Re: How far we've come

The Internet can be helpful for small businesses, for niche businesses.

Re: How far we've come

When I first walked off the street into this Cafe I believed that I was the only man in the world who was comfortable wearing a skirt, how wrong was I! When I was growing up males weren't supposed to be interested in skirts. So I kept quiet. Which brings up a question-how many other boys were inter...

Re: The New Macabi Skirt

I think that they could use male models for the Slim version, as well as the knee length.

I have to wonder about the design trade offs in the original Macabi skirt. I can imagine a simplified version where there is means to secure the hem-for diaper mode.

Choosing Your Battles Carefully

If I recall correctly, Moon Shadow, you were careful to conform outwardly when on the job. Your skirting did not impinge on the actual work place, so your employers could afford to be tolerant. I don't know your neighbors, so I can only speculate. Perhaps they finally got used to you, and now view y...

Re: The New Macabi Skirt

Just placed an order for the original Macabi skirt. Extra Large for the waist, short in length, and Raspberry Wine (red).

Not going to do much outdoors-y stuff while under lock down. But I've been meaning to experiment with a skirt longer than knee length.

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

Thanks for posting that image, Stu.

Indeed Pdxfashionpioneer, I do expect that change will require a sustained effort over quite a few years.

BTW, if I were to market "gender fluid" skirts, I would include male models.

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

To promote MIS to the mainstream, it seems that:

1. One would have to sweat blood....

2. Over a long period....

3. To see even modest change.

I think that the real fun will be with subcultures! :alien:

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

Shoes with a denim skirt? Probably shoes that you might wear with jeans. Definitely not anything remotely dressy.

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

This thread has drifted...the topic now seems to be how to sell MIS to the mainstream of society. (As I recall there was a thread about MIS and subcultures). Kilts, of course, are a special case-accepted as mens wear by the mainstream, but uncommon. There may be a very few candidate designs that mig...

Re: Fashion media promoting skirts for men

I would try to match the color of the skirt with the color of the hat.

Of course, the heat is a good argument for wearing skirts. :!:

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

Looked at Etsys collection of "gender fluid" skirts. So far as I can tell, all the models are women. So I suspect that "gender fluid" is just another gimmick.

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

Yes, Stu, this has been mentioned before. Skirts that are supposedly "unisex", but all the models are women. It seems to me that it would be relatively simple to add an image of a male model to the web site, at a minimum. The Macabi web site has a token male model, though their products are marketed...
