Hi from Iowa

Post by voodoomagic »

Hello from Iowa, I just started wearing a skirt 3 months ago, when it was very hot and humid. From a suggestion from my wife when I was working in the garage, she came out with one of her mothers old skirts and told me to try this. I looked at her kind of strangely, and it was really hot and humid, so why not. Best decision I ever made! Now I try to wear them where ever I go. I love the A-line the straight and the pencil style. Blue jean and cargo, and the kahkis i wear the most.

Welcome voodoomagic
Wearing skirts is wonderful year round. Really.
Be proud to wear a skirt or dress, they are just clothes. Yes , they are for men too

Wow! This might be a first for guys here! Normally it takes a while to get the wives to come around, some never do.

Welcome voodoomagic from one state to the east. I live in rural northern Illinois. I, too, have a supportive wife. When my sister-in-law was visiting this weekend, she expressed disappointment I wasn't wearing a "kilt" (I had been doing some walking in rough woods in the cool of the morning earlier). I changed to real utility kilt for her the next morning. She and I are encouraging my brother to try something similar; he is not opposed.

Moonshadow, my wife helps as I pick out my skirts at the local shops. She loves it, she says its the only time she can get me to go clothes shopping. :D

Welcome to the forum of non-conformists. That sounds like the fastest jump into skirting.

Welcome, voodoomagic!

As others have mentioned, you're very lucky to have such a supportive wife. Before the incident in the hot garage, had she ever suggested any other traditionally female clothing. mannerisms, or activities?

Is there anywhere you won't wear a skirt?
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.
