For those wondering about appropriate clothing for the Oktoberfest, look at the pictures at Lola Paltinger's website - www.lolapaltinger.com (apparently links are discouraged). You can even order online, albeit only T-shirts - but what T-shirts!
Thanks for pointing that out, Paul. I can't seem to correct it - you should enter lolapaltinger.com or http://lolapaltinger.com - even www. doesn't hurt. I can't work out what's going wrong.
I really like what she has done with dirndls and lederhosen - didn't really look at the men's fashions, though.
