Life in a Kaftan

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Life in a Kaftan

Postby Ron » Mon Apr 24, 2017 5:08 pm

I decided to stay in caftans permanently,no more pants and shirts for the most part
the only time that I will not be wearing a caftan will be the rare time that I am wearing a kilt.
otherwise 99.99 % I will be in a caftan

Nice!

I'm curious, do you get a lot of comments when you wear your caftans out in the world? I know when I wore my robe out a few Saturdays ago, it drew quite a bit of attention and questions! Quite a bit more than even my most flamboyant skirts...
