With Oktoberfest fast approaching and the Bavarians proving themselves as the overlords of European football, Adidas has gone perhaps a bit too traditional and modeled Bayern Munich's new away kit after lederhosen.

The brown shorts were intended to look like leather pants to go with the white-collared shirt and to complete the ensemble, Adidas even produced a special jacket and "jaunty hat" to go with it. Both of which you can buy in the club shop.

To break in the new kit, Manuel Neuer, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller arm wrestle in it, and to prove its Oktoberfestiness, Javi Martinez and Schweinsteiger play Hammerschlagen in it.

With the power of lederhosen infused in their away kit, Bayern might never lose again.
