Oh dear, I forecast storms in the Cappuccinos and South Latte seas.
There will also be severe disruption among the Teacups.

I’m Scottish. My comment is more self-deprecation than Anglo-Saxon smugness ;-)

Re: A Blast from the Past

With pleasure. Here’s Sophie. Sophie Thompson, Taunton, United Kingdom, 8 years ago “Everyone has missed the point. Cross-dressing is seen as a stigma because of the inferior view patriarchal society has on women, and this shoot is trying to address and change that. It's not just about acceptance fo...

Congratulations, USA…

…on getting to the last 16 of the football World Cup.

Not something that Scotland has ever managed to achieve!

Well done. Onwards and upwards.

Standard troglodyte comments from the Mail Morons - with an enlightened riposte by one lady.

Good points made by the article.

Re: The Michigan Daily: A Bad Bunny masterclass: adding “sazón” to male style

I don’t have an issue with the word “patriarchal” in this article. Given the culture being described, it’s probably accurate. I do have an issue - well, perhaps a fleeting disappointment - with the inference that these men are embracing the feminine. If clothing truly has no gender, then they are no...

Re: Is this a gender neutral skirt?

One pair of opaque tights, and/or knee high boots, and you’re sorted for the chill!

Skirts aren’t just for the summer. They are capable of being a choice all year round. Unless you live in Canada / Siberia / parts of the USA…

Re: Icon-Icon: The men’s fashion trends for spring-summer 2023

Since I joined this café in 1997, the world for men in skirts has changed a lot. While going from 0.01 to 0.5 is a lot, it’s still peripheral. There have been skirts for men in the past (1999-2001 saw a few wrap skirts) but nothing like now. You have a considerable number of influencers, and the res...

True! Another useful nugget, Al.

Even if we can manage (not remove) our self-doubt, that’s a good start.

Re: Skirts, the wearing of.

That’s a great story - and for me, brings this thread back to the very start and Steve’s story. Affirming stuff - both stories.

Re: Men in skirts around the world - Straw Poll

Okay,I have a few. 1999 - guy in a skirt, sheer tights, heels at the 1999 Clothes Show, NEC, Birmingham. I was in a grey kilt at the time - bought at the show. 1999 - Grand Hotel, Brighton. Corporate function. One of the serving staff was a slim young guy in skirt, womens’s top, sheer tights, heels....

Re: Virgin updates uniform policy

I’d love to get the dark uniform: mens jacket, shirt, tie, then match with a skirt, hosiery, heels. The latter would be modest in height: it’s a working uniform. I do find though that some heel plus a low vamp shrinks my feet, a result that I find aesthetically pleasing. Mind you, I’d love the above...

Re: Skirts for Men: Why More Men Should Wear Them

Why is there a discussion of the bible here? I doubt any religious forums will include debates about skirt wearing. Hi, Midas. I think it reflects the fact that we have a lot of posters from the USA, a country that tends to be much more religious than Europe, which in turn is rather more religious ...

Re: shaving

Spray tan? Nah! I’ll just wear nude sheer hosiery. No mess, touch of class, nice feel, job done ;-)

Each to their own though, and your idea is a good one if you don’t like sheer hosiery.
