Re: Legitimizing a Day in a Dress for Men

So PLEASE, stop denying your genuine selves! Stop looking for the right time and place to wear your skirt in public, with the exception of work, and just do it! That is a very legitimate point of view, even for some folks whose circumstances permit them to do so at work. But there is a value to mas...

Re: Men in Traditional Summer Dresses

As a " Man in a Skirt " for many years , I find it interesting that many of my friends share my doubts concerning wearing dresses in Public......Perhaps this is because we have no experience of going out on the street as a " Man in a Dress ", thus we have no confidence in dressing in this different...

Re: Clothes at Home For The Winter

We're probably done with 100+ degree temperatures now and until next May or do, but yes, living somewhere warm does avoid the need to bundle up. High 65 degrees, low 35 degrees is about as cold as it gets here. If that was my typical temperature range I'd wear skirts all year. But it's colder in Ne...

Re: Where Do we Draw the Line ?

SO, I think those things that we perceive as "feminine" probably have some connection with our biological evolution. My theory is that our sense of what is "pretty" is part of the evolved attributes that females use to attract males.... ...and yet in the animal kingdom it's usually the opposite... ...

Re: Where Do we Draw the Line ?

So have no fear, you can dress as girly as YOU please and your masculinity will still shine through. My only suggestion is that whatever you wear, make sure it expresses your genuine self. This is my philosophy well stated. I draw the line at clothes that just aren't me! I can spend a lot of time b...

Re: Wearing a Dress in Public Today

PDX and Grok, I appreciate the input. Skirting had its own learning curve, finding out about godet, A-line, tiered, etc. types... I have thus far never considered types or styles of dresses. Never knew what a trapeze dress was until I just looked it up! PDX, I've admired your style in various posted...

Re: Wearing a Dress in Public Today

Wore a dress in public today... FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!! Finally decided to give it a try after skirting has become so normal and everyday. There was a little psychological hangup with the idea of wearing a dress... but you know what? Wearing a dress is pretty much like wearing a skirt! For my "gat...

Re: Finally went skirted to a baseball game

Have been skirted numerous times to baseball games since the last post, in several ballparks. Usually wearing one of two Red Sox skirts I have. Last night, went to see the Miami Marlins. No reactions whatsoever, at least I didn't notice any (typical). Tonight I saw the Braves beat the Cubs in Atlant...

Re: Are We Winning?

Are WE (the Skirt Cafe crowd) winning? Yes. We are wearing the clothes we like to wear. We are helping our fellow men wear skirts as an acceptable clothing choice in public. We are gradually increasing our numbers (seems that way; maybe the moderators know how our numbers are trending). We are easin...

Re: Slips as shapewear and as undergarments

One more reason to wear a slip or half-slip: they might help the skirt stay cleaner regarding personal hygiene IF one wants to go commando. (Undies occasionally get soiled!) Sometimes I have problems: while I'm wearing a slip, a skirt sometimes slides downward because there is less friction; a belt ...

Re: Ladies' tops that are not feminine

I find my problem with ladies' tops are not the styles but the length; most of them have a short torso. If anyone finds a top of a decent length let me know!!! I agree -- I have had to discard some tops that were just too short -- I bought them years ago without really checking the length. Best adv...

Re: Ladies' tops that are not feminine

I've tried a few and have mixed feelings. ... All in all, wearing women's tops hasn't been nearly as edgy (i.e. interesting) as I expected. When I first started replacing boring men's shirts with women's tops, I tended to favor unfeminine ones. I wasn't yet into skirting. But now I find the girly o...

Re: Skirted London Weekend

Funnily enough though I find it a lot easier to be naked on a beach full of people than I do wearing a skirt but that is changing more each day. Nice comparison. I'm also a naturist, and the first time I was nude in the company of others I was uneasy for about 5 minutes; the first time skirted in p...

Re: To Dress, Or To Overdress?

I never liked fancy dress in standard male clothes -- still don't enjoy wearing coat and tie which I do maybe 2-3 times a year. I never gave much thought to what I wore every day, since it was the usual boring male clothes; I dressed for practicality, from shorts and T shirt to blue jeans, polo shir...
