Robert Downey Jr In German Lederhosen – ‘Iron Man 3’ Munich Photocall

Robert Downey Jr In German Lederhosen - 'Iron Man 3' Munich Photocall

Robert Downey Jr. is no stranger to stepping outside the box when it comes to fashion, but he outdid himself at the Munich photocall for ‘Iron Man 3’ in Germany this afternoon at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof.

He showed up wearing traditional German lederhosen, complete with a neckerchief, embroidered cropped pants, green socks and Gucci Trek brown leather boots,

I’m sure he gave the journalists a good laugh wearing their nation-appropriate garb.

As the saying goes, when in Munich, do as the Münchners do.

He certainly has the charisma to pull it off.

    Only man, ever, who can pull off this look. Adore him and his fashion choices.

    I’m sure some guy in Munich is wearing this “look” and actually doing it well. I could be wrong. I just don’t love it.

    Glad he is enjoying making a fool of himself.

    LMAO. Love him even more!

    Hahahahaha! He just leapt over into Marc Jacobs territory for me, rotflmao. Talk about being WAY too literal. Hope his hosts had a sense of humor.

    Entertaining maybe but not good fashion.

    oh god, I wish he wore the original traditional bavarian clothes, this mix&match doesnt do anything for me at all…

    Is he wearing lifts? Those shoe inserts that add an inch to your height.

    • justme April 13, 2013 at 17:30 #

      I think he is. His shoes always seem to have thicker than average soles.

    • ggggg April 14, 2013 at 02:56 #

      Yes that why he always wear high top sneaker. The usually have thick soles. So that plus the lifts he inserts in them could give him a couple inches.

    The sight of this made me laugh. He looks like a grown man posing as a Boy Scout, crossed with a stereotypical cowboy.

    This is on the verge of foolish. EDJ is pushing it.

  11. Yeliz April 12, 2013 at 18:10 #

    This is funny and he can pull it off, but that doesn’t mean that I like it. He still looks better than most of the men who wear these traditional clothes though.

    This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Just because you’re charming enough to get away with it doesn’t mean you SHOULD. Even Johnny Depp would be like, “Dude, that’s a little much”.

    As much as I enjoy RDJ’s acting and crazy personality, I’m not going to pretend that I think he has a nice style. This is terrible lol.

  15. Anne April 12, 2013 at 17:40 #

    This look brings me such unadulterated joy. It is ridiculous, and I love it.

  16. Rebecca Z April 12, 2013 at 17:39 #

    Good Lord! I love him, but this is a tad over the top even for him. Love his hair.

  17. Gemma April 12, 2013 at 17:38 #

    LOVE this!

  18. Emma April 12, 2013 at 17:36 #

    Only he can make this look work))))))))

      +2 It’s hilarious! But only on him. He has the right attitude for this look.
