A man in bunad


This is one of the photos I took on May 17th. This handsome guy is wearing a national costume, called bunad. I think more men should wear these! ;-) What do you think?

I don't think men are going to be giving up zippers for all those buttons, any time soon!

I won’t comment on the costume but May 17th is really something special. I spent a few hours in the midst of celebrations in Oslo 2004 and I’m not going to forget that any time soon... :)

Wytrvn: LOL, you might be right about that... too bad! But at least they can wear it once a year. Me like! :)

Per: Wow, Per... what a nice photo! Thanks for sharing. :) I'm happy you enjoyed the stay here during our special day!

So this is the national costume? What is the chain between the waistcoat/vest? I'm posting the city's civic costumes today at BDP. Cheers.

I like this costume. I took the photo of a man wearing bunad too on 17th May, maybe I should post it also :)

James: The chain is probably for his watch... the oldfashioned type, you know? :)

tanty: I think you should post that photo. :D

Love the button comment. I can't imagine my conservative husband wearing a national costume of any kind, but I think it is very important to remember one's heritage on special occasions. Wonderful portrait!

Thank you, Kate! :)
