. My uncle played our ancestor in the 70's and I still think he has his English colonial costume. Of course you've also got the usual Lace Curtain Paddy Irish outfits for the parades and March 17th. I like the whole idea of getting a national costume to show your heritage, but the problem for me is which one.

    Most of my clothes are black and white so I suppose I do.

    I own a national costume of the Transylvanian Saxons which was passed down by my mother and hers from her mother, but I don't wear it normally, only at cultural occasions here in Hermannstadt.

    Our costume looks like this.

    I wear gumboots (Wellingtons). And in summer I wear jandals (flip flops).

    Not to keen on stubbies (very short 'rugby' shorts), just a bit too exposing :

    Ah yes, the folk costumes of the colony...

    I own only Dutch wooden shoes

    I should point out that I consider it as a national lost of our heritage this decline of wearing and interests in folklore costumes.

    Yep, I've got a white t-shirt, black leather jacket, black shoes, jeans, and sunglasses to wear when I need to look American

    I would like to acquire an Anglo-Saxon outfit of cloak with brooch, tunic, and leggings. Maybe someday I can get to making one. Then I'll grow my beard out and take pictures

    I am not Bayerisch, but I like bayerische tracht, I have 2 pair lederhosen, one brown ,one gray. Several tracht shirts, hand knitted socken, a charivari , hat and all else. Sometimes I wear my lederhosen without the rest of the getup. They are comfortable and you never have to clean them.

    Also I do early middle ages reenacting as a Sachsen continental . I think this qualifies as national costume, but 1300 years ago.

    Look at these two little treasures in Fürth!

    Sure, I´ve a traditional Bavarian Dirndl with regional reference to our Bavarian Forest. My deceased grandmother stitched some of the patterns, I hold it in very high value. I don´t wear it regularly, though, only on special events.
