Lederhosen, or leather breeches, were originally designed for physical work.  Made from leather, they are more durable than fabric garments and easier to clean.

A dirndl consists of a bodice, blouse, full skirt, and apron.  Like lederhosen, the dirndl was designed for work.  It was commonly worn by servants and maids in the 19th century.
