Robert Downey Jr. is trading in his Iron Man suit for a pair of custom lederhosen. Don't ask questions, just soak it all in, ladies and gentlemen.

The movie star arrived at the official Iron Man 3 photocall in Munich alongside costar Gwyneth Paltrow in a highly decked-out version of Bavaria's traditional leather man breeches. I guess that's one way to pay homage to your visiting country. 

Striking a fierce pose, RDJ flaunted his three-quarter-length lederhosen, which came complete with gold stitch detailing and an embellished chain. The actor then accessorized this costume with green midcalf socks and a green kerchief tied around his neck.

Though we shake our heads fondly at this little caper, we can't say we're terribly surprised by his antics anymore. On Wednesday, Tony Stark's alter ego was photographed on the carpet with his fly down and apparently no inkling whatsoever.

The charismatic actor got to enjoy another bit of German tradition when he and costar Paltrow were spotted grabbing a quick bite and pint at local beer restaurant Spatenhaus on Thursday. 

The movie, which hits theaters May 3, finds the superhero and his ladylove taking on Stark's nemesis Mandarin.
