Re: Kilt-Entry Level Skirt

Certainly the kilt is widely advocated as an entry level skirt for a guy. What I find interesting is that it is only one among many of a plethora of "male" skirts from around the world and I wonder why? One factor could be, that for a small country, descendant Scots are highly represented across th...

Kilting Diversity

Instead of a single design, kilting seems to have diversified into a group of similar designs.

Re: BusinessWorld: Will the perfect men’s dress ever exist — and would men wear it?

Suggestion to those who would market a teeshirt dress for men....

Avoid the word "dress". Market the garment as a "tee", as though the name has been casually contracted.

Re: What's in a Name

I'm no longer looking to procreate (actually I never wanted to knowing the trajectory of the local "society") so that's not a concern. But it would be nice to find a good woman whom I could snuggle up with at night where we could ward off chill for each other from outside. I'm getting set to jettis...

Re: Floor-sweepers coming back?

Agreed.
And even if the skirts were very average in appearance, that would be an improvement over the status quo.

Re: What's in a Name

Consider the term "trousers". In the early 21st century does this word have any connotations of gender? It may be possible that "skirt" will become a generic term without such connotations.

Re: What's in a Name

Unless a design already has its own traditional name (kilt, sarong, etc.), the word that comes to mind is "skirt". I imagine that most people will think "skirt", with the possible exception of "kilt".

I expect that acceptance will come very gradually in any case, so don't worry about it.

Re: The Sydney Morning Herald: Is the Australian men’s market ready for skirts yet?

As I recall, Stu's marketing ploy was discussed awhile back. Perhaps a skirt that has been marketed towards larger women could be adapted. Note-if you want to sell to men decent pockets will be desirable. If the basic garment is already commercially viable with women, that might provide insurance ag...
