Traditional clothing suits everyone and is always an elegant alternative. Traditional fashion is snazzy and the suitable attire whether worn to work, with your friends on a coffee date or for an event. It’s even a real eye catcher at the very famous Salzburg Music Festival, Salzburger Festspiel. It’s no wonder that traditional clothing has become idolized!
Where does traditional fashion come from?
Traditional style emerged at the end of the 1800’s. Traditional clothing was established to preserve the Austrian traditions. Later on, the Austrian traditional style became a fashion style of its own and was classified amoungst the people.
In the 1900’s they started to develop on the idea of Austrian traditional style. Farming families in particular believed the clothing should be modern, unspoiled folk heritage.
In the last couple of years tradition fashion has experienced an enormous revival in Germany and Austria. The return of traditional value and culture has been a significant contribution to its revival. Many people have incorporated traditional clothing into their daily living.
In the past, traditional clothing could tell you a lot about:
Where did the traditional clothing come from?
Where does the person wearing it come from?
The marriage status of a woman (this could be seen by the way she tied the ribbon of her apron)
The traditional clothing of today goes back to the hunting and hiking styles. It has been pepped up by the trendy fashion industry and has created traditional clothing as a fashion statement.
Traditional style – The traditional sports coat for men!
When purchasing a traditional sports coat, also known as a traditional jacket or “Trachtenjanker”, you should first consider whether you would like a traditional original or a sporty, modern coat?
Traditional style of the traditional sports coat, more particularly the Salzburger suit or jacket, is extremely popular. This is an elegant, modest sports coat in middle to dark grey fleece wool, with a green trim. There are many variations of this sports coat. The most popular designs are either with a lapel or raised colar. The back has a pinched seam with or without a battleaxe. Real deer horn buttons have become quite rare and are an indication of real feature.
The “Salzburger” is also very well suited to a formal occasion, worn with a vest underneath.
Das sportliche moderne Trachtensakko.
Hier ist zu Beginn zu überlegen, zu was Sie Ihr Sakko tragen wollen. Zu einer Lederhose oder doch lieber zu einer Stoffhose oder Jeans? Davon hängt nämlich die Länge des Sakkos ab. Zu der Lederhose werden die Trachtenjanker kürzer getragen.
Das sportlich moderne Trachtensakko ist wunderbar kombinierbar. Hier lässt sich sehr gut Tradition und Moderne miteinander verbinden! This is the reason why traditional fashion is alive and is not only worn by the local traditional clothing lovers but also by many in America and Japan.
How important is freedom of movement in your traditional sports coat?
Many men prefer a well-fitted design. Others are more in favour of freedom of movement. The range of movement can very easily be increase by means of the side slits. The pinched seams (also known as box pleat) on the back can also offer improved freedom of movement.
Traditional fashion wearability should also not be too short!
We the gentlemen’s outfitter Gollhofer place considerable worth on the material and manufacturing countries.
The love of detail, elaborate finishings and refined embroidery, round up our collection. The owner, Christoph Wimmer (professional men’s and ladies master tailor) pays particularly great attention to fabric selection and workmanship, as the expert in his field!
Natural materials are preferred in the fabric selection. These fabrics have a distinctive good wearability and increase the comfort factor. Men do not only want to look good in their traditional sports coat but they also want to perspire less. This is why synthetic fibers are just not suitable. We favour the fabrics according to the time of the year: such as fleece wool, loden, silk, cotton, linen and also the microfibers for the leatherette effect. We also use fabric blends to improve the wearability and to simplify the aftercare.
In the past there were not so many options of traditional outfits as there are today. The scope of traditional clothing is much more hidden in the design and colour. This is why there are many more options in the clours.

Tipps for tradition fashion
The right arm length:
For the perfect appearance it is important to pay attention to the right length of the arms. This is more often being neglected and this gives the impression that the jacket is too big. This has the optical effect of shrinking the body. The rule of thumb is that the buttons cover your wrist and sleeve hem. Approximately 1.5 cm of the wristband should be seen.
What is import for the vest under the traditional style jacket?
To spruce up your look you should consider that the vest should always be fitted to your body. The vest must cover the waistband of your trousers and the last button is always worn open. Make sure that the vest is fitted but not too tight, to prevent the impression that the buttons are ready to burst open.
Your shirt should at no point be visible at the most bottom part of the vest.
What does the perfect trousers look like?
The perfect trousers are extremely important to not shrink you in your outfit. Trousers, which are too short, create the appearance of shorter legs. And nobody wants to look shorter. Wear a suitable pair of shoes to define your hemline, or better yet, none at all.
The hemline should rest on the front of the show but not touch the heel. The leg of the trousers can be slightly shorter in the front than at the back.
It is important to figure out whether the length of the trousers makes your legs look shorter or longer.
