“I bought him these lederhosen, and he worked up a comic routine. Everyone loved him. Everything’s funny when done in lederhosen.” – Rosemary Palmer
When a package arrives from Seattle’s legendary novelty emporium, Archie McPhee’s, you know it’s going to kitschy, or campy – or hopefully both. I opened the brown paper package, and to what did my wondering eyes appear? No, not Santa’s reindeer (or the classic gag gift, fake poop) but the most wondrously awful, but yet incredibly cool gift. The littlest lederhosen I had ever seen, designed to enrobe your wine bottles in Bavarian splendor. Vinderhosen, pants for your wine bottle. Perfect for Oktoberfest, or whenever the need for Trockenbeerenauslese arises – with Vinderhosen you got your bases (and your bottle covered).
The retail price of Vinderhosen is $12 USD and is available from Archie McPhee’s. This was a media sample impishly supplied by Archie McPhee.
