Re: Can you identify this skirt?

I can't find that original image, but here's a Skirtcraft that's a very close match. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.co.uk%2Fpin%2F410390584771927723%2F&psig=AOvVaw19LnrrHPlH8GLYjCW3dLQI&ust=1590596990426000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAMQjB1qFwoTCPjM59b50ekCFQAAAAAdAA...

Can you identify this skirt?

Found on Pinterest.
No other information given. Skirtcraft possibly?

Re: Interesting article about the origin of Mary Jane shoes

There used to be a forum, looking very much like Skirtcafe, devoted to "Mary Janes" and other unisex footwear such as saddle shoes and English school sandals. I do hope that member is still active. Strap shoes like these have been associated with men and boys for centuries, including Columbus, Georg...

Re: Interesting article about the origin of Mary Jane shoes

@beachlion, I had a pair of those. Purchased by mail order from Zwartjes Schoenhandel (spelling?) in Amsterdam in 1974. Size 45. They cost about $15.00 U.S. They were dark brown, plain non-shiny leather, plain stitching. I saw some people wearing them where I was living at the time (Berkeley, Califo...

Re: Meggings

Like #brennk, I dislike the word "meggings." I own a drawer full of leggings (and a few tights). They are certainly cheap enough, if you go to the right stores. Some of mine are in basic black, some are in colorful patterns. One of my favorites is a camouflage legging from Rothco which I found at a ...

Re: Favourite shoes

I used to wear Capezio flats and jazz oxfords. This was late 1970s to early 1980s. I don't think these are being made anymore, which is unfortunate. When you find them, they are listed as "vintage." I had both the unadorned ballet flat, and one that they called "U shell buckle." It had an instep str...

Re: Tumblr blog

Here are two more. https://maleskirts.tumblr.com/archive https://loinclothsmaleskirts.tumblr.com/archive The trouble with Tumblr is that there is almost no way to trace a photo back to its original source. If you see a skirt or a dress that you might like to try on, it would be nice to find out who ...

Re: Camo skirt

Cabela's bayou skirt, my favorite. I own two of them. https://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas-Womens-Bayou-Skirt/1322707.uts?WT.tsrc=SOC&WT.mc_id=PIN_MRCH_HNT_GN But good luck finding it, since it is marked as "sold out" on the Cabela's web site. There was a long thread about camouflage skirts that ...

Re: hybrid style

The Rakuten is something I would wear. But not pay $200. How does it happen that they only exist in size 7? The Doc 8065 is on my all-time dream list (along with Clark's Joyance sandals the way they were made 60 years ago). So far, Doc has never made 8065 in my size, and I'm not sure why. I already ...

@Uncle Al, I respect your remarks as mod.
Apologies to JohnH and anyone who was offended.

"That said, all of us Yankee MIS will sleep easier if we can get the Senate to pass the Equality Act and Trump to sign it into federal law." Forget Trump.

Re: Youtube

I agree completely with Stu: "simple, practical alternative to trousers for both [i.e., all] sexes." I like Stu's H&M example for several reasons. First of all, I like corduroy. Second, it's understated and unobtrusive. Fits in anywhere: work, leisure, home, out and about. Third, it has belt loops, ...

Re: My work station for today

@Uncle Al, "Tea for Two" was composed by Vincent Youmans in 1925 as part of his musical, "No, No, Nanette." Shostakovich revised and orchestrated it in about 1927 as "Tahiti Trot." You can find many versions on YouTube. If you want to hear something really amazing, go to YouTube and look for Art Tat...
