I think it looks fine.

It probably helps that you put it into a context for me, but I expect anyone who notices you in it will probably go through the following thought process:

"Whoa! What's that? I've never seen a skirt like that! I need to find out where he got it!"

Be sure to make a pattern for it when you sew it together just in case that curiosity turns into orders.

It looks surprisingly good to me.

I mean, when I first saw, "Roman armor style skirt," I thought, "Oh good grief, how can that not be trite?" But the color and the style definitely move away from epic gladiator movies and that's what makes the difference.

Just keep away from the chariot, the breastplate, and the brush helmet, eh?
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.
