I think that I'll stick with the black Mary Jane shoes. I have two or three different styles.
I guess that I could try wearing the outfit without the belt though.

Real life can always look different than photographs.

The belt buckle just struck me as flamboyant in a historical way and the shoes not.

But by all means, do your own thing and revel in it.

I walked over to a local supermarket wearing my black utility kilt worn with the aforementioned decorative belt, sheer black tights (pantyhose) and my black Mary Jane shoes with medium/high (8cm - 3") block heels. Black polo shirt.
Pretty much the same outfit as pictured on page 5 of this thread.

When I got to the supermarket's checkouts, the lady till operator said that she liked my belt so we exchanged a few words about it. :)

For more examples of the belt - search "Elastic Cinch Belts" on ebay.

Quite a wide variety in colors styles features.

Kirbstone wears one frequently with his outfits.
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Thanks :)
Mine came from an eBay seller.
Thanks for the info about Kirbstone wearing such belts too. Nice to know that I'm not alone. :wink:

Most guys envy those who wear kilts or skirts and wish they had the guts to wear them. I used to be the guy who envied and wanted to find out how it would feel to wear a kilt or skirt. Now I know and don't need to envy anyone. I encountered another guy wearing a skirt and told him he must have a big I.Q.

I really like the release of tension when wearing a skirt. I thoroughly enjoy hiking in a skirt. I have never had rude comments, only positive or interesting questions I would like to have known before I began wearing skirts. Women like them. My wife loves them.

You can find that information posted here every day but the hard part is believing it. You have to defeat your own demons.

I hear that quite often. I absolutely love my UK. I think the fun part is when I'm around a buddy and he's giving me crap about my 'skirt' and a woman comes up and compliments me profusely. I'm preaching to the choir here, but chicks dig men in kilts!

A good percentage, at least.

Maybe the women do like men in utility kilts, I was at the Bottle'O the other week and there was two girls (mid to late 20's I guess) behind me in the queue at the checkout, and I could tell that one of them was discretely checking me out, while I think the other either didn't notice, or care.

I was wearing my black utility kilt, tank T shirt and simple rubber flip flops (what us Aussies call thongs), as it was a warm evening, very casual.

No comments made verbally, but she was definitely checking me out as after they left the shop and walked away, she did glance back as I was getting into the car.
I'll take that as a positive.

My wife likes it when I wear a sarong around the house as well.. and she has told me I can bring it with me when we go to the Philippines in a couple of months, she's not afraid of being seen with me either in the utility kilt or sarong.

Looks great oldsalt. :)
I'll definitely check out the 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilts range the next time I'm ready to buy a kilt.

I wore mine today in London for a press event (John Lewis), no one said anything about it (more's the pity)!

New patent MJ shoes

Postby shadowfax » Thu May 10, 2018 2:20 pm

I've recently been wearing some new black patent Mary Jane shoes with 3 3/4" (9.5cm) block heels together with my usual black Utility Kilt and polo shirt.
The shoes are surprisingly comfortable to walk in, now that I've broken them in a bit around the toes.
No problem driving my car either when I head out to more distant supermarkets.
BTW It's easier for me to reach items on the top shelf in the supermarket too! :wink: :)

Yeah, I've come across this myself-males making smart ass comments at kilts.

They are gender policing against men wearing....menswear!
