Man from Alsace - Alsacien - Size #2 / Elite

Man from Alsace - Alsacien

The Man from Alsace is in traditional dress. 

"The men’s costume consisted of a white- and blue-striped or -checked, long-sleeved cotton shirt during the week, and a plain or many-coloured, gold-buttoned waistcoat on Sundays and festive occasions with dark or light brown, or black, corduroy trousers. The triangular-shaped red or checked scarf was worn round the neck. The wide-brimmed black felt hat was decorated with a black silk, knotted ribbon. The leggings were either crocheted or knitted, made of thick wool and the clogs were made of chestnut or lime wood, like the women’s." - http://www.ot-colmar.fr/en/alsatian-folklore
