Re: Coronavirus, how are you managing at home?

I have many thousands of 35mm slides and have set up my light table and scanner, this should keep me out of trouble/occupied for weeks to come. I occasionally get out for a walk but prefer to stay in as both myself and my wife are at high risk, it is better to be safe than sorry. We have just been t...

Re: Why we wear skirts and how does it feel?

I agree with most comments especially the one by Happy-n-skirts. I too had painful post op pain from surgery took to skirts and dresses to stop the constriction and ease the pain. That was 12/13 years ago and my only regret is that I didnt do it sooner. I am an outdoor type living in the country and...

Skirts and health?

A recent BBC programme 'Trust me I'm a doctor' featured a piece that could be relevant to us skirt wearers. When we are born our bodies have a large proportion of brown fat cells which burn up calories to keep our small bodies warm. As we grow up we lose much of this brown fat except to an area arou...

Re: Denim dress

I have a denim dress and it is my least liked dress. Harsh fabric but ok for jobs around the house. Softer fabrics seem to fit better.

Re: Happy 39th Birthday Moonshadow!

Saw that boat at Ardfern on the Scottish west coast in spring last year. I thought then our moonshadow must be doing well!

Re: Hiking Skirt

My favourite hiking skirt is a Craghoppers Nosilife bought last year. I want the same again but the design has changed so that the waist level pockets with a very useful key lanyard have been replaced with pockets on the thighs!!! Imagine a long walk with keys constantly banging against your leg! Wh...

Re: To Kilt or not to kilt?

Having hated suits with a passion all of my life I got rid of my last suit not too long ago and have one kilt for formal attire, one for informal use and one as a work kilt plus many skirts and dresses. Get rid of that dreadful constriction of mind and body and enjoy the style and freedom of a kilt....

Re: Current events

Can the moderators step in and stop this nastiness? This forum is about men in skirts and not about gun politics. Most people this side of the pond dont want to know and I personally am sickened by guns and the vitriolic arguments that accompany them. I have been a member for many years and have enj...

school uniforms

Just seen on BBC News that school uniforms are to be cheaper and GENDER NEUTRAL. Girls can wear trousers and boys can wear skirts!

Re: leather skirts

Many thanks everybody, I think i'll leave it for now as I will be having a dress made up and have had a number of large outlays for birthdays, retirement etc. My original dressmaker has retired early due to repetitive strain injury in her hands and back from decades of dressmaking. I thought that it...

leather skirts

Does anyone have experience with leather/faux leather skirts?
Leather is too expensive but is faux leather any good? Does it look and feel like the real thing? What are the plus points and what are the negative points?
Thanks

Re: About as off-topic as it gets...

Yes, yes, yes. I can identify strongly with both the video and Carls piece. Although I have never been as driven to one career path I have explored all sorts of wonderous things from flying to mountaineering to music. In the 50,s and 60,s there was a kids comic called 'The Eagle' which was so inspir...

Re: thought experiment?

So, my skirt with an image of the Spitfire that I flew arrived and very nice it is. However, my male bulge coincides with the cockpit!!!
