Oktoberfest - O'zapft is!

The 175th Oktoberfest is under way in Munich. I hear on the BBC that Chinese lederhosen is undercutting the price of this most Bavarian of attire. Traditional Bavarian tailors are up in arms.

For those of you interested in such things, C&A in Munich has a huge array of reasonably priced traditional Bayerische clothing on the first floor of its store in Munich. I stare at it longingly from time to time until I am slapped back into reality by E.

Is it all made in China? I don't know!

The photo shows the Mayor of Munich, in lederhosen, tapping the first cask.

Am I right in thinking it's one of the last casks too?
